This video has been floating around the internet, making tears of joy flow from people across the world. It's a video of a second grade boy named Eli, who's surprised by his dad coming home from a military deployment.

This was Eli's first day of 2nd grade — as you can imagine, he probably was a little nervous and excited, maybe even a bit overwhelmed on his first day. The day was just like any other, he thought ... until the end of the school day, when a "tiger" showed up to see the kids home from their first day of school.

The mascot for the Cuyahoga Falls City School District is the tiger, so Eli's dad thought that would be a great way to surprise his son.

Little did Eli and his classmates know, Eli's father — who has been deployed for the last year — had set up the whole intricate surprise to reveal his homecoming.

Watch it unfold in the video below. The kids get excited when the teacher exclaims, “Wow! I think we have a visitor. We have been talking about our tiger pride pledge, look at that.”

The video captures the moment when Eli’s dad kneels down in front of him and removes the head of his tiger costume. Eli, overcome with emotion, lunges toward his dad, and the two shared a tearful hug.

No doubt this moment will be a core memory for not only Eli, but all of his classmates and dad, too.
