Have You Seen This? Kid experiences true power for 1st time

THE FRONT YARD — Who among us hasn’t experienced a rush from feeling true power for the first time? And once you get a taste of that power, there’s no going back.

At least, that’s what this kid seemed to learn when he picked up a leaf blower for the first time and went wild with how powerful he felt. As his dad, YouTuber MakoTitan, said, “My son picked up my father’s leaf blower and immediately turned into a super villain.”

Super villain or not, this kid is having the best time ever with his grandpa’s leaf blower — so much so that he has to actually set the leaf blower down to fully express his joy at his newfound power — and the resulting video is a true joy to watch.

I think we can all remember being a kid and experiencing something so thrilling that we almost couldn't contain our excitement. But personally, I relate more to his little sister who is the unfortunate bystander/victim to this power rush and gets blown away with a face full of leaf blower air.

To that girl, I would say this: "It's OK, you'll grow up with a lot of things to hold over your brother's head. You'll be stronger for it in the end, and maybe you'll even have more Twitter followers than him one day too." (Just kidding, Twitter followers obviously won't matter by the time these kids have grown up.)

Watch the video and then let us know in the comments who you relate to more: the little kid with the leaf blower or the sibling who always gets tormented by her older brother's antics.
