In the clip, the boy could be seen sitting on his gaming chair and wearing a headset. He then calls his mother to break the big news. When he tells his mom about what he did, she seems to be in disbelief. She says, “You’ve already done enough for me” to which the gamer says that it’s too late already. He then says that all of her school loans have been paid off and she has nothing to worry about anymore.

However, the mom still doesn’t believe him and continues to argue the logic. "It’s not a federal loan. I don’t think you can touch that," she says on the call. However, her disbelief transforms into shock when the boy names a person who may be concerned with the loans. "How do you know her name?" the mom says in shock. The development finally sets in and she realizes that her son has indeed paid off her student loan.
