A dad mic’d up his son during hockey practice so he could understand what was going on with him – prepare to die laughing

Jeremy Rupke wasn’t quite sure what was going on with his 4-year-old son Mason during hockey practice. He decided to figure it out by mic’ing Mason while he was out on the ice – and proceeded to find out exactly what was on his son’s mind. Prepare for some truly hilarious content involving naps, McDonalds, and a mysterious old paint can.

Rupke took to Twitter to share a video of Mason on the ice, complete with sound bytes of his son muttering to himself throughout. “I mic’d up my four-year-old at Timbits Hockey so I could finally understand what the heck he was doing out there. It was… interesting,” Rupke wrote.

The video features quite possibly the most adorable 4-year-old you’ll ever see, repeatedly getting lost on the ice, suggesting everyone take a nap, complaining about his tired legs, accidentally entering into the wrong skating group, and needing to go pee. Oh, and he was also pretty dead set about taking a trip to McDonalds afterwards. This is all pretty relatable content for anyone who has ever been forced into a sports situation that they’d really rather skip.

The full video was posted on YouTube and it’s very much worth watching all six minutes. Extra content includes Mason struggling to get back up on the ice and inexplicably blaming an “old fat can…old paint can.”  He was also very hopeful when the bell rang that practice was finally over and declared that he’d get to have a “baby happy meal.”

Unsurprisingly, the whole internet fell in love with this pint-sized hockey star. Rupke’s tweet racked up more than 84,000 likes and many, many comments. Basically, everyone was here for this very hilarious, very pure commentary.
