Viral Video: Dad Teaches Son A Lesson About Wearing Tight Skinny Jeans

saggin-skinny-jeans

A dad unhappy with his son’s love of low-riding skinny jeans made a video sharing his extreme displeasure with the fashion trend and posted it to YouTube. The skinny jeans video has gone viral, sharing with the world images of the teen attempting to complete common tasks while wedged inside the form-fitting jeans, The Blaze reports.

The teen’s father, Van Hicks is heard throughout the video instructing his son to squat, spin and sit in the below-the-butt skinny jeans before he can leave the house wearing the super-skinny pants.

The skinny-jeans clad teen repeatedly fails at the simple tasks, prompting his father to state off-screen, “I know your nuts hurt,” according to the YouTube viral video. Hicks also laughingly tells his boy that he looks like he “stole a midget’s pants.” Van Hicks does not hold back when chastising his 15-year-old son for wearing pants he feels were designed to fit a 10-year-old, according to Gawker.

The teenage boy in the skinny-jeans video appears to take his fathers directions and comments in a light-hearted manner, laughing along at times. The skinny-jeans comedy video was posted on July 5, but did not start catching fire with viewers until the past few days, according to The Blaze.

After the massive response to the skinny-jeans video, the creative dad started a Facebook page entitled “Say No to Saggin’ Skinny Jeans.” The Facebook page has garnered comments from both teens and parents around the world. The majority of comments from parents applaud the viral video dad’s fun-loving yet firm relationship with his son and salute his willingness to find a way to get his point across about skinny-jeans in a manner which a teen could understand.

    This is hilarious. You can tell by the sons laughing that his father is not abusive or angry, but just stating obvious facts and teasing his kid. This is funny. and his kid laughing the whole time thought it was funny too, clearly.

  2. Lou Ann Warren

    May be funny to some, but I find this type of dressing ridiculous. He can't even do normal stuff because his pants are so tight and I absolutely hate seeing some kids butt or underwear staring me in the face.

  3. Maggie Neff

    I don't like the way the dad handled this. I wouldn't talk to anyone in this way. I don't think it's funny at all.

  4. Terri Cole

    People should be able to wear whatever they want this is so wrong to humiliate your own son for being an individual different from other people then the so called parent posts this video online to humiliate his son in front of the whole world this is why so many people have mental problems because parents like this one is not understanding

  5. Melinda Denise McCoy

    What a horrible thing to post on any website! I don't think it was in the least bit funny! If you didn't want your kid wearing them…why did you buy them? Keep this crap to yourself…No one else really cares!

  6. Emily Harckum-Bennett

    If his son felt so huliliated why was he laughing the whole time? Nobody scolded him for being different it was just innocent teasing. THE KID WAS LAUGHING TOO!!!

  7. Emily Harckum-Bennett

    Some ppl have playful relationships with their parents, and other kids grow up to hate their parents for not getting any attention. And I tell you what, NO Peopme should NOT be able to wear what they want, if I let my 15 to daughter wear whatever she wanted….to say I would be a bad mother would be a gross understatement.

  8. Rey White

    The son was probably laughing out of nervousness. Regardless, the father sounds like a bully. I don't think that's the way to talk to his son about wearing tight clothing. I saw other children in the house walking around. I would have felt humiliated if my father made a spectacle out of me in front of my siblings by filming the incident and then putting it on You Tube. What's the point?

  9. Tellea Smith

    How do you know the dad bought them? Honestly if he is almost 16 chances are he bought them himself, teens do most there own shopping anyway. Honestly, sometimes its good old embarrassment that makes a child see

  10. Tellea Smith

    I think this was a effective and creative way to get a child's attention saying hey this is not appropriate nor tolerated I applaud this dad.

  11. Danielle Carroll Yancey

    here's my Question….who bought the pants for him to begin with….apparently not the dad….I think mom needs to be in the video also…

  12. Cathy Miller

    He is not different from other people, he is a follower following the trend of his peers. Individuals start trends, individuals have their own sense of style. The dad did the right thing, showing how unpractical the tight jeans are. Humiliation is not why so many people have mental problems or is the cause of mental problems.

    Tight pants were in in the 60s. They were real uncomfortable. I didn't realize how goofy they looked until they made a comeback.

  14. Emily Harckum-Bennett

    Terri: it looks like you are not a parent. as I sd earlier, teenagers absolutely should not be able to wear whatever they want, what are you thinking??? If I let my 15 yo daughter wear "whatever she wants to wear" it would be NEGLECT. You should see the crap she tries to get.out of the house in!!! MY parents never let me wear "whatever I want" and thank god for that, bc the tiny pieces of material I wanted to wear like the popular girls did, would have just gotten me the same reputation that they did. so, o

  15. Melinda Denise McCoy

    Parents are supposed to be responsible for their children. So what they do, say, wear is the responsibility of the parent. There is no one else to blame. Most of the teens I know (not all) are too lazy to work to even be able to afford to buy their own clothes. Even if he is buying his own clothes…he still lives in his parents home & his parents should be approving of any clothes purchased to avoid wasting money on what they don't approve of.

  16. Melinda Denise McCoy

    Tellea Smith While I do agree that in some instances, such as when a child steals, lies, etc…embarrassment is a perfect tool to prove a point…this youtube video went way beyond anything necessary to prove a point. It makes the father appear to be a bully…not a disciplinarian. Obviously, not everyone will agree with my opinion…but that's O.K. Variety is the spice of life.

  17. Tellea Smith

    Thats the thing they don't approve of his clothes that was why he was told to change, btw kids are crafty could buy those jeans at goodwill for about 2 to 5 bucks. I had clothes my parents didnt buy and they had no idea I had them. You have to teach your children whats acceptable like what this parent is doing. You can teach a child but you cant stop them. If a kid wants to drink nothing you can do can stop them, over control backfires. This means I feel was affective and creative, and gets the point across.

  18. Ken ServelloJr

    point is the kid looks STUPID. and the DAD did his JOB…..as a parent……he did NOTHING wrong

  19. Ken ServelloJr

    hm, maybe the dad should just IGNORE his kid, let him do whatever he wants to do……..MAYBE the kid might learn something right?
    lmfao.

  20. Rey White

    Actually, the father looks stupid. He's the adult and he's setting a poor example by making a spectacle of himself in front of his family. All that posturing is totally unnecessary. If he wanted to talk to his son about wearing tight clothing, he should have done so one-on-one in his bedroom or another quiet place in the home. A father's job is not to ridicule his son and display it online. The issue is this: When there is a real problem (other than wearing tight clothes) the son will not come to his father because he won't trust him to show discretion.

  21. Ken ServelloJr

    seems he made his SON realize just how stupid he really looked….. Who are yuy to judge? HIS SON, his RULES.If the son realizes his dad cares THIS much about clothes, it shows him he can talk to his dad about ANYTHING.

  22. Rey White

    The only thing he made his son realize is that he can't be trusted with important issues. If he's going to react like a neanderthal about something as trivial as clothing or style, then he can expect his father to be just as close minded about something really traumatic. Who am I? Was that your question (poorly stated). I am a retired teacher with 30 years experience. I have had parent conferences that would make you cringe with fear. You have no idea the pressures on teenage children in this country regarding their peers and their parents. I guess that makes me a judge of sorts since I've been made privy to countless issues regarding children and their parents and how they struggle to coexist during the most difficult years of their lives. Based on your grammar, you are obviously someone of limited intelligence. I suggest you reread your comments before posting. Did you make it through high school? I taught seventh graders who express themselves better than you have in your attempts to rebuttal.

    as a parent we need to chestise our children, better to learn at home,the problem is the father is being a leader , not his sons friend, its funny but also a reality, we dont want to see male booties all day in funky underwear ,,tough love will keep him alive and moving in the right direction, we need more stern fathers , keep up the great work dad ,love it LOL

  25. Katrina Shivers

    WHATS THE PROBLEM good old fashion parenting is great .so what he was embarrased he will live , my parents was always embarrassing ,Yet I made it raised my child who is now grown , no hospitals jails or instutions, God is good .with so many dads missing from the home why beat up on dad he is making a difference in his childs life,If u teach them at home the world wont have too

  26. Katrina Shivers

    my child was good at wearing other people clothe, I give them back ,tell that parent it wassn,t anything I approved of , yet it happened over and over, .children will always try you. I STAYED ON HER EVENTUALLY she got the message ,he didnt kill his son , just tring to teach him a lesson , no vilence required

  27. Tellea Smith

    unfortunately one on one talking really is not enough sometimes. They may think hey this guy is old and has no idea about current fashion. Yet showing the impracticability of the pants and making his see how silly he really looked hits home. A little embarrassment will not scare a child but may get there attention.

  29. Danielle Carroll Yancey

    Oh I completely agree with the father in this video. The father stated on FB that his bought them with his allowance.

  30. Maggie Neff

    Well, he doesn't seen scared of his father so maybe it's just the kind of relationship they have. I wouldn't let a child of mine wear something that absurd and I wouldn't let a daughter of mine dress inappropriately either,….but I wouldn't yell. I just wouldn't allow it.

  31. Debbie Fernandez

    It's about time,parents start making there children be accountable,for there actions andbehavior.Come on parents embrass the heck out of your child, make them live in a suitable society..No.. If An's or Butts about it.

  32. Leslie Matteson

    maybe dad humiliating his son in front of family and on you tube will make him stop wearing clothes like that. I mean come on he might as well just been wearing his shorts. I don't like this style with your undershorts hanging out your pants. I then the ones that walking around with their pants so low they have to walk like that have something shoved up their butts to keep their pants from falling.

  33. Ivy Jane

    This is often what is needed, to make them actually think they might just look rediculous.dad wants to let his son know how everyone else with half a brain will see him.he could have made him walk around outside.he was being positive, and it happened to be humorous as well.Good job dad.At least u care!

    High Five to you Dad! If more fathers would take a stand and make their children walk a straighter line, there would be MUCH less crime and much more self respect in this world. I would have gotten my back side beaten if I had tried to go outside like that when I was a kid. This young man should be glad all his Dad did was try to put some shame on his son in this situation. He should also be very proud that his Dad cares what his son looks like in public because it DOES affect attitude – you are what you wear. I saw Dad and son on Dr Phil and they both looked and dressed like very nice! Stay after him Dad – if you do chances are he will grow up to make you very proud!

    Skinny jean work If Youre Not Poured into them.
    Tight, circulation cutting clothing Is NEVER GOOD. Dads Right!!! He Does look like he stole the pants, and Obviously Dad is trying to Teach the teenager some morals. More need to follow example.
