A girlfriend pulled the ultimate prank on her boyfriend – by making him believe he was getting the PlayStation 5 for Christmas.
Rebecca Redbourn, 21, had her 23-year-old partner Luke Coburn think he was getting the new PS5 games console this year.
Luke has had his PlayStation 3 since he was 14, so it's fairly understandable for him to get a new one right?
So Rebecca decided to prank her boyfriend by "accidentally" texting him a screenshot of a PlayStation 5 in their hallway.
Revealing it was his Christmas present, Luke was so excited and admitted he was "struggling" to hold it together.
But poor Luke was left fuming only when the mum-of-two revealed the truth behind the photo.
Instead the mum decided to use a super-realistic filter, making him believe she had ordered the console when she hadn't.
Rebecca, from Wales, said: "I didn't think he would believe me.
"I expected him to click on straight away, but when he fell for it I couldn't help but play along.
"I felt guilty afterwards. He's still using the PS3 he had as a teenager and was really looking forward to an upgrade, bless him."
In a conversation shared online, Rebecca told Luke: "Omg look what just got delivered."
She added: "The box is huge! How am I supposed to hide that until Christmas.
"Omg!!! Ignore that. I was supposed to send that to Kathie [my sister]."
Luke replied: "You best be f***ing joking."
Rebecca continued: "I don't even know what to say. I'm so sorry, it was supposed to be a surprise! I can't believe I sent it to you."
Sending a second photo of what looked like the console, she revealed: "I've put it behind the door in the spare bedroom."

Rebecca teased: "[You're] not having it until Christmas."
At this point, Luke was almost in tears, telling his girlfriend: "I can't believe you sent it to me though, d***."
He continued: "I would [have] cried opening that haha but I'm still struggling to hold in my s*** now.
"Where how and when and what the f*** I don't know what to say."
Rebecca told him: "How would I have pictures of it [in] our house if I was joking, d***."
Luke gushed to his girlfriend: "F*** sake I've gone all weird haha I love you so much aye I don't deserve that though!
"And how the f*** do I stay away from it for a month and not just that how the f*** do I match that for you hahaha."
Rebecca then confessed: "I can't, I'm weak. I'm sorry. It's a filter on Instagram."
Her boyfriend then said: "You're a f***ing b*****d I'm gonna f***ing kill you honest to God.
"Now don't even speak to me you t*** I was thinking too [there's] no way but it was so believable."
Rebecca shared the exchange online where it racked up more than 7,900 likes, shares and comments.
She said: "We'll still have an amazing Christmas. But Luke won't be happy unwrapping socks rather than the PS5 he was expecting."
Luke, who immediately messaged his pals to reveal the news, added: "I'm still a bit gutted about it."
"I'm starting to see the funny side, but obviously she had me a good one."
The PlayStation 5 is released in the UK today, November 12.
