It's Stranger Things, Right? That's what you like?" He replies with a simple "yes" and his mom continues to ask, "Cool what's the other thing?"
As he's playing with one of the toys, he hears a squeaky sound and his mom asks, "What is that?" The boy looks up, a little confused, and replies, "There are dog toys". His mom seems surprised and asks, "Oh, are you serious? They're dog toys?" to which he confirms that they are indeed dog toys. But then, from behind him, his father appears with a cute black dog in his arms. The boy is stunned and his mom apologizes, saying, "I am so sorry, but you need a dog, Happy Birthday!"
