Dad Hilariously Dance-Bombs His Daughter’s On-Line School Video And We Can’t Stop Laughing

2020 will go down in history as the longest year ev-errrrrr. As we approach its final countdown I think we can all agree that we’ve had just about as much as we can take thankyouverymuch.

And as bad as it has been, every once in a while, amidst the joyless dark wasteland of a global pandemic and depressing newsreels, the internet gods serve up a shining oasis. Halle-freaking-lujah.

The latest gift from the gods? A video of a dad hilariously dance-bombing his adorable daughter’s craft tutorial.

Unbeknownst to him, his daughter just happened to be uploading the video to her school Seesaw app at the time. Thus giving her unsuspecting teacher a front-row seat to the best dance show in town. To which I am sure she is eternally grateful.

Mom, Jennifer Jones, decided to spread the cheer (and we are sooooo glad she did) and posted it to her Facebook page.

The 2-minute and 30-second video has gone viral garnering over 2.7M views in just a few short days. Which is no surprise, because if this doesn’t make you laugh a little too hysterically (hello 2020), nothing will.

Jennifer captioned her post with the words:

I was checking Delaney’s seesaw (app for school) and she often will send her teachers random videos wishing them well, or goodnight, or just talking to talk. 

Well…. I found this as a sent video from earlier today. I hope her teacher laughed as hard as I did….

How’s your distance learning going?

Ummmm, not nearly as well as yours is, apparently.

Like millions of kids across the United States, Delaney is homeschooling.

On this particular day, the first-grade student was going about her business creating an art tutorial when her dad decided to get in on the action. Scratch that. He WAS the action.

Delaney opens her video with a little music:

“So today we’re going to be doing some crafts. Alexa play Kidz Bop Kidz.”

As “Uptown Funk” comes over the speaker, Delaney begins. She starts off her project by using a unicorn stamp (but if you’re following along, you can use any one you want.) And her dad, who is quietly moving about in the kitchen, starts busting a move.
 
He starts off innocently enough. A couple of claps here, an arm wave there, a bit of a hip sway. But it’s obvious that this dad is just warming up. And as for Delaney? She is the consummate professional, completely ignoring the sounds of her dad in the background.
 
Delaney pulls out the pink and green glitter glue, and her dad pulls out ALL the stops. Well, most of them. Blowing kisses, shaking his booty, and sizzling his finger. Because HE IS ON FIIIIIRE.

At one point her dad yells out, “Ahhh!” and Delaney FINALLY acknowledges his existence. She deadpans, “that’s my dad,” and goes right back to her project. Clearly, this ain’t her first rodeo.

Her dad decides he needs to up his game. He’s got moves and they’re multiplying. He decides to bring in some reinforcements.
 
After all, it’s not a party without people. Delaney’s siblings get in on the action. While her dad swings around the toddler in the air, her brother starts photo-bombing the video screen. 

Up until now, Delaney has managed to keep it together. This girl is obviously going places. Her ability to stay calm in the midst of chaos is a life skill most adults don’t have. But everyone has their breaking point. 

Even Delaney.

“What is wrong with this family? I’m just trying to do a piece of fine art!”

We hear you Delaney, we hear you. With entire families cooped up in the house together for months on end, it’s damn near impossible to get anything done.
 
Much less a masterpiece.
 

Delaney quickly pulls it together and while her dad moves back into the background, toddler in tow, Delaney speaks to the camera (and her teacher, who at this point is likely rolling on the floor with laughter.) 

“Since I haven’t got to see you and I miss my teachers, I just want to do this for you to spread some Christmas cheer, you know that.”

Oh, you’re spreading the cheer all right! As for her dad? Things are getting wild and crazy up in the club. 

 
He’s nowhere near done. He’s “smoother than a fresh jar of Skippy.” Until he’s not. And accidentally swings his toddler up so high he hits the light fixture. Whoops. Annnnnd now he’s done.

Delaney merely smiles at the camera and keeps on going.
 
Jennifer ends her Facebook post with an update:
 

*update* Daddy thought she was just making a “tutorial” like she typically does. He didn’t know she uploaded it to seesaw and sent it to her 1st grade teacher!

People are absolutely loving the video. It’s received 56K likes, 11K comments, and been shared over 59K times.

With his hip-shaking, booty-popping slick moves, Delaney’s dad clearly knows how to par-tay. And have a helluva lot of fun making the best of a time that is anything but these days.
 
As we continue to navigate a world ravaged by ‘rona it’s important to try to keep things as normal as possible for our kids. And I can’t think of anything better than this.
