Daddy Knows Best
, Posted on 7/6/2012 by
Did you hear about the Connecticut parents who let their 5-year-old daughter swim with sharks on their vacation in the Bahamas?
Naturally, mom blogs and morning shows are beside themselves with joy as this incident has caused a larger debate on the pros and cons of the parenting philosphy equivalent of "YOLO."
But it seems to us this is a case of real life imitating web video art, since Steve Rannazzisi's character in Daddy Knows Best believed that letting his kid swim with sharks would guarantee viral video success.
The Daddy Knows Best video premiered in April, and the Connecticut YOLO family uploaded their video to YouTube in June. Hmm...coincidence? Seems the only difference between real life and fiction is that the fictional father at least thought to put his kid in a cage. Surely a cage would have made all the difference in the world, right?
Are you in the comments, YOLO family? Are you watching? Let us know! And tell us if you'd like to recreate any other Daddy Knows Best videos! Or at least, give us the exclusive on the footage you shoot of your kid visiting a strip club, okay?
