All of us love to make surprises for our loved ones, especially when there is a special event coming up. We can’t wait to see their reaction once they see our surprise.
Whether they are the sweetest or their gesture is the biggest prank in the history of birthday celebrations, there is no doubt that these two brothers’ surprise made their father’s birthday extra special.
Chris Ferry Jr. and Mike Ferry wanted to make sure their father, Chris Ferry, knew and felt how much they appreciate and love him.
So they decided to buy a billboard and put his name, face and phone number outside Atlantic City.
Mike Ferry told WLNY-TV: “I just wanted to wish him an extra special birthday. I just wanted to say I love my dad, I love my family, and I’m really glad he’s getting attention because he’s a great guy.”
The billboard reads: “Wish my dad happy birthday — Love, Your Sons.” Their father’s photo and phone number is included.
Christopher Ferry wrote on Facebook: “My brother and I always traveled together playing Ice Hockey and would enjoy our Applebee’s dinners with our dad and all the other hockey dads on the road. Most importantly we loved pranking him and telling the waiter or waitress it was his birthday.
“It was always the greatest for us to see the expression on his face when they came out with a lighted birthday cake and singing happy birthday in front of all the other hockey dads.
“This year we wanted to make his birthday super special and give him a little extra attention. Let’s make his cell phone light up! Happy Birthday Dad! Love, your sons.”
Dad Ferry, whose birthday is March 16, told WPBF: “I think I’ve had 15,000 calls, texts and Facebook hits in the last three days. I’ve received texts from all over the world, as far as the Philippines, Kenya, Luxembourg. It’s been crazy.”
Happy 62nd birthday Mr. Ferry!
