Are This Dad's 'Moves Like Jagger' Embarrassing or Awesome?

The Short of It

A dad's treadmill dance to the Maroon 5 song "Moves Like Jagger" has gone viral.

The Lowdown

I'll never forget the time in middle school my father came downstairs to say hello to the group of friends I'd invited for a sleepover. He was wearing swimming trunks—it was winter—with knee socks and a too-small T-shirt. I wanted to die.

So on a smaller scale, I can totally relate to how another father's kids are feeling now that a video of him getting his groove on while exercising has hit the Internet.

David Greider posted a clip of his dad moves to YouTube this week, and since it has gotten more than 210,000 likes and has been shared around the web, I must not be the only person for whom it resonates. Or maybe everyone is just getting a kick out of this papa's lack of modesty while he gets down to a favorite song.

We don't know how his children actually feel about Greider's hip shaking fun, but we do know the dad himself is having a blast. You go, papa!

The Upshot

Now that I have children of my own, I'll admit I get a kick out of making them laugh and embarrassing them. I'll put on a song I enjoy and sashay around the kitchen while I'm making dinner. I might throw down with a running man or a lawnmower move. My girls giggle and say, "Oh, mom." But I'm pretty sure if I put my routine on YouTube, they'd move out of the country.

How do you like to embarrass your kids?
