Martyn Hett is a 28-year-old from Manchester, England. What you can't see in this photo is that he's actually son of the year after he saved his mum's knitting career via Twitter.
Martyn told BuzzFeed that a couple weeks ago he checked in with his mum to see if she was having a nice day. "She came back to me saying that she was feeling a bit sad because nobody was buying her stuff," he said.
Not long after Martyn tweeted the picture of his mum's stall, a friend bought a glove monster from her Depop page.
One purchase turned into three.
Three turned into nine.
And soon enough, because Twitter is great, word quickly spread and left Martyn's mum, Figen, with a lot of work to do to keep up with demands.
People have obviously been heading to Figen's Depop page to buy everything.
And since the story has gone global, requests have been coming in from far and wide.
The reactions have been great.
Since becoming a viral hit, Figen has even bought a book to help her connect with her fanbase on Twitter.
"I’ve found the whole thing rather hilarious," Martyn said. "I popped over at the weekend to have lunch with her and she’d restocked her materials."
If you fancy logging onto Figen's Depop page to buy something, you might have some trouble because it's SOLD OUT.
Sufficiently cried out now? Me too.
