Riding high on the success of his iPhone video editing app Videoshop, developer Joe Riquelme decided to splurge on his parents for Christmas.

How much did he splurge? Let’s just say that he made every other kid on Earth look like little ingrates by comparison.

He paid off his parents’ mortgage in full. And he documented it for the rest of us, just so we could share in the joy.

In the video, Riquelme hands his mother an envelope. Although puzzled at first, when she opens it, she finds documentation from Bank of America, saying the mortgage has been paid off.

In addition, Riquelme included a note. It read: “Your house is paid off. Merry Xmas.”

Obviously, there’s an epic meltdown of emotion that immediately follows.

I think we can all admit, Riquelme just upped the game for the rest of us sons and daughters out there. And to think, all I gave my parents this year were some things off their Amazon wishlists.
