Man stopped at airport with mystery Christmas present grandma told him not to open

Man stopped at airport with mystery Christmas present grandma told him not to open

LA actor Brett Gaffney almost got arrested at the airport and he's shared the hilarious story on TikTok.

A man claims his Grandma's trying to get him 'arrested' after getting stopped in the airport for a hilarious reason.

Watch below as he explains what went down:

Brent Gaffney - who is an actor based in LA - went viral on TikTok after sharing how his grandma gave him a very heavy briefcase for Thanksgiving.

The only catch was he wasn't told what was inside.

The Kansas native was told by his granny not to open the 'surprise' in the briefcase until he landed in LA.

"I was like, 'What is in the briefcase? It's super heavy'," he explained in the video.

"And she said, 'Just wait till you get there'. I was like, 'Grandma, I'm going to to airport, like I need to know."

Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents stopped Gaffney from entering the airport after they asked him what's inside the briefcase.

Of course, the actor didn't know so it ended up getting bleeped through security.

"So I go through security at the airport and the machine goes off, and it gets flagged as it's going through the conveyor belt," he recalled.

"The guy tells me what's inside it. And I'm like, 'Why did she?'.

"They said, 'What do you mean? You're bringing a briefcase, and you don't know what's inside?'"

Eventually, he was allowed in the airport where he films his reaction to what was inside.

The TikToker then pans to the camera to the suitcase to reveal - wait for it - a typewriter.

I bet with 100 guesses you wouldn't have got that.

"Who am I Tom Hanks?" he asked his followers, in reference to the actor's reported collection of more than 250 typewriters.

"Am I going to go to the park and...write a whole book with a typewriter?"

"Grandma's trying to get me arrested," he joked in the on-screen text as viewers were left stunned by the whole ordeal.

"I feel like the words 'I don’t know, it’s a surprise' shouldn’t be uttered to TSA, let alone in one sitting," one person commented.

"Hey, it's portable." another joked.

"Well now you have a story to write," someone else added.

In another video, he also filmed himself having a look in the inside of the briefcase, in which he found a random $2 bill folded inside a pouch.

"Oh, this is classic grandma," he said, explaining that $2 bills are special to his family.

"If someone gives you a $2. You don’t spend it, but you hold on to it because that’s a sign of good luck."

Moral of the story - always know what's inside your luggage folks.
