There is no shortage of dads on social media who will do whatever it takes to help their kid go viral.

And Twitter user @CaityMarie1423's dad is no exception.

Over 4th of July weekend, she shared a series of photos that revealed just how far her dad would go to help her achieve that perfect shot.

As a bikini-clad @CaityMarie1423 shotgunned a Truly hard seltzer on a beautiful lake (like you do), her dad offered to sacrifice his body to give her the perfect splash in the background.

You know, just to jazz up the picture a bit:

But instead of sharing just the final product, @CaityMarie1423 showed the images leading up to the splash.

And they don't disappoint.





And finally, the big splash.


You have to admit, it does look better with the splash. @CaityMarie1423's dad was totally right.

And it had the desired effect, as the series of images quickly went viral.

@CaityMarie1423's dad also became an instant icon.

And a new meme was born, of course.

So you've been put on notice, Twitter dads.

This is how it's done.


If you've got a great dad, you can tell everyone with this shirt, available here in a variety of colors.

But that doesn't mean I'm immune to getting woken up in the middle of the night. The worst way I can think of off the top of my head? The time a drunk guy wandered into my friend's yard and started banging on the window while I was trying to sleep. It was 3 a.m. The incident also gave me the fright of my life!

People told us about the experiences that yanked them out of dreamland after Redditor GratefulD_86 asked the online community,

I love food! Maybe a little too much. It's been an especially amorous relationship over this pandemic. And I know I'm not alone.

All of our palettes are tuned to our own personal tastes. And sometimes certain items and combinations of tastes can leave others less than enticed.

I've lost track of all the side-eye I've gotten when I declare how much I enjoy PINEAPPLE on pizza. I said it. I meant it. Fight me. Let's discuss who else has eclectic tastes.

Redditor u/CatVideoFest wanted to discuss the mixing of certain ingredients that don't leave the best taste in one's mouth by asking:
