On Sunday, San Francisco 49ers cornerback D.J. Reed surprised his mom with a brand new BMW. You car junkies out there can probably recognize what year this BMW is and how much the cost of the car is. Here is the video:
You see plenty of videos where athletes are making great gestures for their family, like buying them houses and cars. I will always share these videos because we shouldn’t be normalizing these acts. The excitement and genuine surprise from Reed’s mom make this video perfect. Reed starts the video off by saying how his mom has wanted the two-seater, Beamer. He calls her out with the keys in hand, and she walks out in disbelief. “What is that?” A smile turns into a laugh. A laugh turns into a scream, as she then asks Reed’s over and over if the car is hers.
It’s a really cool gesture, and the fact that it was a surprise made it even better. Reed’s mom thanked him more than five times in that short span. That’s how caught off guard she was. Good on you, D.J.
