Video of the Week – Man Surprises Fiancé With Long-Lost Childhood Friend
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to start scrambling to figure out the perfect present for your significant other.
Unless you’re this guy…who’s already got his gift-giving bases covered for probably the next five years or so.
After presenting his now-fiancé Jess with an engagement ring on Christmas Eve of 2012, Vas Alli needed to do something to top such a memorable gift this year…so he decided to have her childhood teddy bear restored!
“After a month of research and looking through over 10,000 vintage teddy bears on online, I was able to find clues to reconstruct her childhood teddy bear ‘Whitey.’ Whitey was given to her as a gift during her mother’s baby shower for Jess, so he is technically older than she is!” Alli writes in the video’s description on YouTube.
“When I began this venture,” Alli continues, “Whitey was in two pieces (his head ripped off) and missing an ear, his nose, both eyes, and not to mention half of his stuffing was gone. So, I took him to the Secaucus Doll and Teddy Bear Hospital, and after a week, they were able to restore him to his original glory.”
Alli’s idea may not have been as pricey as a diamond ring, but it sure seems like it meant plenty to Jess! Check out the touching clip and tell us what you think!
