Get on up!
You’ve got to get up to get down, and this Seattle Mariners dad did just that, boogying out of his mind in a remote, nearly uninhabited section of seating in Safeco Field.
This man had his kids, a bucket hat and a dream, and that dream was to funk it the funk out in front of all 30,986 fans in attendance at this Mariners game—and funk he did.
Dancing Dad began his routine with some highly technical work, throwing out a series of blinding, arm-crossing moves of which this author does not know the name but will henceforth call the “Scissor Sister.” After several swirling Scissor Sisters, the man breaks it down with several facial expressions and Saturday Night Fever finger-points that nearly ride off the rails into insanity.
All of this is planned, however, because just when you think Dancing Dad is going to zig, he zags straight into THE GATOR, hitting the deck of the stadium floor filled with day-old hot-dog chowder and kicking his legs up like he wants it.
As you can hear, the commentator is loving every single moment of it, generally relishing in the moment as Dancing Dad kicks around in the relish under the seats
All the while, his darling little girls are grooving along, having fun with dad. The youngest of the two is hop-hopping away, presumably at her first major league game. The man’s older daughter on the far right, however, appears to be well-versed in dad's dojo of getting down and works some Travolta-esque moves into her routine.
The entire scene is a crowd-pleasing hit of mythical proportions and ends with dad cranking out one of the rustiest, crustiest robot renditions ever to grace a public gathering.
Bear in mind, Safeco Field has treated the nation to a man catching a ball with his beer and chugging the contents this week.
With that, I think it’s safe to say the Seattle Mariners might have the most entertaining fans in baseball. Way to get the job done, Dancing Dad and the Dancettes. Mission Funking accomplished.
