The internet knows what’s funny, whether we like it or not.

Keith Allen Bozeman of Reynoldsville, Ohio, did not even mean to go viral when he uploaded an adorable video of himself dancing with an infant in his living room. However, when your video is this cute and funny, people are going to flock to hit “like” and “share” whether you’re ready for viral fame or not!


Keith is a single guy with no kids, but he has plenty of experience with little ones. He’s got nieces and nephews he loves spending time with, and he’s also a dance instructor with Elegant Fire Dance Team in Columbus, Ohio, in his free time. One day while he was babysitting an adorable little baby named Shem he got a little bored and decided to make a video that highlights his mad dancing (and uncle-ing!) skills, and the result is a 58-second clip that got over 2 million views in its first few days online.

Keith captioned the video, “Reasons we can’t get paternity leave,” and it is straight-up hilarious.


Dressed only in his underwear, socks, and a front-facing infant carrier, Keith does a funny little robotic dance for the camera. What makes the video so funny is not simply Keith’s assertion that dads don’t get paternity leave because they’d wind up squandering it with living room dance sessions in their undies, but the expression on his face is priceless. Keith keeps a straight, deadpan face, and not only that ⁠— the baby does too!

“It was brilliant! The [baby’s] face cracked me up, Shem was so unbothered by the entire thing…and great moves dad!!” wrote one of Keith’s friends on Facebook. “I woke my babies up laughing so loud!” wrote another.

There’s something so funny about the serious expression on Keith’s face combined with the baby’s impassive, almost bored-looking face. It’s little wonder that this clip is heading straight towards meme territory. Sorry, Keith! You may not have meant to go viral, but your video is too funny not to share.
