Dante Johnson, now aged 10, had never seen a limousine in real life before his most recent birthday. Thanks to his loving aunt Nita Fisher, the young boy was able to enjoy the time of his life when she surprised him with the best gift ever, a limo ride. The absolute shock on his face when he spotted his aunt in the limo was caught on camera by Dante's mom, Tamara McKinnon. The video clip she recorded was posted online, where it quickly went viral. During the limo ride, the 10-year-old enjoyed his favorite music and an endless supply of apple cider, Good Morning America reports.


"He said he had only seen them in the movies," Fisher shared in an interview with the media outlet. "I was like, that'll be such a good idea to come and pick him up from school in a limo. Once I thought of it, I was like, this is better than a gift because it's an experience for him. He's never going to forget this." Indeed, she would be right. The young boy was caught off guard when he spotted the limo on the street and his aunt rolled the window down to greet him.


She said, "I just rolled the window down and he's just in complete disbelief. It was so magical. He was so taken aback. I've never seen him so speechless. For a while, he was in shock. But then he just kept saying, 'I can't believe this. I can't believe I'm really in the limo.' I said, 'Oh, it's really happening.' And he was like, 'I'm just living my best life.'" After his initial shock, Dante quickly settled into the limo. Fisher likened the experience to that of the fictional Kevin McCallister from the 1990 hit family comedy "Home Alone." "He just kept giving me his glass so I can refill it with apple cider," she recalled. "We were playing all his favorite songs and we let him DJ so he's just like, rapping and singing."


The 10-year-old rode the limo all the way to the wharf in San Francisco, where he hung out with sea otters and enjoyed his favorite doughnuts. Later on in the day, Dante spent the perfect afternoon with a private watch party at the movies. Fisher explained, "He is still on cloud nine about this and I've been sharing the response with him. Our local radio station put the story on the radio and so when he got to school, a lot of the staff was coming up to him like, 'Oh, my gosh, we heard about you on the radio.' And he told his mom, 'Oh my god, I'm famous now.'"


Indeed he is. After his aunt shared a clip of his experience on Twitter, he went viral. In the last week alone, Fisher's tweet has garnered over 166,000 likes and more than 19,000 retweets. Twitter users simply could not get over how amazing the aunt's gift was. One user noted, "He’s going to remember that for the rest of his life. Giving a kid a great birthday has a lasting effect especially because so many adults don’t celebrate their birthdays because they didn’t get anything as a kid." Check out the video below.
