Dad Hilariously Recreates Every Selfie His Daughter Posts On Social Media
| Last updated
A dad has struck upon yet another classic way to embarrass his daughter by copying all of the selfies that she uploads to her Facebook page.
Seriously, when you become a dad do you get sent to secret classes on how to best humiliate your children? Well, they're paying off for this dad, because this is an absolute cracker.
14-year-old Riley Anderson from Vancouver, Canada, likes posting selfies online. Love them or hate them, that's pretty standard behaviour nowadays for teenagers.
However, every time she does, she has to sit waiting for the push notification to tell her that her dad has posted a similar picture to her timeline.
Her dad, 33-year-old construction worker Jonathan Russell has lovingly (sort of) replicated all of Riley's photos himself, with hilarious consequences.
He's got it down to a fine art, too. Every pout, every head tilt.
Despite his best efforts, he has failed in his overall mission. That's because his daughter just thinks that they are hilarious.
She said: "He's been doing this for almost a year now and I can't help but find it hilarious.
"At first it was a bit embarrassing, but me and my dad have a pretty funny relationship and are often making each other laugh.
"He's always making jokes and is really good at putting a smile on my face when I'm sad - so I find it comforting to see his comments now."
Aww, that's nice, isn't it?
Now she even welcomes the comments from her friends, who also wait with bated breath for her dad to weigh in after she posts a shot.
She continued: "It's become our thing, and even my friends find it funny too - they get excited to see his comments.
"It's definitely become a tradition and I wouldn't expect to post a story without him making fun of it with his own rendition!"
Oh, and it appears he's also discovered the app that turns him into a woman, too.
Jonathan explained: "I grew up in the 90s and we didn't take 100 selfies a day - so I think teenagers these days are pretty silly.
"I was aiming to be an embarrassing dad when I did it, and then it became a bit of a routine.
"At first it was just some light-hearted poking fun at my daughter - but now that everyone loves it, it's my thing.
"I'm definitely going to keep doing it every time she posts a selfie!"
Good on you, Jonathan. Keep up the good work, mate.
