Science has yet to explain why a teenager shouting about video games is profoundly obnoxious while a 60-year-old grandfather doing the same is hilarious. But does that really matter? Nope.

Heck, we don’t even care if this video—which hits every gamer stereotype and never reveals the round of Modern Warfare 3 supposedly at issue—is staged. Simply put: we want to believe.

Seriously, if we just watched an old man yelling at nothing, it’s even funnier than intended.
