This Dad Hacked Date Night and Won the Internet's Heart

Yeah, this dad nailed date night with his adorable idea to stay in and go out. Watch the adorable video and try not to laugh along with his surprised wife.

A dad's creative solution to date night is going viral. Because as every parent knows, sometimes it's impossible to get a sitter. And expensive.

Posting to the Facebook page LADbible, this father's video of how he surprised his wife with a brilliant night out, at home, has garnered more than 31 million views and impressed countless men and women everywhere.

In the clip, the wife arrives home from getting dolled up at a salon the night after she bemoans how they never go out. Per their conversation, she is under the impression her hubby has hired a sitter and they are headed out, sans their young child.

When he admits the sitter isn't there, she immediately looks crestfallen. No night out? But she's wearing the dress. And has makeup on! And her hair is looking way too special for a boring night at home.

Good thing that isn't what her man has in mind. Instead, he leads her outside to their garden where he has set up an inflatable pub!

"Best of both worlds; date night, and we haven't got to pay for a sitter," the proud papa announces. His wife is clearly delighted.

Inside the insta-pub is everything one could ever want out of a bar. Indeed, Air of the Dog (get it?) comes complete with nuts in bowls, and a bartender (er, kinda). Later, there's even dancing. And a smoke machine. And disco lights.

Applause all around for this creative dad, who wins date night, well, basically forever. Good luck topping him, dads out there!
