Kim also shared a clip of the virtual reunion between her and her father, whose hologram shared a heartwarming message on her special day.
YouTuber Jenny Nicholson added: "The Kardashian hologram is ghoulish and very bad but they say it's the thought that counts, and I do believe that Kanye's first thought was to raise her father from the dead, and that if the tech was there he would pay to do that for her birthday". While many fans were just as moved as Kardashian, comedians and Twitter couldn't help but find some humor in the gift.
Apparently, it wasn't the pandemic or social distancing or even the particularly divisive election cycle that broke this person, but rather the hologram of Robert Kardashian with a scripted birthday message for his daughter. "Kim's party next year", the network captioned the photo that included Abraham Lincoln, "Chubbs" and the alligator that chewed off Chubb's hand.
The comedy network wasn't alone with a new take on the birthday gift.
Calling it a "surprise from heaven", the reality TV star posted a video of the holographic birthday wish her late father had "sent" her way through his "genius" son-in-law, Kanye. "A special surprise from heaven". "It is so lifelike!" "We watched it over and over, filled with emotion".
