Kids Show How Traumatic Corny Dad Jokes Really Are In Hilarious PSA

"How many tickles does it take to make an octopus laugh?" Ten tickles.

A new video from Nickelodeon Australia sheds light on a phenomenon many kids know all too well: dad jokes.

Titled "Dad Joke Survivors," the PSA-style video features sons and daughters sharing their fathers' corniest one-liners... and their "devastating" consequences. One girl is now afraid of aquariums because her dad once asked, "How many tickles does it take to make an octopus laugh?" The answer was ten tickles. 

The video was created in honor of Father's Day, which is celebrated in September in Australia. As the caption indicates, it's really all about spreading an awareness message: "Beware of dad jokes."
