A few days after her 40th birthday, Kim Kardashian shared a post on her social media page which reads: “Hologram From Heaven. For my birthday Kanye got me the most thoughtful gift of a lifetime… A hologram of my dad.”
The video shows Kim’s father, Robert Kardashian, a man who made a name for himself as part of the defense team for O.J. Simpson, speaking into the camera, recounting the time he spent with his daughter and family.
Robert Kardashian’s hologram was seen saying, “You’re 40 and all grown up. You look beautiful just like when you were a little girl. I watch over you, your sisters and brother, and all your kids every day. Sometimes I drop hints that I’m around.”
After asking: “Remember when I would drive you to school in my tiny Mercedes every day and we’d listen to this song together?” The hologram sang along with Barry Mann’s Who Put The Bomp.
The image of the late lawyer went on: “I am so proud of the woman that you’ve become and all that you’ve accomplished… but most impressive is your commitment to become a lawyer and carry on my legacy.”
The video concluded with: “You are the most, most, most, most amazing mother to your four beautiful children, and they are perfect. Keep doing what you’re doing, Kimberly, you are a beautiful soul. Know that I am very proud of you, and I’m always with you.”
But not before singing Kanye’s praise as well: “The most beautiful thing that I have witnessed is watching you grow your family. You married the most, most, most, most, most genius man in the whole world, Kanye West.”
The video received mixed reactions online. Some people found it heartwarming, while others found it eerily creepy.
Kim, on the other hand, found the video romantic. “It is so lifelike! We watched it over and over, filled with emotion,” she tweeted. “I can’t even describe what this meant to me and my sisters, my brother, my mom and closest friends to experience together. Thank you so much Kanye for this memory that will last a lifetime.”
