J.J. Watt Bought His Mom a Car for Her Birthday, Making You Feel Like a Complete Failure (Pic)
Right after J.J. Watt signed his $100 million extension with the Houston Texans, the All-Pro defensive end got on his computer and Googled “What do rich people buy?”
Apparently Google told him rich people buy luxury automobiles, because this week J.J. Watt bought his mom a car for her birthday.
What kind of car? A white 2015 Range Rover, which starts at $84,225 according to the Land Rover website.
It was a surprise, of course, so J.J. put a big red bow on it just like those car commercials that run before Christmas.
I’ve wanted to be able to do this my whole life. For all you’ve worked & sacrificed, you deserve it. Happy B-Day Mom! pic.twitter.com/oP1AWQwGwu

Yesterday Watt talked about the extravagant gift. This is what he said, per ESPN.com:
“Growing up, on TV I saw all the commercials with cars with red bows on them at Christmas time. I always thought to myself, ‘Who can do that? Who can just buy a whole car for somebody’s birthday or for Christmas and put a bow on it and drive it? Could you imagine if you could do that for somebody how awesome that would be?’
“My whole life my parents have made sacrifices for me. They’ve done everything. They’ve made it so my brothers have had opportunities for success. To be able to give back to her and to surprise her like that, and to see my brother got me a nice video of her when she first saw it, there’s really no better feeling in the world than that to be able to take care of your family, take care of those closest to you. There’s no better way to spend my money than that.”
So basically J.J. Watt bought his mom a car because J.J. Watt is an awesome dude who loves his mom.
It’s a shame the man isn’t interested in dating. He’d make quite the catch.
