When it comes to comedic material, dads are a goldmine. From their “creative” fashion sense to their refusal to ask for directions, dads are often a cliche wrapped in a stereotype. And let’s not even get started on “dad jokes.” But is there truly anything funnier than a dad doing a DIY home improvement job? After watching comedian Jon Crist’s parody of a dad at Home Depot, we’re inclined to offer a resounding, “NO.”
Now, don’t get us wrong…dads are the best. They are storehouses of information. They’re handy…each in their own way. And they always have a solution for any problem you throw at them. Well, at least when it comes to fixing things around the house. But, even dads have to admit, sometimes their bravado gets the best of them.
In today’s Share Saturday video, Jon Crist does a walk through Home Depot and pretty much sums up what every dad is like when faced with the vast storehouse of tools, machines, and home improvement materials. From pretending to know what every tool is for to asking for something (anything really) in 5/8ths (because, “I don’t know, everyone just keeps saying fractions around here”), even the most humble dad sometimes has trouble admitting they don’t know how to do it all.
If you have a “handy” dad in your house, or at least one who likes to think he is, you’ll love this hilarious look at the inner workings of a dad’s mind when faced with a sea of home repair and improvement options. Just remember, if you end up with a kitchen sink in your bathroom, he really was trying his best! We love you, dads!
