Father Gives His 18-year-old Daughter a Porsche as Gift on Her Birthday (Video)
Some parents take gift giving to a whole new level. From super expensive watches to fancy cars, they hold nothing back when spoiling their kids.
A video went viral recently, showing a Johannesburg girl getting surprised at school by her dad, or at least we hope it was her dad, for her 18th birthday.
The footage shows the girl, her dad and a few of her fellow pupils making their way to the parking lot, where a brand new Porsche was waiting for her.
The older man covered her eyes as they made their way to the luxury car, and she constantly heard saying she’s going to cry.
The video shook social media, with even a South African former police minister Fikile Mbalula sharing it on his Twitter page.
Tweeps were quick to respond to the former police minister’s question on whether they would buy their kids such extravagant gifts.
I won’t. Even if I have money. He will get a Ford Figo or Corsa. He will buy a Porsche himself with his hard earned cash. He needs to understand the principle.

The video does not have that much information, other than what is seen happening. It’s unknown when it was filmed, since some social media posts indicate it happened in August last year.

But, if it is the same video tweeps were talking about in 2017, it was not until now that it went viral.
