One lucky Seattle Seahawks fans got the surprise of a lifetime from her son ahead of Sunday's Super Bowl XLVII.
Mike Harris bought 10th row tickets, airfare to New York's JFK Airport and hotel accommodations so that his mother, an avid Seahawks fan, could watch her favorite team.
"She came to my house to see me and my dogs, and the FedEx guy arrived and I signed for the package," Harris explained in the caption of his now-viral video posted to YouTube. "I opened it, and handed it over to her."
Shortly thereafter, Harris' mom gives way to shocked surprise, clutching her hand over her mouth and growing emotional in the touching video.
"What? What are you talking about," the surprised mother asks her son, holding the FedEx package.
"Those are Super Bowl tickets," Harris replies.
"No, no they're not. No way! We can't do this! How are we going to pay for this? No way," the excited recipient emotes before giving way to tears.

Harris decided to repay his mother who was unable to welcome the Seahawks back to Seattle in 1984 following the playoff game because she was pregnant with him. His childhood best friend Jesse is also joining him at the Super Bowl.
"Thirty years after she skipped their welcome home for my sake, I was able to return the favor in the biggest way I could ever think of," Harris explained in his YouTube post, which has over one million views since its post three days ago on Jan. 28.
The Seattle Seahawks will play the Denver Broncos at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey on Nov. 2. The match starts at 4:30 p.m. EST and will air on Fox.
"I'm excited to go see the game, but there was nothing more meaningful than to see my mom's reaction that I've shared in the video," Harris wrote.
