Footage of a dancing dad fooling around while his daughter makes a thank you video for her teachers goes viral, but there’s more to the heartwarming clip than meets the eye.
Dancing Dad joins daughter’s arts and crafts presentation for virtual school
As first grader Delaney Jones filmed a class presentation from her kitchen in Beaverton, Oregon, her Dad entered the scene and began dancing to Uptown Funk with her brothers. The love and laughter-filled clip subsequently went viral, and the family—now in the limelight—have spoken about the challenges they faced in 2020 that you’d never guess by looking at them now. Scroll down for original video and follow-up clip.
2020 was a tough year for family home of love and laughter
First grader Delaney Jones likes to make crafting tutorials, but this time her family gate-crashed into the limelight. Dad Issac and brothers Hunter and Teddy appear in the background and chaos soon ensues.
The video was originally planned as a ‘thank you’ for Delaney’s teachers. However, after being uploaded to Seesaw, it quickly went viral from there because it’s such a touching scene of love and fun in the home.
What nobody could guess by watching the clip is that there’s more to the delightful little video than meets the eye. Earlier this year, both parents found themselves out of work and times were looking tough. Then, to make matters worse, first Dad Isaac and then Mom Jennifer contracted coronavirus.
At first, Dad went into isolation at an apartment owned by his parents, but then Mom and the kids called to say they’d begun showing symptoms too, so Isaac moved back home to help out.
Isaac says being crazy and goofy with your kids is something you should take advantage of now because they grow so quickly.
