Just in time for Mother's Day, here's a video to remind you that it doesn't matter what you get your mother, because you'll always be second fiddle to the guy who paid off his mom's mortgage.

YouTuber iProjectAtlas is a Canadian man of Ethiopian descent who decided to celebrate his birthday by "celebrating the woman who gave me life."

Despite earning only 30k a year at the time, he managed to set some money aside each month until he reached his goal: Saving enough to pay off his mother's mortgage.


Then, on his special day, he set up a camera and handed the check over to his mom.

Like I said, Mother's Day is canceled.
