Dad Face-Swaps with Baby in This Creepy-Yet-Hilarious Viral Video
Have you seen or tried face-swapping? If not, I'm sure a friend of yours has posted photos or a video to Facebook using the app that is creepy enough to keep you off the Internet for at least a week. Or maybe it's just people I know who are obsessed with it...
One dad has taken face-swapping to an entirely new level with a video of a "drunk baby." In the clip, the baby with his father's face assures viewers he is okay to drive, even though he's clearly intoxicated. Then he talks up tacos big time. A rendition of "Old Man River" is my personal favorite moment. Of course, let's not forget when the drunken little one starts heaving, burps like a truck driver, and almost pukes.
The entire time, the "dad baby," who is sporting a receding hairline and a mustache, is playing with a toy phone and keys, and wearing a pink Minnie Mouse T-shirt. The effect is half hilarious, half the most disturbing thing I've ever seen in my life.
The video was posted by the New York Post on Saint Patrick's Day, and has since gone viral with more than 240,000 shares and well over 15 million views. Most people think the clip is hilarious, but some have called out the dad for acting irresponsibly, insinuating he put the baby in danger because he was drunk.

"The ones who think the child is in danger, y'all understand no one was drunk in this video. He was acting... I guess he did a great job in fooling some people lol," one commenter said in the dad's defense.
As for me, I guess this humor isn't 100 percent up my alley, but I'm glad a lot of people are entertained. Did I mention I'm off tacos?
