If YouTube user teachusmore woke up one day, wanted to do something great with his 3-year-old son Oliver and decided on going to a trampoline park, it would have been enough. But, as you can see above, he did something even more overwhelmingly awesome. And, the influence for his super-special day of fun was very specific. As he wrote in the video caption:
"There's a scene in an Adam Sandler's movie, 'Big Daddy,' where Adam dresses up as Scuba Steve, an action-hero, in order to creatively make the boy he's caring for do things. Ever since I watched that scene, I've wanted to do the same as a father."
So, on Saturday July 21, 2012, dad became Spiderdad, and surprised little Oliver with a matching costume. "We played with his toys and jumped around. I also made him the promise of going to a trampoline park if he behaved well," he wrote.
A few days later, dad made good on his promise. The two got back into their costumes and went to that trampoline park. Then, he produced a video of them bouncing around at Sky High Sports in Houston, complete with Spidey-like graphics.
Now, we have a few questions. First, where is this magical trampoline park? Second, can we go too? Third, where do dads like this come from? He finished his explanation of the outing by writing, "I'm using the disguise of a super-hero to get him to do things and make him happy at the same time. I highly recommend parents to do this."
Alright, parents -- who's getting into costume next?
