Two-year-old Marty recently celebrated his birthday with a rendition of “Happy Birthday” from his parents and a cupcake topped by a single candle.

But when it came time to blow it out, things got a little tricky.

And when we say “a little tricky” we mean “very tricky.”

Marty might be the worst candle-blower in the entire universe.

Cannot. Stop. Laughing.

Lucky for little Marty, his parents stopped laughing long enough for Dad to go grab the solution to Marty’s problems:

A straw!

But when Marty got a second chance at his birthday party, the Michael Jordan of not blowing out candles reemerged.

Never change, Marty.
