Stay-At-Home Dad & Baby Dance To Michael Jackson, “Moonwalk” To Viral Stardom.

Some of the funniest parenting moments we’ve ever seen took place while the baby was left at home alone with Dad. It seems dads’ desire to be entertained often results in the most hilarious father-child experiences! Take the dad in the video below, for example. Adam Ballard is a stay-at-home dad, podcast host, and was formerly a competitor on “American Ninja Warrior.” But– though he may be a fierce competitor– he’s not afraid to show off his silly side!

Adam posted the video below on Facebook with the caption, “when it’s just the dudes at home.” In the video, Adam wears his infant son, Miles, on his chest, puts on some Michael Jackson, and breaks into the greatest dance! But he isn’t the one dancing!

By manipulating Miles’s little feet and arms, Adam “teaches” him to moon walk and get down to “Beat It.” And baby Miles loves it! For nearly 4 minutes, Miles “dances” his way into our hearts; he doesn’t fuss once the whole time! Clearly, Miles is meant to be a dancer.

The video has gone viral in China and Adam says he’s gotten feedback on the video from around the world! He says that Miles is a pretty easygoing baby and they always find “creative ways to pass the time.”

Check out the adorable video below and share!
