Go Daddy-o: Video evidence of the best dads ever
MANILA, Philippines - Happy Daddy's Day! It's time to celebrate the main man in your life!
Now, not all fathers are the same. Your dad can be the man who supplied 50% of your DNA makeup; he can be the special man in your mom's life, without necessarily being your blood; or he can be the man, kin or not, who raised you as a child single-handedly. Whoever he is, what counts is that he dedicated his time and energy to taking care of you as best as he could.
Every dad has something other dad's don't--a special quirk or skill that really sets him apart. Fortunately, some netizens have decided to capture their respective dads' awesomeness on video for the world to enjoy!
Here's some of the best dads we found on Youtube:
Na na na na na na na na Bat Daaaad! This masked daddy has been freaking out his family on Vine for quite a while now, and every six-second video is both adorable and hilarious. No other dad does that gravelly superhero voice better than this one! (We're also particularly sympathetic to his long-suffering wife, who never seems to get used to this gimmick until now.) Here's a collection of his growing number of Vines thus far:
Darth Vader Dad
"Luke, I am your father!" is undoubtedly one of the most memorable lines in cinematic history. But as terrible as Darth Vader was during the original Star Wars trifecta, we all know deep in our hearts that he had it in him to be a good daddy in another place and time. Here's one daddy who not only dressed up to show us the possibilities, but got his cute kids to get in on it, too:
One time or another, our dads have embarrassed us in front of friends and strangers by pretending to be "hip" and "down with it." This dad, however, can actually pull it off–and how! He definitely has the gift of rhyme in him, despite looking like the most normal, most suburban parent in existence. The only thing missing is turning his normal car into a hydraulic bouncing Cadillac!
Bring your tissues out for this one. None of our dads are perfect, and some dads have bigger shortcomings than others. But despite the things that hold them back, good dads do what they can to be the best person for their children–even when these very children shun their affection. Fans of the film "I Am Sam" will get a similar vibe from this video, so if you're a sucker for the sentimental, get ready:
Best Worst Dad
There are good dads, and then there are bad dads. And this dad wins Grand Emperor of Horrible Fathers. Rest assured that he's just doing this to get some laughs, and no actually children were harmed in any of his gimmicks (especially the part where he throws the box against the wall–that was HEARTSTOPPING). Do you think his kids will grow up okay?
Finally, here's something to cleanse your palate from the previous daddy video. Remember when your dad finally got home from work, and you couldn't wait to greet him? This experience is pretty much universal, and fortunately, some of these precious reactions were captured on video. Behold the unadulterated joy kids feel once they hear the words, "Daddy's home!"
