How to Be a Dad

How to Be a Dad

Dreams Float

Posted by , under NOTEBOOK


This is, by far, my favorite video of those we’ve done with Kia.

My son Finn has become the grandest storyteller. When the other kids at school wrote little stories, most of them gave two-sentence answers. Finn’s piece of paper was two paragraphs of intricate detail. We share a love for imagination.

Also, the thing I’m most grateful for in the process of shooting and posting these videos? They’re like expensively shot home videos of me and my son. Priceless.

No balloons or seals or strings were harmed in the making of this video. Just my heartstrings tugged until they almost snapped.

Watch more Kia Videos with Charlie & his family.
Because Finn is cute. Period.

Get them while they’re hot!

    I seriously love this video. (Even though it made me misty eyed, which makes me tired, which means I’ll get nothing done the rest of the morning – – but still glad I watched.)

    Chocolate rainbows > chocolate rain. Discuss.

    And these spots are wonderful.

    I went on to watch all your Kia videos with your son, you two are just AWESOME! Love it!

    Pretty awesome. Not just because it’s branded content that gets dad.

    But because it’s a really great message and cool thing to do.

  11. Great message about making his voice heard.

    BTW, where can I find a waterfall that falls up in the Valley?

  12. Chris says:

    Now I bet there will be tons of big balloons soaring over cities soon. Nice spot man.
