So everyone one who knows me (or has read this blog) knows I have no trouble making a fool of myself. I’m pretty good at it (except on the dance floor… that, that I take as serious as a heart attack). So when the #DoTheDadDance movement started I figured I better start working on something other wise I’d wind up looking like that New Year’s Eve video where I went all Ham on Maniac from Flash Dance**.
For those of you who haven’t heard of the Do the Dad Dance campaign before, Al from The Dad Network started this movement to help raise money for Unicef (great cause and I’ve donated). I haven’t nominated anyone per say, but if you’ve read this consider it your nomination.
The rules are simple,
1. Dads, film yourself dancing to your favorite song, with or without the children.
2. Upload it to social media using the hashtag #DOTHEDADDANCE and then tag / nominate some of your dad friends to do the same.
3. Donate to UNICEF by visiting http://www.justgiving.com/dothedaddance
Unfortunately… Practice doesn’t make perfect in this dad’s case, and since its for charity to support children in need I figured I’d let my little man take the lead and if just follow him into the Dancing Hall of Fame. All he needed was a little Huey Lewis and the News and the moves started flowing. Worked out pretty well if you ask me…
“The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) is a United Nations Program headquartered in New York City that provides long-term humanitarian and developmental assistance to children and mothers in developing countries. It is one of the members of the United Nations Development Group and its Executive Committee.”
**FYI: Imagine me in a white v-neck and short running shorts and this video would be an exact replica of my New Year’s Video.
