When Austynn Samarco’s cowboy dad caught her playing loud hip-hop music in the house, he did what any sane fatherly figure would do – he started twerking his hips right alongside hers!
After the pair shared footage of their playful performance with family and friends on social media, they weren’t expecting more than a couple hundred views. But, the video took the Internet by storm when everyone went nuts over Austynn’s killer flips and dad’s comically awkward booty shakes!
That’s the power that this hilarious daddy-daughter dance holds over you. It has a way of bringing out the warm fuzzies, and making you smile bigger and wider than ever before.
It also doesn’t hurt that ‘The Carlton’ makes a guest appearance when you least expect it!
Joshua Samarco doesn’t look like the kind of guy who would do well in the hip-hop dance scene. But, after MKTO’s “Classic” started blaring in the background, this cowboy dad jumped right in and got busy bonding with his 12-year-old.
Austynn kicked off the dance party by grabbing her father’s hands and maneuvering herself into “daddy’s little twirl.” It was an adorable routine that she choreographed all by herself, but that riveting intro was just the beginning of the non-stop action that followed!
Like a typical pre-teen, Austynn was like full of energy and couldn’t stop bouncing around the house. Even after dad grabbed her by the waist and flipped her around in the air, she still had plenty of stamina leftover to perform her next gymnastics move.
Dad tried his best to keep up with his high-flying acrobatic daughter, but he was forced to back away when Austynn suddenly put her arms in front of her and lunged headfirst into the floor! That was something he just wasn’t crazy (or flexible) enough to do.
After casually pulling off a handspring like it was no big deal, Austynn and her dad teamed back up again and continued to wow with their cheeky performance. They father and daughter were nothing but pure sass as they whipped their hands around in perfect rhythm to the hip-hop tune!
However, Austynn couldn’t seem to stay away from the floor, and she took her flexibility to the next level when she popped down onto the ground and did the splits!
But, as soon as Austynn was back on her feet, it was time for this cute country dude to shine!
During his solo performance, Joshua busted out into some fast-paced freestyle moves. But, in a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment, he gave a cheeky shout out to pop culture fans by sneaking “The Carlton” into his routine.
The dance was made famous back in the 90’s by Alfonso Ribeiro’s character on The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, and to this day it’s still considered the gold standard of someone with no rhythm trying to groove.
When Austynn teamed up with him again on the dance floor, Joshua showed everyone just how much manly confidence he had when he started shaking his booty like no dad ever should!
This wasn’t the only dance of theirs that went viral. The pair gained popularity when dad shuffled his way into the frame as Austynn filmed herself groovin’ to “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)” by Silento. The epic surprise dance that ensued was enough to earn them a spot on the Ellen DeGeneres Show!
But, for both Joshua and Austynn, there was more to what they were doing than just gaining followers on social media.
The memories they were making together were worth much more than a 8 million “likes.” Austynn explained to The Bakersfield Californian:
“The best part of it all is the bond that we get to share when we dance.”
This fun-loving cowboy dad has certainly set a new standard for parenting.
