6yo’s EMOTIONAL First-Time Reaction to Return of the Jedi (Video)

Posted by on May 4th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

The love for Luke Skywalker is STRONG with this one! We definitely underestimated the power of his love, and the impact Return of the Jedi would have on him. We were completely taken by surprise by his emotional reaction at the end. (Don’t judge: my wife couldn’t find the remote to pause it!) It was […]

Why Do We Even Celebrate Mother’s Day?

Posted by on May 3rd, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

So, the other day Buzzfeed emailed me and asked if I’d be in a video for them. They told me that I’d be getting drunk and talking about dad stuff. Which is new for me, obviously. So, I asked a more veteran dad, The Daddy Complex, to come with me and talk fatherhood. Nothing could’ve […]

How Did Parents Let This LEGO Train Track Happen?

Posted by on April 27th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

My house is a constant mess of toys. Sure, I may have indulged my sons once or twice with my own need for childhood knickknacks, but I love playing with them. My boys, I mean. And the toys. Both. Anyway. Sometimes, I get fed up and wish the toys could all disappear. All of them. […]

The Birth of Seth Meyers, Dad

Posted by on April 11th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

Hearing birth stories is always a treat. They can be harrowing experiences or hilarious 80s-movie style hijinks, but more often than not they’re from Mom’s point of view. And that’s totally understandable. Dads are support systems for what can only be described as one of the traumatic, intense, life-altering events a person can go through. […]

The Turkey Whisperer

Posted by on April 5th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

My kids have an unrelenting desire to see, handle and chat with animals. Call it an obsession or just veterinarians in training, these kids have been brainwashed by talking animals to the point that they think they have some kind of telepathic link to the animal kingdom. They believe it so much, I almost believe […]

Can’t Touch the Sand – THE MOVIE?

Posted by on March 30th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

We all played some form of this game as kids. It was the sand, the ground, the linoleum: “Can’t touch the _____” tag, AKA “The ____ is lava.” I got more injuries playing this crazy game than all of my sports experiences combined. Just imagine what it would be like if this game became a […]

Posted by on March 24th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

Alright. This is a tough, arbitrary list but the criteria the videographer used is fairly clear. That, and it just makes me feel like a kid again. Anything I can do to grab a slice of that feeling of total irresponsibility and free time, I’ll grab it. Enjoy a walk through our childhoods, at least […]

A Dose of Laughter

Posted by on March 22nd, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

One of the most magical things about becoming a parent is the recognition you get from your kids. A smile, a hug, their eyes lighting up, the way they look at you after they rip a loud fart — it’s all so extraordinary. This video is for everyone having a bad week, or in need […]

The Future Is Now: French Fry Vending Machine!

Posted by on March 18th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

Lots of us complain endlessly about the state of the world. There are so many things, today, that make absolutely no sense. Will my kids ever sleep through the night? Why don’t we have hoverboards yet? Who is this orange man running for President? Why can’t I drink my own pee? Well, maybe not that […]
