This Christmas video is both a Tear Jerker and Heartwarming. Remember the guy who would make raunchy, laugh-out-loud videos about fail toys? This video is NOTHING like those. Rather, Mike talks about the life of a woman who lost her son and husband during World War II, and how every Christmas until her death she would buy gifts in the hope that they would return. He also describes a similar story about his grandmother. Mike is clearly mournful throughout. He even opens a vintage wrapped Christmas present circa 1940s, but chokes up when trying to analyze the toy itself. It is very sad, but comes with a message of hope.
In a Winnie the Pooh toy review, he mentions having once had a similar Tigger toy, but a friend's daughter loved it so much he gave it to her.
