Watch Dad's Hilarious Tactic To Win Musical Chairs at Daddy-Daughter Dance


The bond between a father and a daughter is a beautiful thing. While not everyone is fortunate to have a great dad, those who do will never really understand just how much of a blessing they’ve been given.

Dads do a lot for their kids, and daughters bring out sides of them that their sons just don’t. That’s why macho men sit down for tea, buy their daughters princess outfits to wear to Disneyland and put up with dancing.

There’s the tradition of a new bride and her father dancing together at her wedding reception, and for some the dancing began years ago. Daddy-daughter dances have become very popular for elementary schools and are a great way to recognize the father figure in a girl’s life.

Reggie Jeff from Texas is one of those dads. Last week, he went to a daddy-daughter dance with his two daughters, all of them dressed to the nines.

The evening was probably full of what all daddy-daughter dances offer: dancing, food, and plenty of photo opportunities.

There was also a game of musical chairs for the dads. What’s a little competitive fun?

But Jeff was no casual contestant. His daughter told him to win, so he would accept nothing less than victory. He was hiding a secret, though, that quickly became apparent during the final round: he’s a heavyweight fighter.

In the video that’s quickly gone viral, you can see Jeff and another dad circling the final remaining chair, doing their best to stay as close as possible to it. They’re cheered on by a herd of screaming daughters, all watching with anticipation.

As the music stops, the other dad quickly tries to sit down and at first it looks like he might have won — but Jeff isn’t having that. The two dads crash to the floor, but as they get up, Jeff picks up the other dad and throws him over his shoulder.

While carrying the other dad, Jeff picks up the fallen chair, sets it up, and sits down in it. He quickly releases the poor man and the two laugh, high-five, and hug it out all to the soundtrack of dozens of little girls shrieking with joy and surprise.

“When your daughter tell you to win musical chairs at the daddy daughter dance and if you have to take somebody out then take somebody out……..YOU WIN MUSICAL CHAIRS!!!!!!!” he wrote on Facebook.

Apparently, he didn’t know the other dad, and commenters joked that he wouldn’t be invited back, but the situation seems like it was very well-received if a little unexpected. The soundly beaten dad didn’t even look mad as he walked away, still laughing and looking shocked.

“Guys millions of views,” Jeff wrote a few days after the video started circulating. “I am overwhelmed by the response to this video. Thanks for all compliments, I am blessed with many great examples of what a father should be including my own. Thanks again everyone!!!”
