Bjorn Thorpe's nephew received a new toy plane for Christmas.
As the family gathered around the Christmas tree, batteries were inserted into the plane. It lit up and began making sounds.
As the three-year-old pushed the toy on the floor and flew it around the Christmas tree, it made the sounds of Muslims chanting prayers rather than a jet engine.
Merry Christmas, America.
Bjorn Thorpe snapped up the toy F-16 fighter jet from Amazon as a Christmas gift for his little three-year-old nephew.
However, as the family gathered around the tree and batteries were inserted into the light-up toy, the group was shocked to hear Arabic music as opposed to the rumblings of a jet engine.
Mr Thorpe said: “We put the batteries in and didn’t get what we expected.
"It sounds like Arabic chanting, which is pretty unusual
"We were confused on how this would happen.
“It’s kind of not the right situation to have this on a children’s toy."
In a video posted online, viewers can see the toy in action.
The little boy pushes it around the floor and flies it through the air with the sound clear for all to hear.
Nadeem Israr, the president of the Islamic Society of Whatcom County in Washington, explains in the clip that the sound that can be heard is a “Muslim prayer spoken during pilgrimages”.
