This Boy Never Saw His Dad As An Inspiration ... Until He Found Out His Big Secret

It shouldn't take a seven-minute video to make us appreciate what our parents do for us, but we've found one anyway.

The clip above is from Viddsee, a company in Asia that curates and shares powerful short films. In this one, titled "Gift," a son feels neglected by his father for most of his childhood. But when he grows up, he learns his dad's cold exterior was hiding a soft (dare we say, funny?) interior all along.

It's a simple reminder to not judge a book -- or a dad -- by the cover.
