Talk about an amazing Christmas surprise – Joe Riquelme, an entrepreneur who created the iPhone app Videoshop, paid off his parents’ mortgage for the ultimate holiday gift.

Joe caught the moment he gave his parents the gift on video and the clip shows his parents cuddled around him on the couch as he gives them an envelope containing the special note.

“Your house is paid off. Merry Xmas. – Joe,” the note reads along with a check list featured “raising kids,” “college loans,” and “mortgage” all checked off.

    I can barely pay off my monthly student loan payment with my paycheck, so unfortunately my gift to my parents isn’t all that grand. Thanks for making me feel like shit.

    isn’t this what all children supposed to do when time comes? take care of their is like an unspoken rule…

    unfortunately people forget about it and treat it as an exceptionor a miracle when it has to be ‘the rule’

    That is the f&#king most stupidest thing. So because *you* can’t afford to do good deeds it means others shouldn’t either because it makes you feel like shit? What an idiot. I think you’d be less critical had the family been white Americans. Lets get real and cut the crap. Asshole. Rme.

  • don’t be nosey

    R U sure it’s not a christmasy-warm-your-heart ad for friggin “iPhone app Videoshop”…?

    The 30-word article doesn’t include his age, studies, siblings, finances of his family, upbringing, anything related to the matter at the core, but specifically names the app.

    That’s kinda fishy….
