Apparently, little issues like birthdays and allergic reactions aren’t that essential
Late night time speak present host Jimmy Kimmel is thought for randomly surveying individuals on the road about all kinds of issues for his present Jimmy Kimmel Live’s “Pop Quiz” section. In honor of Father’s Day, Kimmel’s group went to an area farmer’s market to ask some dads how a lot they learn about their children. Unfortunately, at the very least for these dads, the “knowing” was considerably lower than the “not knowing.”
“In honor of Father’s Day, we wanted to put some dads to the test,” the YouTube description reads. “So we went out on the street and asked them to answer basic questions about their kids.”
Kimmel opened the video by saying there’s a stereotype that dads don’t pay a lot consideration to info about their children. It seems, he’s proper — at the very least for these dads anyway.
The first dad actually began issues off with a bang by not understanding his son’s birthday. Not solely did he not know the precise day, however he additionally couldn’t appear to get the month proper both.
“I’m guessing here and I’m saying March the something,” he stated whereas his grownup son nervously laughed beside him. Turns out, his son’s birthday is Sept. 1.
Next up was a dad who didn’t know his daughter’s greatest pal, regardless that he met her that day. It’s Stella, massive man. Her greatest pal is Stella. But that’s not the worst half. He additionally couldn’t appear to recollect her center title. That one stings a little bit extra.
Kimmel’s group then interviews an lovely father/daughter duo, however sadly, Dad appears to consider his little lady is already 7. She kindly reminds him that, though she’s about to show 7, she’s nonetheless very a lot 6 years outdated.
The subsequent man is definitely sporting a “Best. Dad. Ever.” shirt, which is superb by itself, however sadly doesn’t know his daughter’s blood sort.
“Sir, you’re going to have to forfeit the shirt,” the producer says. OK, blood sort is usually a laborious one, however the subsequent dad firmly solutions that his daughter has by no means performed a musical instrument when, actually, she performed the piano — for 5 years. That appeared to jog his reminiscence a bit. “Yeah, that sounds familiar,” he stated sheepishly.
Cue extra dads not understanding the title of their child’s faculty, allergic reactions, and their babysitter’s title, and the cringing that occurs as you watch. Here’s hoping there have been an entire bunch of dads who didn’t make the minimize as a result of they really know issues about their children.
At the tip, they went again to the birthday dad and requested him if, after being instructed the proper day, he may now inform them his son’s birthday. I feel you already know the place this one’s going.
“Thank you very much for making me look stupid,” he stated after forgetting his son’s birthday — once more.
“I think you did that all on your own, big fella,” Kimmel replied. Indeed, he did.
