As long as there have been teenage girls, there have been overprotective dads. The first cave man was probably like, "Ugh, ugh, fire, die." when his cave-daughter's boyfriend picked her up for their first date at the wooly mammoth carcass. So when Wisconsin dad (and cutie pie) Benjamin Schock told his teen daughter's homecoming date, "Whatever you do to my daughter, I'm gonna do to you." No one realized he'd soon make good on that promise.
Oh but he did...
Benjamin's wife Sharee was taking pictures of their daughter and her boyfriend before the dance when Benjamin decided to go for the photo bomb, jumping in and posing for the hilarious picture.
“My husband is a big-hearted teddy bear, so it was his way of being silly with a pinch of ‘I’m watching you. buddy,'" Sharee told Buzzfeed.
The picture was an instant classic, spreading smiles on Facebook and then Imgur, where it's been viewed nearly 3 million times. Sharee adds that her family is focused on having fun and being positive, especially since her husband is currently battling multiple brain tumors.
“We hope that above anything else this pictures shows the love and protective nature of a dad with his little girl, but in a playful and not-so-intimidating manner,” she said.
Great work, Dad! Now they'll never go past second base.
