There’s a lot of negative news right now, especially on social media. There are natural disasters that will break your heart, political scandals that will overwhelm you, and some celebrity or another doing something you hope your kids will never find out about. The fact is, more often than not, turning on the television or scrolling through social media feeds will leave us feeling a little less satisfied with the world we live in than when we started. After all this negative input, there are days we need a positive pick-me-up. Fortunately, it doesn’t take much to turn things around. In fact, sometimes all it takes is a quick video of singer/songwriter Jason Manns and his 11-month old son, Tripp, trying to beatbox to make the world seem like a better place.
Manns is a Virginia native, originally from Bowling Green in Caroline County, less than an hour from Richmond. And if that wasn’t enough to endear him to us, he’s also a talented performer who now lives in Los Angeles, CA, and tours nationwide. And while we definitely encourage you to support his music, which is an eclectic folksy-bluesy blend and well worth a listen, today we’re here to talk about his beatboxing skills. More importantly we’re here to talk about his son, Tripp, who may just have won the internet with this video.
As we all know, babies like to imitate adults – whether making new sounds or trying out new movements. So, naturally, when Manns starts to beatbox, what’s Tripp to do but follow along? The only problem is the pair’s inability to stop laughing. And once you watch the video, you’ll see why.
Needless to say, today’s Share Saturdays video is pure, unadulterated laughter therapy. In other words, if you’re having a bad day, just take a quick look at this video – and you’ll be feeling good for hours. Guaranteed!
