Joe and Leela Krummel from Minnesota wanted to find out the sex of their baby in a creative way, so they handed over the sealed card their doctor gave them containing the gender to a local balloon store. Yes it sounds risky (as they later found out in the hilarious video below), but they trusted the “confused employee” with the info. Probably should have thought twice about that, but whatever.
The soon-to-be parents asked the employee to fill a cardboard box with either pink or blue balloons depending on the gender listed in the envelope. Unfortunately things didn’t go as planned. Within the first 30 seconds of the clip, the couple — who have been together for the last nine years — get ready to open the box by counting to three. When they finally open it up, a sh*t ton of different colored balloons pop out.
Womp, womp. Naturally, Leela was pissed. This is not the face of someone who is excited to get rainbow balloons.
Yeah, the balloon store f*cked things up. At the bottom of the box, the couple found the original envelope containing their baby’s sex. Way to go, jerks!! In an attempt to get things right, the couple’s family and friend put together another gender reveal with the right color balloons.
So what was the result? Find out in the video below.
Hooray! Congratulations guys! Very exciting. Now can we stop doing gender reveals? Have we finally killed the trend? Fingers crossed — they’re kind of annoying.
