Awkward Dad Has Dance Party With Himself While Son Inwardly Dies of Shame (VIDEO)

LOL 34

embarrassing dadI don't know this boy, but he deserves an award. He deserves the Most Tolerant Child in the World Award. Because the um, spirited little dance his dad is doing? Let me put it this way. If I did a dance remotely like that -- in public, no less -- anywhere near my 11-year-old daughter?!

Well, she would do one of several things. She would either 1.) run away as fast as she could so no one would think we were together 2.) run away as fast as she could so no one would think we were together, screaming in horror or 3.) faint, overwhelmed with humiliation.

But not this boy.

Nope, this boy just sits next to his be-boppin' dad with stoic resignation. Yup, that's my dad. Black socks and all. Sigh.

And make no mistake, this dude gets exceedingly jiggy with himself. Watch:

You see?! You see what I mean? I totally was NOT exaggerating. Now I know what that Gloria Estefan song was really all about ... it was a warning. "The rhythm" GOT this guy. And it got him good.

What would your kid do if you danced like this in public?

My mom actually did the Electric Slide in public yesterday. I just ran to the other side of the fair so no one would no we were related...

That was sweet - he was really enjoying himself. I'm glad the kid wasn't a total brat about it by running away or looking embarrassed. They must have an awesomely loving family dynamic.

my dad use/still does stuff like this. one day i meet my parents at the magic kingdom at walt disney world. i was looking for my parents when my dad whistled really loud. when i turned around my mom waved but my dad started dancing and yelling "katriena!! come dance with me!!" i turned around and went to the nearest bench and sat down. my aunt and uncle who were with them were all "what happen? why is she walking away?" my mom pointed to my dad who was laughing his head off. they figured it out then. i was 22/23 when that happen.
now days i dance with thim when he does stuff like that. if you can't have a good time and laugh at yourself then whats the point of leaving the house.

I think its cute how he doesn't mind. It is my right as a parent to be goofy in public with my kid. It's a family tradition of awkward embaressment haha

Eh, that's not so bad. Sounds like they were at some music event anyway.
