This teen tricked her dad into thinking she’s pregnant, and his reaction is absolutely hilarious.
As parents, there are a few things we don’t want to hear from our teenagers — things like, I’m failing geometry, I crashed the car, I’m getting a face tattoo, or a surprise pregnancy announcement. One dad heard that last one as a prank on Christmas day, and his reaction is the absolute funniest thing you’ll see this week.
A high school senior named Brooke thought it’d be funny to trick her dad into thinking he’s going to be a grandfather, and she decided to execute her devious plan on Christmas morning. In lieu of a normal gift, Brooke wrapped a pair of baby socks and presented them to her dad with no explanation. She then recorded him as he opened the “gift” and proceeded to look utterly terrified.
In the video, you can hear him ask, “Are you serious?” as he looks back and forth from his daughter to everyone else in the room several times, like he doesn’t know what the hell is going on. Brooke uploaded the video to Twitter, where it’s gone massively viral. It’s been shared over 43,ooo times and people cannot get enough of her dad’s hilarious faces. They’re already dubbing him the next viral meme, and they aren’t wrong. I mean, look at these. They’re comedy gold:
After the video started getting attention, Brooke clarified that she’s not actually pregnant. It was all a (very bad) joke she put together to fool her dad, and she had no idea it would become such a viral sensation. She tweeted that her dad was even stopped in the grocery store by someone who saw the video and wanted a picture with him. I guess no one can resist laughing at those epic dad faces.
As much as we like to think we’d remain totally cool and calm no matter what our kids throw at us, this is one of those situations where it’s impossible to know how you’d react until you’re in the moment. Her dad’s blatant shock is relatable because it’s totally genuine, and that’s part of what makes the whole thing so funny. Brooke’s dad is basically every parent ever, and we can practically feel our own hearts thumping as we watch him struggle to figure out what’s going on.
Luckily for this dad, the whole thing was just a bad joke. Now, he can pick his face up off the floor and focus his attention on more important things, like coming up with the perfect way to get back at his daughter. Watch out, Brooke. We have a feeling the payback will be just as hilarious.
