Bazinga! Prodigy balks at Android tablet gift on Jimmy Kimmel: 'We're getting iPad for Christmas!'

Bazinga! Prodigy balks at Android tablet gift on Jimmy Kimmel: 'We're getting iPad for Christmas!'
The 5-year-old Arden Hayes was on Jimmy Kimmel again last night, this time blowing our minds with his knowledge of geography, countries and capitals, and the parting gifts segment became a perfect example of product placement gone wrong.

The host started handing the whizzkid a globe and he reluctantly accepted, but when it came to a Sony Xperia Tablet Z, Arden Hayes just pushed it back and said: "You can give that away because we will be getting an iPad for Christmas!" 

Fun stuff, though certainly not for Sony's PR team. Watch below, the Sony Tablet Zzing bit starts around the 5:10 mark, but the whole video is worth watching, be it only to learn something from the kiddo.

This kid just wanted to show off that he will get an iPad at Christmas time and failed hard not taking both tablets. Hard lessons, for stupidity need to pay! :D

Talking about greediness, he could take this tablet and save Santa's (parents) money. That was a gift, instead of taking the gift he was like: "Meh.. I will get an iPad at Christmas..." - And it is named as arrogance if you didn't knew! Anyway, he is just a kid, he will grow up. :)

Or he could just have let Jimmy give the tablet away to somebody who needed more than himself. Call it a charitable contribution. Also the kid is far from stupid and is probably more intelligent than half the people who roam this site repeating the same mess over and over again.

Yes, I agree with you. Also I didn't meant that kid is stupid, I just want to say that in my opinion his current action was not wise.

the kid is stupid. he could of taken the tablet, instead of being a snobby little boy. how was he suppose to know which tablet he would like best? he couldve taken the tablet and sold it for cheap or given it away to a family who could benefit from having a tablet. like me, i dont have a personal computer at home... so if jimmy kimmel were to give me a free tablet, i would be super excited. i also wouldnt responded with such nonsense. i hope this kid doesnt get an ipad for xmas. not only because he needs to learn some manners but also because hes five.

Yea, but these kids that get fame early and then no one cares when they're no longer cute and adorable kinda end up in a bad place. I just hope his parents take the right paths while raising him because you are right, the arrogance is very apparent even now.

Stupid kid. I'd still take it even if I already have an iPad Air, Nexus 10, Note 10 (2013), Gpad 8.0, etc. lol

I was in rush to reply. I don't know how smart is kid, but in my opinion much more wise decision was to take Android tablet too.

Sad, you guys are really calling this 5 year old kid "stupid" why... because he doesn't share your love for Android? Let it go guys!

He's five years old. It happens. Hell, during Christmas one time my oldest brother gave us a movie we already had (he didn't know it) and I of course blurted out the enlightening truth of the matter. I felt so bad when my mom pointed out what I had done. This kid will probably facepalm in the coming years when he sees this video again. Not that he *really* did anything wrong, but he'll feel like a jerk. If he were older, like 13, and said this though, I'd laugh if the little jerk didn't get an iPad for Christmas after all.
