A IT savvy kid used his knowledge to tackle the bane of every teenager's life - parents saying no.
Reddit user Brendan managed to hack into his parents' phones and apply a shortcut that meant when someone typed 'no' it automatically changed to 'hell yes'.
The whizzkid used the hack to get exactly the response he wanted when he asked if he could throw a party.
In a screenshot of the hilarious group conversation, Brendan asks: "Hey guys can I throw a party tmrw night?"
His mom replies: "HELL YES."
Puzzled why her refusal has been changed, she writes: "Wait.
"I typed HELL YES."
His dad chimes in, equally baffled, and his mum pleads: "Jim, what is going on?
"I am saying HELL YES."
Brendan, revelling in his success, simply thanks his parents for their permission, adding: "You guys are the best."
The image has been viewed on imgur more than 1.2 million times and Brendan has been applauded by teenagers all over.
"The joke has been done before but the execution was magical," wrote one fan.
