Will Meyers, an American dad and well-known money mindset coach, recently shared his horror story on TikTok after he accidentally packed a beer in his son’s lunchbox, resulting in a call from the school asking him to collect his child. In the video, Will humorously recounted the details of the mix-up, explaining that he mistakenly included a can of black Liquid Death, a sparkling water brand, and a Guinness beer can in his son’s lunchbox.
The reason behind the mistake, as Will amusingly revealed, was that both cans were black in color, leading to the confusion. The TikTok video quickly gained attention, showcasing Will’s honest and lighthearted approach to the situation, and serving as a reminder to always double-check lunchbox contents before sending them off to school.

‘Whenever my son was born, the best advice I ever got was you know more than you think you do, but today is not that day, let me show you.’
Will proceeded to explain in his TikTok video that his son actually enjoys having the black can of sparkling water in his lunchbox because he finds it “awesome.” However, the other black can in the lunchbox was not sparkling water, but a can of Guinness beer.
