A Page out of the Cool Dad's Book

When you're a cool dad with a cool job, you can do cool things.


I feel like I'm gonna be a cool dad. Well, I thought that until I saw this article about a DreamWorks animator, Daniel Hashimoto, who made a bunch of cool  fifteen second YouTube videos featuring his three-year old, James.  He has his own YouTube channel, appropriately named Action Movie Kid which features James in a few impressive videos with special movie effects all put together by his dad. Here's a sampling of some of his videos.

First up, probably the coolest one of them all, the toy lightsaber.



Next up, a Batman-inspired grappling gun.


Three-year old James has a pretty powerful Lego blaster.



Thanks Daniel Hashimoto, now I'll NEVER be the cool dad.
