It happens. Sometimes baby will favor one parent over the other, or they go through phases of trading off who their favorite is.
In this hilarious viral video, a dad sets up an interrogation to get to the bottom of the question, “Who’s your favorite parent?”
Sorry, dad. You may not like the outcome on this one.
Daddy tries bribery and tough love, but he gets the same answer every time: mum.
The viral video comes from Mick Tippett of POW! Sound, a production company based in Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia.
Tippett employed Law & Order sound effects and lines of questioning that included promises of a pony, but this kid won’t crack.
Mom for the win!
The YouTube poster added this note after the video went viral, explaining how it came to be and the overwhelming response:
“G’day everyone! There have been a lot of questions about how this video came to be, so for those of you interested, here’s the brief. I shot this on the eve of my daughter Maddie’s first birthday. My wife had originally asked me to put together a photo montage of baby’s first year (yes, I’m ‘that guy’ in our family) but I opted to conduct an interview instead. The idea would be to do one every birthday, as a digital keepsake of each of her years on this planet. Wonderful in theory except that Maddie had other plans. The interview quickly devolved into something of an interrogation when I wasn’t getting the answers I so desperately sought.
As a final note, my wife and I are completely overwhelmed with the reception of this video. Thank you to all who have offered kind words and I’m glad so many of you have found a smile, laugh or warm, fuzzy feeling from watching it. She delights us every day and I’m thrilled to know I’m not the only one who fell in love upon meeting her for the first time. Even if I’m not her favourite!”
