How do you sneak in some nap time while you’re watching over a baby? That’s a common dilemma among parents, but one dad from China has come up with a unique solution.
The video, presumably taken by his wife, has since gone viral and became part of a compilation featuring hilarious daddy fails as released by China-based site K618.cn.
The funny story has also been picked up by several news websites.
A DailyMail feature, for example, tells us:
“The exhausted man, filmed lying on a bed with his infant son, drew a pair of fake eyes on his eyelids to make the child believe he was still awake.
“The quick-witted father even put on a recording of him singing a nursery rhyme to help put the baby to sleep.
“The baby, thinking he still has his father’s full attention, is also filmed dozing off comfortably as the adult takes a stealthy nap with tissue stuffed in his ears as earplugs.”
Since being posted online, the video has gained millions of views on Weibo.
Other dads featured on the video also showed this careless man who accidentally popped off the baby mannequin’s head during an antenatal class.
Plus there’s this guy who was spotted playing video games on the computer with his son strapped on his chest.

Meanwhile, netizens are divided about their reaction to the video. While others laughed it off and recognized that these men are doing their best, there are also those who pointed out that this is just evidence that women are unquestionably far better caretakers.
One netizen wote:
“This is so funny! What a clever man. Many fathers would be copying him now.”
“As a mother myself, watching these videos makes me so nervous!”
A commenter also shared:
“This actually shows that men should be learning how to take care of their babies properly and not leave everything to their wives.”

Dad Helps Daughter Create ‘Rocket’ Project, Causes Massive School Evacuation
This is probably why you should let the kids do their own homework!
Sometimes too much enthusiasm can lead to epic fail. One over-enthusiastic dad decided to help his daughter create a rocket for her school project. Unfortunately, it was so realistic that people thought it was the real thing and called for a massive school evacuation.
The unnamed father revealed that his 13-year-old daughter had asked for help in making a Water Rocket for her school assignment. Although the teachers had indicated that parents were only allowed to supervise the project, the dad decided to unleash his "inner boychild schemes" and took over in the creation. Needless to say, his creation was so convincing that it could easily be mistaken for a real threat.
The young girl had only asked for help but her dad decided to take over the project.
