Watch a three-year-old get Spider-Man for Christmas

(Video link) Before signing off tonight, I strongly urge you to set aside whatever bad news you may have seen today and watch this adorable video of a three-year-old boy named Kieran asking Santa Claus for Spider-Man and then having his Christmas wish immediately granted. The video was created by Sean Ward, a long-time friend of Kieran's family and the filmmaker behind the extremely popular (and hilarious) series of Toronto Batman videos. Way to end a great year on a heartwarming note! (Thanks, Sean!)

    @Boundegar – Spydermens are iraqneds, not hyoomuns. :P

    Good thing he didn’t ask for the Incredible Hulk.

    What does a Spider Man eat?

  5. Sorry to rain on everyone’s parade, but that’s not Santa.  The real Santa doesn’t have an Ontarian accent.  (though to be honest, the accent makes for some nice “ho ho ho”s)

      Neither does Spiderman, eh.  He’s from Queens.  And you’re not raining on our parade.  Just the parade of A SMALL CHILD WHO JUST WANTED TO MEET SPIDERMAN.

    I sincerely miss being able to have my wildest fantasies realised by people in shoddy costumes.

    Yes, yes, smutty implication, but really, imagine being able to believe once again that someone merely sporting a polyester beard was Father Christmas.

    Incidentally, that kid got a better deal than these ones: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yb3txW1p1D8

    That video was incredibly underwhelming.

    Spiderman is for life, not just for Christmas.

    Pass on doing Santa’s bells.

    who would have thought that those spiderman poses look much better on paper than in real life

  12. This is adorable. But did anyone else flash back to “Audition” when the kid started unwrapping Spidey? The way he was curled up in the paper reminded me of one of the film’s first scares.

  13. Marya says:

     Maybe I have ice in my heart,
    But how is that kid not spoiled?

  14. Greg Van Antwerp says:

    I, too, was underwhelmed.  Why was I expecting a kid bouncing off the walls with happiness? Or am I flashing back to my own deeply hidden disappointment with one xmas a long time ago…(*sniff*)
