Guy Takes Dad To Japan After Girlfriend Dumps Him And They Make Brilliant Music Video

Break-ups are hard, there is no doubting that. Sometimes they're easy to get over, and sometimes we just don't deal well with them

One guy didn't particularly take it well when his girlfriend dumped him before they were due to go on a trip to Japan.

So, in retaliation he still went to Japan, and in his girlfriend's place he brought his dad - where they filmed a music video, in a river, to an ABBA song.

He posted the video with the caption: "My girlfriend broke up with me after planned a trip to Japan. So I brought my Dad instead... and made this music video."

Seems the absolutely appropriate thing to do, right?

Either way the duo has gone viral after the video streamed on Reddit, racking up more than 20,000 views on YouTube.

The video starts with the young guy stood in an ankle-deep river, with a microphone and suddenly starts singing along to ABBA's 'Mamma Mia' - definitely implying the guy has been cheated on.

As the video progresses you see the young guy dancing on the street to and stood, dramatically, in the rain.

Honestly, I half expected the guy to be miming along, but he really sings the 70s hit and a huge 10 out of 10 for genuine effort!

It's one of those videos where you think, I hope it was as fun to make as it was to watch.

We're not sure why this guy was dumped, but his revenge was great, a sing-song to ABBA that's what everyone needs.

However, definitely know why this guy was dumped - he gave his girlfriend a cheque for £5,000 to get a boob job, classy bloke.

Erik, 32, was left surprised when he was given the boot by girlfriend Lauren, before eventually deciding to take part in new Aussie reality show Back With The Ex in a bid to win her back with a romantic getaway in New York.

In a preview for the Channel Seven show, Lauren explains that Erik broke up with her via text after they'd been together for six years, while Erik admits that breaking up with her was the 'biggest regret' in his life.

In one clip, she also accuses him of 'controlling' behaviour in the past, and even pulls out the offending cheque for the breast enlargement along with a plastic surgery brochure.

Speaking to News Corp, Lauren opened up about his, erm, bold gift.

"One year, he gave me a birthday card with a cheque for AUD 10,000 (£5,500/$7,800) and in the envelope there was a breast augmentation brochure," she said.

Maybe not the smoothest move? He should try heading to Japan and cracking out some ABBA, at the very least it'll give the internet a good laugh.
