A video of moment has gone viral and been viewed almost nine million times.

Mike King swore to his father Roger that he would buy him an iconic Chevy Bel Air when he hit the milestone.

His family videoed his reaction when he got the gift, which left him in tears.

The two men then engage in a long hug.

“This is real”, Roger remarks as rubbed the green chassis and kisses its white roof.

“You can’t afford this,” he said as he wiped away his tears.

Mike actually bought the car over two years ago and kept it in storage for his father.

“Growing up my dad always dreamed of owning a 57 chevy bel-air. He grew up poor in a family of 7 children”, Mike says in the video description.

“He never thought he would be able to own his dream vehicle but would talk about it all the time”, he added.
