Lad Tricks Family Into Thinking PlayStation 5 Was New Wi-Fi Router

Lad Tricks Family Into Thinking PlayStation 5 Was New Wi-Fi Router

A lad went to some quite incredible lengths to hide his new PlayStation 5 from his family.

Lê Gia Hưng spent big on the next-generation console from Sony but didn't feel he could possibly face his relatives and come clean about the expensive purchase.

And so his devised a cunning plan to keep it all under wraps. Hưng, who lives in Vietnam, pretended that the device was a new Wi-Fi router.

Even with its size, the console does look like something you'd have controlling your network.

To make everything seem legitimate, he asked the employee from the store to pose as an engineer from Viettel, a leading internet provider in Vietnam.

He got the store clerk to "install" the device and to top it all off, the mission was complete when he slapped on a Wi-Fi sticker. Genius.

Evidently proud of how his plan came together perfectly, Hưng shared a superb tongue-in-cheek post on Facebook.

"The first story of the year about the service provider. At the beginning of the year, my family found that the internet was a bit fluttering, I called the operator to take care of it.

"Viettel's customer, I was totally surprised about Viettel's other way of taking care of Viettel's goods. Around 1 hour after the call, Viettel's party confirmed the problem was in the device's place, so the staff gave the latest generation wifi upgrading equipment.

"After replacing the new device, our network speed improved beyond expectations. I'm really excited and recommend everyone to use Viettel. Ps. Even though the new wifi device is a bit big but it's not a problem."

It seems as though Hưng drew inspiration from a South Korean cartoon whereby a man tried to convince his wife that the PS5 console was in fact a Wi-Fi router called "Plash Speed".

Back in December, a similar story saw a chap tell his wife that the console was an air-purifier but have to sell the device when she realised he was having her on.

Honesty is key, folks.
