Funny Vine Compilation Captures 3 Months of Saturday Mornings with a 4-Year-Old

This father is exhausted… in a funny because it’s true kind of way. Over the past three months, YouTube user and proud father of two, Bottlerocket, has been recording a 6-second Vine video every Saturday morning with his 4-year-old. Complete with annoyed look (it’s put on folks, he loves his daughter), obnoxiously loud music and rowdy little girl, the Vine compilation above is something of an ode to exhausted parents everywhere.

Bottlerocket (real name Tony) has actually been creating funny parenting Vines like this since February of 2013, accruing over 322,000 fans over the past year. The real viral explosion though is coming with the video above, which compiles the last three months of his Saturday morning routine.

Here’s how he describes it to BuzzFeed:

Every Saturday morning, my daughters go to dance class. My oldest goes with my wife first, leaving me home with youngest for an hour before I take her to her own dance class. She requests her playlist on Spotify EVERY Saturday morning. I started to film my reactions to her songs and dancing while I was checking my email and messages in the morning, having my coffee, or just generally trying to wake up on the weekend. Of course, I added the annoyed look to make them funnier. My daughter DOES NOT annoy me.

Of course, that last line and the obviousness of the joke hasn’t stopped people from leaving rude comments and assuming that he’s a bad father, but this is the Internet, it comes with the territory.

So check out the video at the top for a bit of a laugh, and if you want to keep up with Tony and his two rowdy daughters as they continue to have fun week-in and week-out, follow him on Twitter, YouTube or, of course, Vine.

    Did any of you guys read that he just makes the annoyed faces on purpose and that he does not get annoyed by his little girl?

  • Larissa

    This video should end with “Can’t deal with this? Don’t have kids”. Probably would be one of the most important PSA around. haha

    As a father of girls I think it’s clever. But I predict that at least half the people won’t read the last line of his caption and rant like fools. Or will read it and rant anyway… sigh.

  • Ralph Demilio

    Turn around and play with your kid, while she still likes you.

    And your prediction is correct!

    As I’m watching this video; my 3 yr old son keeps yelling “turn it off it’s hurting my ears!

    People do not read the last line let alone the first line or the middle line of much these days. As someone who works in a job where communication is paramount it really surprises me what people do not read. When they inevitably complain that they didn’t know about “X” policy or “Y” initiative or the change to “such and such” I have to point out to them that it was communicated to them – they just didn’t bother to read it.
