Thank God I grew up before everyone had a digital camera...

[–]craigthelesser 2534 points2535 points  (49 children)

If all my dumb shit kid stuff was available online I would live under a boulder like a slug.

[–]SpaceClef 781 points782 points  (35 children)

I had a Xanga in 6th grade.

That Xanga is long gone now, the blog entries forever wiped away, like so many other early 2000s social media.

Thank fucking god.

[–]Dropdat87 268 points269 points  (20 children)

Someone archived it

[–]SpaceClef 339 points340 points  (17 children)

I'm going to pretend I didn't read that evil you just laid before me.

Edit: Xanga says they have archives. I was surprisingly able to remember my account login, and it worked on their archive site, but it has 0 entries. I'm considering them wiped. It's been 16 years, I can't imagine anyone would still have those posts.

[–]grkirchhoff 303 points304 points  (8 children)

Someone does. Try running for office of some sort if you want to see who can bring it out.

[–]SpaceClef 352 points353 points  (5 children)

I hope they fucking do, because then maybe the world will know Thomas missed that shot in the free throw shooting competition, making me the winner, except the P.E. teacher wasn't watching and let him shoot again. And of course I missed my next shot.

Fuck you, Thomas. If I have to run for office so that the world will know your treachery and deception, so be it.

[–]LTman86 132 points133 points  (4 children)

Moderator: I'm sorry, Mr. SpaceClef, it seems we had a minor technical issue and the cameras did not capture any of your speech. Unfortunately, we are pressed for time and must move on to your opponent. Mr. Thomas, you have the floor.

[–]SpaceClef 111 points112 points  (3 children)

This isn't 6th grade anymore. I've learned from my mistakes. Fuck your technical issues, I'm taking that mic and if Thomas objects I'd be glad to give his colon a chance to formally lodge a complaint once the mic is firmly inserted into his lying, opportunistic asshole.

[–]david0990 32 points33 points  (2 children)

Thomas would get a book deal out of it at least.

[–]GetUpAndGoGirl 152 points153 points  (3 children)

Ikr. I remember when I was 8 I got stuck in a motherfucking doll house. Everyone was laughing like shit as I struggled to get out. If there were smartphones back then, It surely would have ended up on the internet.

[–]redditphaggots 73 points74 points  (0 children)

well, just searched for kids stuck in doll houses and there are many videos. You got lucky.

[–]Hi_Alch_Poop 8471 points8472 points  (178 children)

He was killin’ it tho.

[–]gizzardgullet 2700 points2701 points  (144 children)

Yeah why can kids dance so good all of a sudden? What caused this?

[–]Walnut156 2667 points2668 points  (96 children)

That dance was just added to fortnite and the little arm pump thing he did as well, I'm not saying fortnite is teaching kids to dance suddenly but I mean fortnite.

[–]Alarid 658 points659 points  (22 children)

And now even you can learn how to dance in just one Fortnite!

[–]zer0w0rries 217 points218 points  (17 children)

This thread brought to you by Fortnitetm. Available everywhere.

[–]Cllydoscope 69 points70 points  (13 children)

yeah pretty much... xbox/ps4/pc/ios... screw android tho I guess

[–]bizzyj93 63 points64 points  (15 children)

Yeah when I was growing up me and all my nerd ass friends learned the better WoW dances. When my parents were growing up they had the hustle, the electric slide, and safety dance. Its just all about what you're exposed to.

[–]LiteralPhilosopher 30 points31 points  (6 children)

Ha ... apparently, I am exactly your parents' age. Which is not surprising, assuming the 93 in your username is indicative.

The Safety Dance, however — not really so much a dance. More of a gesture.

[–]beighto 100 points101 points  (5 children)

Fortnite taught my kid to dance

[–]GodOfTheGoons 39 points40 points  (2 children)

Nah, I'm pretty sure they learned from Naruto.

[–]LiverpoolLOLs 55 points56 points  (22 children)

And fortnite learned it from the goth kids

[–]DJ_Rand 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Didn't even realize it was added to Fortnite, I was sitting here thinking "this kid has found industrial goth music already, man, why couldn't youtube have existed when I was a kid!" Makes me jelly kids get to grow up with all the cool tech.

When does my cyberpunk dystopia begin, I'm ready for some body enhancements and to upgrade my sleeve eventually.

[–]Not_KGB 14 points15 points  (13 children)

In my day goths listened to goth.

[–]YungSnuggie 14 points15 points  (12 children)

these are cybergoths to be more specific

[–]12bricks 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Before you had be bodily conscious enough to know which moves go when. Now there are lots of small 7 second dances that you can just loop

[–]MoonpieSonata 67 points68 points  (1 child)

there is nothing to regret

[–]ultrawill 21.5k points21.5k points  (561 children)

Little dude was getting down in the safety of his own home. Now he'll never let his guard down and enjoy life like this again. Ice cold.

[–]frijolin 8204 points8205 points  (275 children)

Notice how single children are way weirder than those with siblings. It's because of this. We were formed by the cringe of our brothers and sisters. Thanks to them, we didn't do shit like this at school or friend's houses.

[–]Flames15 2096 points2097 points  (50 children)

That's a sound theory

[–]IlllIIIIlllll 655 points656 points  (41 children)

Big if true

[–]Flloppy 158 points159 points  (0 children)

Here we go

[–]gas_station_slushi 210 points211 points  (32 children)


[–]ButtLusting 26 points27 points  (0 children)

I almost feel sad for the kid.

Whoever recording this really should have let him enjoy house moment, fat boi looks so fucking happy

[–]Hte_D0ngening2 129 points130 points  (1 child)

You merely adapted the cringe. I was born in it, molded by it.

[–]WestCoastBestCoast01 532 points533 points  (65 children)

Oh damn... am only child, constantly danced in my room alone.

[–]tmntnut 556 points557 points  (48 children)

I'm in my 30s and have a kid, I'm an only child and I still randomly dance around my apartment or start doing karate moves and shit, I also did stuff like that in school and at friends houses. It all makes sense now.

[–]DrEmilioLazardo 239 points240 points  (10 children)

32 year old only child here. I dance naked in the bathroom before and after my shower all the time. I also sing, loudly, whenever I feel a hankerin'. I make faces at myself when I brush my teeth to make myself laugh.

It's nice being free to be yourself. But yeah. I am my own best entertainment.

[–]Drezer 64 points65 points  (5 children)

24 year old with 2 older brothers here. Did all that shit anyway because who gives a fuck?

[–]n1c0_ds 99 points100 points  (10 children)

It's the one reason why I don't want to have roommates.

[–]Fez_and_no_Pants 202 points203 points  (9 children)

I have 4 roommates, and when I dance around the house like this, they join in or start beatboxing. You just have to conscript the right people.

[–]alphaweiner 51 points52 points  (6 children)

Nice. Love a good beatbox circle with the homies.

[–]thisjoshisposh 89 points90 points  (7 children)

I’m 24 (#4 out of 5 brothers) and will still walk around my house humming the James Bond song and getting into a shooting stance at the end, with my arm out to the side like Roger Moore/Timothy Dalton 😂

[–]Neh1se 45 points46 points  (0 children)

Finaly a thread where I can relate.

[–]philnich 29 points30 points  (2 children)

Hey I have 2 older siblings and I danced in my room alone all the time. The trick is to do it with the door closed.

[–]homonculus_prime 28 points29 points  (2 children)

Im an only child also. I just sat in my room and wondered why my parents wouldn't open their door and talk to me.

[–]NotJaquise 69 points70 points  (6 children)

Yeah but now I have no self confidence and think everyone hates me before even meeting me because of my older brother :/

[–]_FUCK_THE_GIANTS_ 16 points17 points  (3 children)

Damn. There's ups and downs to each side, I was an only child and always wished I had siblings because I think i'd be better at socializing with people, but I'd probably wish I was an only child if it happened differently. The grass is always greener I guess.

[–]RockHardRetard 74 points75 points  (10 children)

Can confirm, single child and am weird.

[–]Aitchbk 43 points44 points  (7 children)

Same. I grew up an only child till I was about 17 and use to talk to myself for many of those years. Not necessarily full length conversations but little tie bits here and there. I do it still sometimes while playing video games or just generally thinking out loud.

[–]HymirTheDarkOne 17 points18 points  (1 child)

I vocally tell myself off for not getting my life sorted out or saying something awkward to somebody as part of what feels like a daily routine at this point.

[–]dingdongthro 15 points16 points  (1 child)

In my 40s I can still spend a good half hour by myself living in some fantasy world I've just constructed in my head. It's fun.

Tbh, I loved being an only child as a kid.

[–]nLotus 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Have a sibling. Still weird.

[–]islamchump 29 points30 points  (2 children)

I was at a friends house one time in the 9th grade. He was a single child and both of his parents were at work.

We were on his family desktop computer just looking up recipes to make some food, he was flipping through recipes and MySpace. It's like 10am - 12 pm in the summertime.

And then he stops moving the mouse, looks me dead in the eyes and says, "islamchump, I need you to go to my room and watch the office."

I said why? Mind you this is probably the weirdest request I've ever had in my years of existence.

He looked at the screen and proudly said with no hesitation, discomfort, no sense of shyness ”i feel the urge to masturbate, so please go.”

The most logical thing to do would be to go outside and shoot some hoops for a bit. Nope, my dumb ass went to his room and watched tv while I hear porn blasting in the background.

Few minutes, the porn stops, and then I heard him creeping up the stairs, he opens his bedroom door, and he said to me, ”so, uhh, I'm done. let's make some food.”

I really didn't think about it but some of my breakfast that day included a residue of sausage when that wasn't in the recipe.

TDLR: I was at a friends house, he looks at me dead ass in the eye telling me his need to masturbate. So I went to his room while he blasted his porn on his family desktop computer. Then we made breakfast.

[–]SnuffFilmAtEleven 104 points105 points  (3 children)

On the flip side, single kids are usually more free and open with themselves because they didn't have asshole siblings hassling them for everything.

[–]mmmagnetic 218 points219 points  (18 children)

Dancing not only is fun but also fantastic cardio. I used to be a real "I can't dance" type of guy completely alienated from my own body, terribly out of shape, hated running and sports in general. Then I discovered cardio classes at my local gym and man, getting your heart pumping while jumping to the beat and learning simple choreography is such a joy.

Not only did it make me feel comfortable in my own body again, but rhythmic movement is such a endorphin rush for me.

I hope the primal joy this kid got from dancing wasn't destroyed by this video. I hope he keeps dancing like that.

[–]Super_Zac 43 points44 points  (7 children)

Dude my girlfriend got the Just Dance app that connects to the web app you can put up on your TV, damn was i tired after dancing a bunch of songs, especially RA RA RASPUTIN trying to do that Russian dance. I totally concur that it's great exercise.

[–]NovaEcho 591 points592 points  (77 children)

My mother did this to me. I enjoyed singing growing up, but her bursting in or turning the music down real fast kind of killed that. Now, if there's some possibility someone heard or they look at me like they heard, I just stop.

[–]Sublime7870 420 points421 points  (47 children)

Yep. Vividly remember my dad telling me “don’t quit your day job, ha-ha-ha” when he walked in on my singing in the kitchen. It’s been 13 years, haven’t sung in front of a single soul since.

[–]morningsaystoidleon 236 points237 points  (25 children)

I had a chorus teacher force me to sing in front of the class and tell me (in front of everyone) that some voices just aren't fixable. I'm a singer in two bands right now, my singing has been positively reviewed in a few local magazines, and I'm pretty decent (I'm no Sam Cooke, but I get by). All bad singing means is that you haven't practiced singing.

[–]Wcf1234 96 points97 points  (11 children)

You would think a chorus teacher would want to motivate their students when it comes to singing...

[–]DoctorVicious 36 points37 points  (1 child)

My old art teacher did that with one of my paintings. Used it as an example on what not to do. In elementary school.

[–]lifeyjane 19 points20 points  (0 children)

That’s awful. What a garbage teacher and a creativity killer.

[–]LanAkou 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Well, some teachers just aren't fixable.

[–]littlepaw1 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I got "Something wrong with the original?". From my step dad.

[–]RiffRaff14 71 points72 points  (0 children)

"Dance like no one is watching" just died.

[–]sir_richard_head 156 points157 points  (6 children)

Yeah, this is a great way to give a kid a lifelong complex.

Time for a school dance? "Nah, I don't like dances, I'm just going to stay home and play some games."

[–]Teapot42 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Tbf i did that and i never danced in my room.

[–]dick-nipples 986 points987 points  (65 children)

Nah. Just don’t put your shirt over your head and lock your door, like you’re masturbating.

[–]P10_WRC 483 points484 points  (41 children)

Don't fucking tell me how to masturbate. If i want to put a shirt over my head i will

[–]jus10beare 125 points126 points  (38 children)

How else would you keep your baby batter from getting your own eyes and mouth

[–]Box_of_Pencils 95 points96 points  (31 children)

You could aim into the tissue paper. Alternatively, I hear coconuts are useful and apparently reusable.

[–]-iamyourgrandma- 59 points60 points  (20 children)

I’ve heard old shoeboxes are also acceptable.

[–]thrwyoktoday 38 points39 points  (14 children)

Or you could stop masturbating all together. Like by breaking both your arms...

[–]1individuals 8 points9 points  (5 children)

Well, I can reach my penis with my feet so take that!

[–]JasvinderHere 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Or maybe your boxers?

[–]BagOfFlies 30 points31 points  (0 children)

like you’re masturbating.

Then he should have kept dancing while maintaining eye contact to assert dominance. Does this kid even reddit?

[–]Vintage_Kron1c 73 points74 points  (9 children)

But the darkness turns me on...

[–]Striiderr1 38 points39 points  (0 children)

Wee man was having a danger dance (similar to a danger wank). Caught.

[–]DonteFinale 23 points24 points  (1 child)

Dance like no one is watching your masturbating.

[–]BALONYPONY 7 points8 points  (0 children)

As someone who is no longer invited to the Xmas party.. I do not agree.

[–]HR_Dragonfly 123 points124 points  (6 children)

From Dancer to Accountant in one little fall.

[–]Modokon 43 points44 points  (4 children)

CPA here. This hurts. True, but still painful.

[–]exiledheretic 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Too fucking real.

[–]AFuckYou 18 points19 points  (0 children)

I know. This hurts .

[–]coffeeadaydoctoraway 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Damn. u right.

This comment hit me hard for some reason.

[–]andsoitgoes42 99 points100 points  (6 children)

As a very self conscious adult and, previously, an even more self conscious kid - it’s entirely possible this will stick with him for the rest of his life and will, without the proper tools and help, influence a lot of life decisions.

Hopefully he’s not as broken as I was and can walk this off. I sure hope so.

Walking in on your brother and making fun of him is one thing, though, broadcasting it on the internet where millions can see it, unless he’s on board with it, is another whole douchebag thing.

I hope he gets back to dancing. Those were some impressive moves.

[–]LloydTheLynx 58 points59 points  (0 children)

He has an older brother I’m surprised he hasn’t already done that

[–]Jargen 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Ironically, the best way for him to overcome this is to own up to it. When he's older, it won't bother him as much as it does now.

[–]OfferChakon 12 points13 points  (3 children)

My grandpa once told me "never make fun of the way a person eats, dances, laughed, or makes art because then they'll never want to do any of these things with you again"

This reminds me of that. :(

[–]ethday 48 points49 points  (15 children)

The best thing you can possibly do in this situation is own it. Keep dancing toward the camera with a big smile on your face knowing you've ruined their video because you're not screaming like a scared little girl.

[–]HalloweenInHeaven 25 points26 points  (4 children)

Or be embarrassed and stop, but replace the screaming with laughing. It's okay to be embarrassed and express that embarrassment, and I find it's far easier to own that than to own the embarrassing act in the first place.

[–]saltysnatch 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Poor kid

[–]cooterbrwn 1336 points1337 points  (8 children)

Dance like no one is watching, but check to make sure they're not.

[–]mith 178 points179 points  (2 children)

I was thinking the same thing. You can't spend a generation telling people to dance like no one's watching, then shit all over another generation for actually dancing like no one's watching.

[–]GooGuzzler 46 points47 points  (0 children)

Dance like no one is watching, and murder anyone who does.

No witnesses.

[–]DigThatFunk 9 points10 points  (0 children)

"Dance like you don't give a fuck if anyone is watching, which is good because someone probably is but honestly if they're at a concert and more focused on making fun of people dancing and having a good time then that says more about how pathetic they are than anything else"

[–]helloiisjake147 1219 points1220 points  (13 children)

The shit big brothers have on little brothers

[–]lphchld 444 points445 points  (4 children)

Kid can’t even Orange Justice in peace.

[–]just_another_fanboy 101 points102 points  (1 child)

It's a great work out...

[–]askmeaboutmyvviener 63 points64 points  (0 children)

It's also a great exercise move

[–]lukalap 16 points17 points  (0 children)

The shit my big and little brother have ON ME

[–]MrBayless 4291 points4292 points  (71 children)

Dude was just enjoying himself. All of us danced like idiots as a kid. It’s the purest form of joy really.

Poor dude.

EDIT: I'm not saying you can't still dance like a fool now, I myself got my swerve on while driving home yesterday. I simply meant "We all look silly as kids but it's because we didn't care. Putting this kid on blast is going to make him self-conscious now and that's a shame."

[–]Marmar79 572 points573 points  (19 children)

I’d say the good people are laughing with him and fuck the rest.

[–]DakotaDevil 148 points149 points  (9 children)

I dance like an idiot and I'm 40. This kid is going places.

[–]Beddybye 55 points56 points  (4 children)

37 here and I do the same. Even still utilize the hairbrush and/or mixing spoon as a microphone...

[–]303keysofacid 36 points37 points  (1 child)

can't say I have done the teeshirt over head technique though, that was pretty innovative

[–]Marmar79 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Same. My heart goes out to those who don’t,

[–]Scofield442 25 points26 points  (2 children)

I'm glad I didn't grow up in an age where internet was this rife. I did all sorts of silly crap. These days, kids do one stupid thing and it goes up on the internet lol

[–]punch-me 58 points59 points  (0 children)

Right? Thank goodness I didn’t grow up in this generation. My stupid shit didn’t get recorded and put online and was forgotten over the years.

[–]frisch85 62 points63 points  (4 children)

What do you mean "as a kid"?

[–]AKATheHeadbandThingy 43 points44 points  (3 children)

right, was i supposed to grow out of bad dancing?

[–]Bangerbox23 104 points105 points  (0 children)

The kid is doing the right thing: never dance to impress, dance to express. Just let him be...

[–]DisaronnoInMyCup 1082 points1083 points  (14 children)

Orange Justice

[–]NCH_PANTHER 283 points284 points  (3 children)

Had a bit of the Hype in there too

[–]Triple-Deke 149 points150 points  (1 child)

It's a great exercise move too

[–]TurkishObama 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Fuck, he's good.

[–]thatdudewillyd 160 points161 points  (9 children)

[–]DJChupa13 79 points80 points  (1 child)

I'm jealous tbh.

[–]poopellar 21 points22 points  (0 children)

I know I wish I had my own room growing up.

[–]whodat947 84 points85 points  (0 children)

Ahhh, as kids we do the weirdest shit, who cares. Good for him!

[–]sendmeyourjokes 374 points375 points  (8 children)

That kid dances better than me, damn.

[–]Person_from_Nowhere 85 points86 points  (6 children)

Cause he can dance if he wants to

[–]Subclinical_Clam 49 points50 points  (5 children)

And he can leave his friends behind

[–]Cruz55360 79 points80 points  (0 children)

This was actually adorable until he felt embarrassed.

[–]whitelimo69 890 points891 points  (28 children)

Poor guy. Now it's on the front page of reddit. Little dude, if you're reading this, YOU ARE AWESOME!!! p.s. I'm 35 and I still do the same thing when my husband and kids are gone! ;) Don't ever stop!

[–]BearsBay 89 points90 points  (1 child)

Same. I can't dance, but I still do in the bathroom.

[–]26326312 64 points65 points  (8 children)

I'm a married, home-owning, working professional and sometimes I love nothing more than turning up the car stereo and busting out some sick raps to some classic hip hop when I'm alone in the car. It feels so good and I wish it was more socially acceptable.

[–]KillJackMarston 123 points124 points  (26 children)

Anybody have a link to this remix?

[–]kja2991 197 points198 points  (16 children)

[–]Twelvy 49 points50 points  (1 child)

Makes me want to dance like an idiot

[–]11b328i 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Never heard of this kid. I have watched several remixes now, and the shit is hilarious.

My favorite one, if anyone cares.


[–]SizzlingCalvin 8 points9 points  (0 children)

He's the original person who made it : https://youtu.be/fy2XDBbDrAs

[–]daddyscientist 89 points90 points  (7 children)

I danced like this one time when I was a kid and my dad caught me in a similar fashion. I grew up a little that day. I never danced like that again. :(

On a lighter note, little guy has a little bit of techno viking in him mixed with the Thomas the Tank Goths.

[–]Spin737 10 points11 points  (0 children)


Definitely conjuring Techno Viking.

[–]LargeDicedCarrots 74 points75 points  (2 children)

Not sure if I should up-vote for the cool kid or down-vote for the shity camera person.

[–]Amiolia 29 points30 points  (1 child)

I gave a down-vote. This shouldn't gain anymore publicity. The kid's got moves, and I hope he stays cool forever, but he can upload his own video of himself dancing when he's ready to go public. That video I'll upvote.

[–]pm_me_pie_recipes 1953 points1954 points  (158 children)

This honestly breaks my heart. I remember doing things like this when I was little and getting made fun of by my parents. It kills your self esteem. Kids these days should have the freedom to explore who they are without it being mocked and blasted on the internet.

Edit: Bullying does not build character. It changes your character. If you're lucky enough you get to grow up and find yourself again. If not you lose yourself. All we have is ourselves. No one has the right to take that away from us by blasting it all over the internet.

[–]Banfing 750 points751 points  (41 children)

The posting online bothers me. Bullied at home, bullied at school. Growing up with trust issues and low self esteem.

[–]Limitedcomments 261 points262 points  (36 children)

Like that lightsaber kid who got bullied out of school and ended up in a psych ward. So glad I wasn't a kid with this kind of tech around.

[–]Qscfr 24 points25 points  (0 children)

At least he can tell the other kids he was put in a Tony Hawk videogame 😕

[–]SpookyLlama 119 points120 points  (10 children)

I have multiple memories of asking a silly question or saying/doing something embarrassing, and it always ended with my parents or older siblings laughing at it.

And that's what I say when someone asks why I'm so quiet.

[–]U_allsuck 43 points44 points  (7 children)

Ah yeah, I can relate - my dad and brother used to rip the shit out of me and now my dad wonders why I can't talk to him and I'm not close to my brother... plus the difficulty in talking to people I don't know... it's all very damaging.

[–]SpookyLlama 25 points26 points  (6 children)

I love my fam and they love me, but there is definitely an issue with self esteem that can be traced back to being the go to member for embarrassment.

[–]PM_ME_FILM_JOBS 256 points257 points  (30 children)

His guard is going to be up forever. Person filming doesn’t even realize how much freedom they took away.

[–]gizzardgullet 71 points72 points  (3 children)

Would be a cool origin story for a super villain.

[–]GraeWraith 65 points66 points  (1 child)

It is the origin story of a lot of nasty news headlines.

I agree. My daughter is 5. If I ever walked by and saw her dancing like a buffoon, shirt pulled over her head, gyrating like a broken MIT robot, I'd sure as shit come in and pull my shirt over my head and do it even worse just to see if I could get her to laugh. She's shy enough as it is. She doesn't need a parent embarrassing her and making her self conscious in her own home.

The only way I'd ever record it is if she knew about it, and I would only ever show it to her grandparents - in person, looking at my phone. No sending it anywhere. Grandparents have this weird desire to put every damn thing on Facebook.

Yeah I fully agree, it's a form of bullying and its utterly soul destroying when you can't even do things in your own home for fear of humiliation. Before I went no contact with my toxic family, all of my childhood and teenage silliness, mistakes, mispronounctiations etc were fair game for ripping me apart at any frequent opportunity. It sucked and it will stay with me forever.

Bullying does not build character. It changes your character.

Wise words

Seriously, when I have kids. If I catch them dancing at all, you know I'm gonna jump in and start dancing like a maniac with them! I want them to know it's okay to be crazy and have fun. Be yourself

[–]Abbsynth 92 points93 points  (14 children)

To be entirely honest, if my parents ever did this to me as a kid, I would have been mortified. As much as the intentions are pure, the violation of privacy while I'm doing something very vulnerable (e.g. dancing like a madman) would destroy me. You seem super awesome, though. Maybe if you catch your kid doing this some day, consider just letting them be...

[–]BlunderSiege 144 points145 points  (2 children)

C’mon don’t put this shit on the internet. Everyone deserves to be weird when no ones around.

[–]Mezotronix 336 points337 points  (12 children)

I miss the good ol' days when people were able to have a good time and be silly without worrying about some slimy little prick filming.

[–]26326312 76 points77 points  (6 children)

I wish it were more acceptable to just let loose and dance like this, I bet it feels awesome. Guy filming is such a dick here.

[–]bfgotgame 42 points43 points  (2 children)

not just the filming, but posting it online too. The guy's an ass, what if the kid gets bullied?

[–]skybike 100 points101 points  (0 children)

Not cool to put this online, even if he agreed, too young to realize the consequences.

[–]YoMothaFlippin 203 points204 points  (20 children)

Cameras on mobile phones was a mistake

[–]pm_me_pie_recipes 101 points102 points  (3 children)

Do you remember how they marketed them when they first came out? There was a commercial with someone in a locker room and a celebrity walked in. So because they had a camera phone they could show everyone they saw that celebrity. It was actually marketed to be a creepy violation of someone's privacy.

keep dancing kid , don't worry what people think :)

[–]mastof21 42 points43 points  (0 children)

This is how people develop horrible insecurities about themselves.

[–]beefly 393 points394 points  (10 children)

That is not regret. That is a kid having a great time being a kid and some asshole posting his personal moment on the internet. The guy recording and posting this is a fucking prick.

[–]rinkydinkraggamuffin 34 points35 points  (2 children)

What kind of straight up, mean-spirited ball bag posted this online in the first place?

[–]marsupalami12 14 points15 points  (0 children)

No shame. We’ve all felt this way when the beat drops at some point. And if you haven’t, you should try it.

[–]vagueneutral 13 points14 points  (0 children)

I like how the kid is combining the cornholio look with the orange justice dance, bringing together generations, kid.

[–]autowolf 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Funny but whoever uploaded this is a prick

[–]FUZZ_buster 50 points51 points  (0 children)

I feel genuinely bad for this kid. He's going to be scarred for life and never cut loose like this again. It's a shame, really.

I've been there, little dude. Keep on rocking out anyway.

[–]kkfreak 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I danced like him once when I was a child, mother walked in on me and never stopped bringing up to everyone she knew.

Needless to say, I never felt safe in the comfort of my own home anymore.

Feel for the kid to have this published online

[–]CowgirlFromHell92 103 points104 points  (8 children)

I won't even dance like that in my own room because I'd embarrass myself and my ancestors.

[–]shaggy_macdoogle 11 points12 points  (1 child)

So glad cameras weren't readily available when I was young. My older sisters would have so much footage of me fighting invisible ninjas in the living room...

[–]RottonPotatoes 28 points29 points  (3 children)

He is the great CORNHOLIO!!

[–]enfanta 37 points38 points  (0 children)

This isn't regret, it's righteous anger. Let the boy dance!

[–]Myhandsunclean 26 points27 points  (4 children)

What an asshole parent to post this. He's just having a good time.

Make fun of him and have a laugh... maybe even film it... but don't post it on the internet. Poor kid.

[–]AdnanKhan47 19 points20 points  (1 child)

This seems more like an older brother move. And the voice at the end also sounds really young so I doubt it was the parents.

[–]Hankol 95 points96 points  (2 children)

what asshole parent/brother does that to a kid? I mean spying - ok, but actually putting it on the interwebs is super shitty.

apart from that, kid has moves. looks like he can already party hard.
