mariachi bands are booked? Hey, Ali’s mom, how are you? – Oh my god. – [Voiceover] Oh my god,
Ali, happy birthday! – Oh my god, thank you, this is crazy! Did you do this? – Hell no. – Oh that’s nice, Freddy

We’re at work. – Tada! You think she’ll dig it? – Ah, damn it! I was only in for twenty minutes! – Is your name Ali, by chance? – Yeah. – A little birdy told me it’s someone special’s birthday. Sorry about that. You don’t have to worry about this. – Thank you so much! – Thank you, happy birthday! ♫ Happy birthday dear Ali ♫ – ‘Scuse me, sir? Everyone sings. – I’m not even a part of your party. – So that means you can’t sing? Here you go. – Thank you. Oh my gosh. What is this? – It’s the very first picture of you! Oh my god, Freddy, that’s so weird. I love it. – Happy birthday. – Thank you. This is the best day ever. I can’t believe this, it’s so nice. – I’m headed out, but I
owe you a birthday drink. – Oh, okay, thanks. – Hmmm. – Hey, the party turned out really nice. – Thanks! – Do you need a ride home? – No, you know I didn’t
get any work done today. I have to stay. – Freddy. – I know. – Freddy, Freddy, Freddy.

  1. Its my birthday tomorow my best friend said she was going to comefor so long and i was so excited only for it to turn out she cant come


  3. This is why I don't tell people when my birthday is unless they ask and they're not strangers. On my birthday I avoid talking as much as possible. And when people ask again I tell them it passed and they get so sad, I like watching people suffer.

  4. Be happy you have a friend like this ALL my friends just say happy bday and walk away. Well I decorate their lockers and give them special things through out the day I'm in 7th grade

  5. I used to be kind of Freddie in the past but people kept telling me they don't want anything and I should stop. So I stopted even caring about my own birthday 😒

  6. All I want for my birthday is a holiday because my birthday is always in exam days oof I don’t even want a cake just peace 😂

  7. All these people ranting about how no one cares about there birthday No body has cared about my birthday so many times I don’t even remember my birthday sometimes
