Although being a parent is already a tough job, most moms and dads have work to deal with as well. So parents are coming up with creative ways to cope with the demands of everyday life.
One of them is Japanese Twitter user Ken Kawamoto @kenkawakenkenkem, who has a son with a strong passion for trains. With this in mind, Kawamoto, who happens to be a Google software engineer, came up with a creative way to make his son happy and for him to relax at the same time.
Kawamoto recently tweeted a video of his son running a toy train along his back. While it looked like a new kind of game at first, it’s actually a genius idea to trick the young boy into effectively giving his dad a massage without even knowing it.
The creative father designed a T-shirt with a train track design that allows his son to play with his beloved trains, while he’s getting a proper massage as his son runs his toys across his back.
The shirt is white with a plain front, while the back has an illustrated rail network with multiple tracks, a handful of station signs, and even a pond. Kawamoto calls the garment “The T-shirt that gets you a massage from your kids just by plopping down on the floor.”
Each track has stations marked as “right shoulder,” “left shoulder,” “spine,” and “lower back” so he can direct the massage to the parts of his body where he’s feeling the most tension.
Netizens were amazed by Kawamoto’s creativity and left positive comments on the post.
Some of them read:
“This is the greatest idea I’ve seen in years.”
“You can play with your kid and get a massage at the same time? Awesome!”
“You’re a genius.”
Kawamoto is ready to offer his train/massage shirt to other parents, as it’s available online for 2,400 yen (US$22). It also comes in a wide range of sizes, from S to triple XL.
This isn’t the first time Kawamoto has designed a special shirt for his son. He previously created a T-shirt with rocks on it so his son could climb on his back.

Tiny Dog Chases Google Earth Car, Photobombs Street View Camera
This is probably the cutest and most hilarious car chase ever captured on Google Maps!
Google Maps is a great way to find the actual street view of certain locations and sometimes, to simply amuse yourself. After all, the camera has captured hundreds of people doing strange things. However, one tiny dog has gone viral after it chased a Google Earth car and photobombed several street view images.
The unidentified dog spotted the Google Earth car in Japan's Kagoshima Prefecture. The pooch was initially curious upon seeing the vehicle but immediately started giving chase. It certainly looks like the pup is enjoying the run as it photobombs every photo taken by the camera. However, some of the pictures also show the dog looking a little frustrated that it couldn't catch the car.

Man Buys Cheap Veneers And Ends Up ‘Looking Like Freddie Mercury’
The video is a must-watch!
There’s certainly nothing wrong being compared to Freddie Mercury. Who would not want to be like the late Queen frontman, right? However, that wasn’t what Chad Hunt had in mind when he purchased a set of cheap veneers.
The 25-year-old man from Nottingham has been looking forward to a friend's 30th birthday celebration in Newcastle that he decided to buy himself some “pearly whites” online. Unfortunately for Chad, he had a little too much booze in his system to realize what he was getting himself into.
