Dad Secretly Films Son Tossing His Carrots Into the Trash (VIDEO)

Carrots are not ice cream.

Today’s best viral video has to be this one posted by California dad Dan Chapman back in January.

According to an ABC News piece, Chapman, who is a regular with his video camera around the house, got into a conversation with his 4 year-old son, Kyle, about the carrots on Kyle’s dinner plate as he was doing a little filming. What ensues then is a pretty hilarious capture of young finicky eaters in their natural environment!

Kyle wants ice cream, dad says ‘Eat your carrots.” Things come to  a stalemate.

But watch the clever genius of Kyle as he immediately comes up with a sure-fire way to make everyone happy in the end.

“Close your ears and close your eyes,” Kyle tells his father, who obliges (sort of) and yet , lucky for all of us out in cyber space, continues to film.

It’s pretty charming to see the serious look on this kid’s face as he moves on over to the family trash can and works pretty hard to rid the planet of the uneaten carrots and noodles on his plate without having to taste another bite of that yuck.

And, SPOILER ALERT: Dad cracks up laughing right in the middle of his son’s shenanigans…which just makes this video all that much better.
