Not only is this man a husband and father foremost, but he’s also an avid funny video creator. Jordan Watson shares his parenting tips and tricks through a Youtube channel.Hailing from New Zealand, this dad creates tons of creative videos that get so much attention because they will definitely get you laughing.
He uses a special type of style, that other dads (or quite frankly anyone with kids) could relate to. Each of his videos has his comedic touch with a deadpan delivery. His style is parodies of “how-to” videos that are popular on the internet.
Watson is from Aukland, New Zealand who is a full-time dad, part-time landscaper, and video creator
His first video was just a goof he put together when he was left alone with his baby, Alba. The video is titled, “How to Hold a Baby” and is currently at 3.7 million views. And that’s not even his most-watched video.
In an interview with Stuff, Watson still can’t believe the video went viral overnight,
“It was just me cutting together, in my eyes, crap – just me being an idiot and thinking that one guy at work’s going to like it.”
He chalks his success up to,
“Every parent can kind of relate, and there’s so many people out there who’re aunties, uncles, they look after people’s kids… It’s just everyday scenarios with kids which has given me the inspiration for it.”
Jordan is always seen wearing his signature shirt and shorts or as they say in New Zealand, Togs
This video currently has over four million views. You will see Jordan offering his very own take on how to put a baby to sleep. He makes sure to lists and demonstrate the teqniques and advice to give, but with a deadpan delivery that only Jordan can pull off.
Some examples of this include, “The Hypnotist,” where Watson dangles a toy in front of the baby to lull her to sleep.
Another kicker is called “The Bribe Dad.” This is where you bribe the baby to go to sleep. You could say something along the lines of, “tomorrow I’ll let you climb the curtains.” That will sure convince them!
There’s also, “Method Acting,” This is where you pretend to be very sleep yourself. If you lay on the floor and pretend your asleep the baby will fall asleep too, Foolproof!
“The Dad That Doesn’t Know A Single Lullaby,” where Jordan mumbles and mishmashes his way through what might sound similar to some known Lullabies.
We all know the real star isn’t actually Jordan here
No, it’s his baby daughter, Alba. She is such an integral part of the humor, because nearly every time Dad tries his methods, they work. The little one lays down to go to sleep, and her comedic timing is perfect. Dad administers the technique, Alba listens, and then to our rousing laughter, she complies. Leaving Jordan to say,
“It’s never really that easy.”
In Stuff, Jordan had this to say about his daughter,
“I think if you take Alba the cute baby out of it, they’re not going to do very well – it’s definitely 99 percent her, 1 percent me.”
Many Youtubers are head over heels for this video, and it’s stars.
“How the baby could understand that he is acting?”
“This child should be the highest paid child actor!”
Another Youtuber wonders,
“I don’t know if that baby is just insanely intelligent, an animatronic, a paid actor or if the dad just really knows his stuff?”
If you’re looking for a laugh, look no further, because we have the video for you. Make sure you prepare to go down the rabbit hole of “How To Dad”. Watson has really recently been starting to grow his content into a channel full of hilarious videos. He posts videos about once a week.
