A boy with autism burst into tears of joy when his mother took home a McDonald’s meal after a 10-week closure in Singapore.
Mama Wati filmed the moment she got home with the McDonald’s party and gave her son Adam Bin Mohammad Irwan a surprise.
In the clip, Adam appears to collapse as he walks out of his room.
But as soon as he sees the takeout boxes on the table, he starts to cry and gives his mother a hug.
“Thank you, thank you,” he says.
In another clip, Adam sees his meal as he picks up a chicken nugget, bites it and rubs the food on his cheek.
Wati shared the adorable clip, which has been viewed 73,000 times, on Facebook, explaining that her son’s “ overreaction ” was due to his mild autism and sensory sensitivity.
She added that his favorite food is McNuggets with chips and ice cream.
McDonald’s restaurants in Singapore were closed from April 19 to help prevent the spread of Covid-19.
A viewer said, “This boy’s heartfelt response is enough to touch anyone’s heart.”
In the UK, McDonald’s has reopened 33 of its restaurants, offering customers a limited drive-thru menu.
Huge rows of cars lined up outside the selected stores as fast food enthusiasts tried to get their favorite meals while the rules for locking were relaxed.
The new menu includes Happy Meals, Big Macs, McFlurries and McNuggets.
Unfortunately, milkshakes and breakfast items are not included, given the changed opening hours of the stores.
