Here’s one dad who has a lot on his plate: a set of triplets and two older boys. Raising just one child is a lot of work and can leave anyone frazzled. How anyone manages with five is one of life’s mysteries. This particular dad found a fun way to let off some steam.
The key ingredient was hip hop. Specifically, “I’m Sexy and I Know It,” from LMFAO, of “Party Rock Album” fame. This 2011 song was a big hit, topping the Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks. With 124 beats per minute pounding away, the song is an homage to the British band Right Said Fred’s “I’m Too Sexy” (recall, “I’m too sexy for my shirt…”).
This father of five’s little project was making a really cute and very funny music video, a parody of “I’m Sexy and I know It” called “I’m a Daddy and I Know It” (Mom did the filming, by the way). Dad has a great time showing how he deals with the domestic mayhem five children can cause but we also get to see the fun times they have. It’s a real workout: he trips on toys, juggles diapers, cooks, cleans, does the laundry, you name it. No music video of this sort would be complete without a ride in the mini-van, so of course they all go out to the store. From start to finish, dad’s facial expressions and dance moves are perfect. His five co-stars put on a good show, too.
But you have to see it to believe it, so we’ve posted this outstanding music video below. Chances are you’ll find yourself dancing along with someone who’s a contender for world’s best dad.
