Nothing can enhance the mood of a party quite like a raring round of Super Smash Bros. The chaos that breaks out in these free-for-all battles is bound to bring out the competitiveness in anyone, and there are dozens of characters to choose from, each with their own unique strengths and special attacks.

Those of you who own the Wii U version of Super Smash Bros have probably seen each character’s own taunting animation, but seeing a grown man perform them is nothing short of magical. While not as synchronized as this little Bruce Lee‘s nunchaku mimicry, this dad’s Smash Bros imitations are arguably better than the actual thing!

With already over 300,000 views since it was uploaded, it’s obvious that people are getting a huge kick out of this father’s funny antics. I mean, what’s not to love about a parent sharing in their kid’s hobbies, and running around acting like a complete nut?

While a lot of the characters’ moves are pretty much impossible to reenact spot-on, dad does a great job of improvising. Some of his best moments are…


…Princess Peach’s sassy parasol pose.


…Wario’s booty shake.


…Donkey Kong’s chest thumping and grunts.


…and his innovative use of props!


Looks like they have a really great bond. More videos from Nick and his dad appear to be in the making, so we’re looking forward to some more laughs from this silly duo!
