This 12-year-old British aspiring DJ’s rave went down the toilet.
Cael Bell organized an underground Dec. 11 party in his school’s bathroom, where all the attendees were offered a soft drink and a Cadbury Twirl chocolate bar, the Mirror reported.
The guest list to the bash — where Cael smuggled his speakers — included “all year 8 boys” at St. Antony’s Catholic College in Urmston, Greater Manchester, according to the outlet.
“Am I wrong for finding this funny … Well he’s home, I’ve asked him about it he never lets me down this boy,” the boy’s mother, Louise Bell, 41, a hairdresser, said on Facebook, where she posted a video.
Bell told the Mirror that she had to laugh.
“It has been a terrible year and I couldn’t be angry with my son for trying to spread some cheer,” she told the outlet.
“When I got the call, it made perfect sense. Cael had been up, dressed and ready to leave for school early that morning which was unheard of in our house,” Bell continued.
“He had the biggest smile on his face so I knew he had something up his sleeve,” she said.
“I asked him what he was so happy about and he told me they were having a rave in school. I thought nothing of it, I didn’t think for one minute there was any truth to it.
“But when I heard what Cael had done, from advertising the rave on Snapchat to actually pulling it off and even providing refreshments, I couldn’t help but see the funny side,” the amused parent said.
“Cael’s dad thought it was hysterical, he said, ‘Go on son’. We did have a conversation about whether or not we should be angry but how could we be?”
Bell said that even though school officials were impressed with her son’s efforts, they confiscated his gear because they “couldn’t facilitate such behavior.”
“In our eyes, he hadn’t done anything wrong. We would have been furious if the teachers had reprimanded him further, past confiscating his things,” she said.
“I could tell that even they saw the funny side too. It sounded like they were doing their best not to laugh on the phone,” she continued. “When we asked him why he’d done it, he told us school was boring and that they had nothing to do at lunch time.”
She added: “I wish there had been a Cael when I was in school — it would have been much more fun.”
