The Full Story:
A couple's gender-reveal party recently went viral after it failed in the most hilarious way.
Video posted to Instagram shows a man and a woman using sticks to swat at a big black balloon that's seemingly tied to the ground as part of the couple's gender-reveal celebration with family and friends.
You can see loved ones watching the couple while shouting at them to hit and pop the balloon, which presumably contained confetti or smoke that would indicate the sex of their child. The only problem is that one of the swings by the soon to be dad ended up loosening up the string on the balloon and it flew away.
The man attempts to chase after the balloon, and even tries hopping a fence to grab at it, only to fall to the ground in defeat.
