As you have probably experienced yourselves during the quarantine, there was nothing but time. Ample time to be exact to be spent with our family members. And, that’s when things got creative and “challenging” for some!

I don’t how many of you are familiar with the video-sharing social platform called TikTok, but in the last two years has been extremely popular, especially for the challenges that the members usually do. The internet and YouTube are full of video compilations showing people participating in the ever-current challenge.

Our story is about the Blinding Lights challenge videos on TikTok featuring The Weeknd’s hit tune. And, particularly one viral video, showing a dad and his two sons, making their own special choreography.

The McFarlands, as they are known for their awfully popular TikTok channel, are a family from Louisville, Kentucky, which is really active on the app, and their funny videos in which the whole family often participates are usually viewed by millions of people.

In the Blinding Lights challenge, we see the dad on his phone, watching and assessing the “competition” when his two adult sons try to persuade him to participate too.

The dad seems initially uncertain but the boys motivate him by saying, “Dad, people NEED you!”.

It doesn’t take too much time until dad makes his decision and they all exit the kitchen “cheerfully”. We see them racing down the stairs.

And then, through the garage, they go out to the driveway where they start their fast-paced, energetic routine.

We can see that they have probably spent a fair amount of time preparing for the choreography as they seem to be really synchronized and flawless, and they dance having a bright smile on their faces!

Stay tuned for the grand finale, when the boys lift their dad into the air! We can obviously see that they are having a blast. And, it’s quite understandable as in times like these, when we are really physically “restricted” due to the strict COVID-19 measures, there is a need to make our lives as entertaining as possible!
