You know who gets a free ride when it comes to the internet? Cats.
All those furry little guys have to do is misjudge a jump or get stuck in a bucket and their home-video will spread like wildfire across the world’s social media platforms within days, spawning GIFs and memes aplenty.
Kids, too, have it pretty easy when it comes to having viral. Oh, so you’re under eight years old and you have something sassy to say about feminism? Prepare for six million hits on YouTube. So you got a bit doped-up on cough syrup and drawled some cutesy words? Internet fame is all yours.
One group that’s undervalued on the internet, though? Dads. Caring, hilarious, creative, thoughtful male parents just don’t get as much online airtime as their young and furry peers.
That's why, in honour of Father's Day, we've compiled a list of the best dads on the internet in 2015 so far. In no particular order, we bring you the following five legendary fathers:
1. The single dad who enrolled in beauty school to learn how to do his daughter’s hair.
Single dad Greg Wickherst , from Colorado, is the primary carer of his three-year-old daughter Izzy.
When he struggled (like many dads) to do her hair, he didn't give up or resort to a sloppy, middle-part ponytail. Instead, he enrolled in beauty classes -- and aced it.
Here are just a few of his creations. Post continues after gallery.
2. The creative dad who made a gorgeous photo series of his newborn.
Earlier this year, an adorable bearded dad went viral after he appeared in a series of baby photos unlike any we'd ever seen before.
The ridiculously cool baby photography -- by camera-wielding Polish duo Ania and Michal - involved creating a fake wall, attached to a real wall, that acts as a wooden floor -- and the result is astounding images that look like they're photoshopped.
Take a look. Post continues after gallery.
