That’s what you get for bringing the devil to a birthday party.
Those windows aren’t made of plexiglass
One New Jersey kid had a birthday party he’ll never forget, thanks to the antics of the Devils’ mascot.
The mascot (creatively named “NJ Devil”) participated in the usual activities for a small child’s party and had the bright idea to add a little slapstick comedy by running into a plate glass window.
This angle captures the sheer shock on the faces of all the kids when NJ’s body check went horribly awry.
Despite the destruction, the birthday boy’s dad said the party was a hit.
NJ was great it was accident my son really did have a great bday still. Sorry that a parent posted the video with explaining. Thanks NJDevil.— Lawrence Chiu (@aznpimpmaster) July 14, 2019
Booking NJ Devil for your kid’s birthday party costs $250 for a 30-minute appearance and includes perks like a gift bag for the birthday kid and autographs for attendees. The Devils’ website doesn’t say anything about glass repair, though.
