(PIX11) — A young man captured his parents’ reaction on tape when he gifted them a paid-off mortgage.

YouTube user “Joeytrombone” is nestling with his two parents on a couch, enjoying Christmas.

He pulls a small, folded envelope of his pocket and hands it to his mom — “I got a little gift for you.”

His parents look up in interest, and his mom slowly opens the envelope.
