This grandpa leaped with joy and started playing with his present as soon as his grandson handed it over to him.
It's fortunate for any of us to spend a good share of our childhood and adulthood with our grandparents still around us. All those sweet memories of grandmother cooking for us during our summer holidays and playtime with our grandfather make up an essential part of our core memory. So, when we grow up and start earning, we wish to give them back at least a portion of the happiness they have given us throughout their lives. Adam Percival came up with the perfect gifting idea this Christmas.
Radio host and TV producer Adam Percival—who goes by @adampercival1 on TikTok—shared an amusing Christmas video of giving his 85-year-old granddad a gift for the occasion. The jolly and enthusiastic elderly man quickly tears open his present as Percival hands over a bigger gift to his grandma. As the elderly couple unwraps their gifts, people behind the camera but not visible in the frame fail to hold back their laughter. The gifts turn out to be X-shot toy guns that can shoot plastic pellets and are manufactured for kids.
It seems that his grandpa is totally fine with his wife getting a bigger gun because he immediately starts playing with his present and starts to shoot pellets, which fail to launch successfully and he, along with other people present at the scene, collectively erupt into bouts of laughter. He continues to run around and have fun with his new toy gun as the video ends abruptly. The TikTok audience admitted that this is probably one of the most wholesome videos they have come across lately and wished for a longer and healthier life for Percival's grandpa.

The joy is what Christmas is about, not how much you spend on something." @lookingforasugarhigh remarked, "Adorable and it should have been the same size gun for each though. Make it a fair fight." @jacquelinedouglas82 shared, "Well, we got one for our boss for people who don't listen." For those who don't know, this isn't the first time Percival has recorded gifting his grandpa something interesting and unusual for any celebratory occasion. For the elderly gentleman's birthday, Percival posted a video in May 2023, where he gave him a remote-controlled drone meant for kids.
His grandpa was equally overjoyed to receive that gift as well. He took hold of the remote and started figuring out how to operate the drone properly. At first, he clicked the wrong button and the drone ended up hitting Percival, who was filming his grandpa. Next up, the drone landed in the bush and Percival had to fetch it back like a dutiful grandson. Percival starts screaming when his grandpa playfully switches on the drone while Percival is still holding it. He screams and laughs as the plastic blades start hitting his fingers.

Once the drone is back in the air, his grandpa is back at it, trying his best to perform as a drone pilot and having a gala time doing it. @gracecowan123 wrote in the comment section, "We got a remote-controlled helicopter for our grandad's birthday and he used it to annoy his goats." @k10203045 added, "This is the most wholesome thing I’ve seen all day." Percival continues to post pictures and videos with his grandpa throughout all his social media handles and one can even spot him busting some dance moves with his grandson at a dancefloor.
