The lavish lifestyle of the affluent Gumede family once again broke Twitter after a video of their son’s reaction to being gifted a brand new Porshe GT 3 left Twitter in tears with laughter.
The family fooled the young man, letting him believe he was receiving a Boxster S – still not bad for his first car.
While he was happy about his gift, his excitement at finding out what his real present was left the family -and Twitter- howling with laughter.
The video was posted to social media by his older brother, Themba, who expressed pride and admiration for his sibling.

Earlier this week, Themba tweeted that his brother would probably be getting a better car than he has, but added that believed his brother deserved it.
Twitter shared the family’s excitement, proud of the family’s achievements and that they’re able to joke about receiving a car as high-end as a Boxster.
Social media could relate to the younger brother’s reaction to such an extravagant gift, having no doubt that their response to being presented with a brand-new Porsche would be just as ecstatic and perhaps even more dramatic.

Twitter user, Don Castillio Franco even humorously offered to take the Boxster off the family’s hands, seeing as they weren’t planning on using it after all.
The heart-warming moment served as a reminder for Simbo Mzalisi and Anele Nyanda that-along with most of South Africa’s youth- they were still counting their coins and dreaming of affording a pre-loved Uno while the Gumede boys were out there balling in sports cars.
23-year-old Mbuelo Ramafamba offered to be the family’s adopted child, just in case they were looking, but his bid was contested by other users claiming they have more experience at ‘childing’ and would be a better fit for the couple, who already have seven children between the two them.
