If any of you “Regular Dads” out there are seeking an upgrade to “Cool Dad,” this is how it’s done.
Roman Atwood, who can safely be described as a professional prankster, uploaded this clip to YouTube on Sunday, and it’s already climbed to more than 2 million views.
Atwood specializes in the kind of stuff that an imaginative, hyperactive kid would dream up, and he’s apparently got the resources and wherewithal to pull it all off. For example, in this case, he obtained a semi-truck’s worth of plastic balls to fill his entire living room, transforming it into a giant ball bit.
While the stunt was clearly a hit with Atwood’s son and his friends, his wife was not as excited. When she was confronted with the scene after arriving home from work, she can only muster an “Are you kidding me?” But as the not-so-old adage goes, it’s hard to stay angry in a ball pit.
If you’re interested in a closer look at just how Atwood pulled the prank off, here’s a longer behind-the-scenes video.
Like we said: Cool Dad.
