The video of a dad trying hard to make his kid laugh has gone viral as he pretended to be the one controlling the movement of a cartoon character on TV.
A woman, Alina Panduru, who shared the video on her LinkedIn page said the daddy should be given the award of the most creative father of the year.
While watching the popular Tom and Jerry series, the man sat close to the TV screen, as he simulated the movement of Tom's food.
At a point, the man brought out a straw and, sucked on it, syncing his action to the moment Tom's food disappeared from its plate.
