Dad Animates Episode of Dragon Ball Z Starring Himself and His Son
For his son’s ninth birthday, animator Robson Menezes put together an episode of Dragon Ball Z staring the boy and himself. They fight this anime lizard-looking guy, a bubble gum monster, and I think a man-version of Mew from Pokémon? It’s in Portuguese and goes on for way too long, but I think you’ll get the gist.
Blah blah hit points, blah blah anime garbage, blah blah dad loves his kid, etc.
This is one of the nicest things a parent could do for his kid, but at the same time, kind of a d*ck move to everyone else in the world, you know? This video acts as a highlighter for how terrible the rest of our dads were. Never ONCE did my dad even take interest in the cartoons and video games I loved, let alone create a world where he and I could inhabit them together.
All my dad ever did for me was RAISE ME UNDER HIS ROOF AND GO TO WORK SO I COULD HAVE A HOT MEAL EVERY DAMN NIGHT AND CALL ME AN INGRATE AND YELL.
But every dad has a different way of showing love to their kids. Some make Dragon Ball Z videos. Some play catch with ’em in the park. Some name them “Sue” so they’ll get tough or die.
Having your pa come up with a knife and cut off a piece of your ear is a part of every boy’s coming of age.
