Ah Reddit. Most of the time you are the cesspool of the internet where thoughtful discourse and open discussion on the topics of the day go to die in a sea of cat meme’s and dick jokes. Every now and then though, if you are persistent, you might stumble on something on Reddit that is worth seeing and you remember why you keep going back there even though you know you are going to hate yourself for it.
For me one of the good times came today when I stumbled on this video from Chris Wylde. You may not remember Chris Wilde, but I’ve been a fan of his for many years. He was a figure on MTV many years ago and then he had the short-lived, brilliant, and totally misunderstood show, The Chris Wylde Show. In 2005, Chris gained some notoriety by pulling off a fantastic prank on the folks at American Idol when he pretended to be a rapping nanny. In short, Chris is a funny guy who doesn’t have near the fame that I think he should have based on his comedy skills.
That brings me to this series that he is writing and co-starring in along with his friend Darrell Britt-Gibson (you may know him from The Wire). The series is called Dad Holes and it is, in a word, fantastic.
This is a series for all the dads out there. Ladies, I don’t know if you’ll think it’s funny but if you do, great, join in. This is truly for all the dads in the world and the thoughts we have in our heads every day of our lives. These guys are out there saying the things we can’t say. They are a voice for us, the dad, the guy who just does his job day after day after day. This series is hysterically funny.
I saw my first one of these today. It’s their 5th video in the series and this one is for Father’s Day. It is brilliant. Again, ladies, you might not think this is so funny and guys, you might not want to watch these with your wife because she is going to be watching your reactions. She will be waiting to see if you laugh at any of this or if you decide to go the married guy route and tell your wife that this humor is juvenile and unfunny and ask her what time Top Chef is on because you can’t wait to see what happens this week because it’s Restaurant Wars!!! This is a bit NSFW because of language so beware. This is Dad Holes for Fathers Day
Dad Holes for Fathers Day
There are 4 other videos in the series and every one of them is worth watching. You can head to Chris Wylde’s YouTube page to see the other 4 videos. If you are a dad, or for crazy reason you are thinking about being one, you have got to see these. They are well worth your time.
