Ringing in 2012 - Butt-Slap Wars and Spinning Arms of Death

Rang in the New Year with my daughter and parents.  In case you haven't figured it out yet, I'm a wild badass. 

Pigtails gives a quick fashion review of her wearable blanket, then the midnight mayhem commences.

Note:  A couple people mentioned the vid' fails on mobile.  Sorry, you'll have to fire up your Apple IIe and watch it old-school.

Make 2012 count.



  1. I'm usually not a proponent of punching kids, but you smoked her! You guys have some moves, especially Papa.

    Happy New Year!

  2. I hope this doesn't sound too braggy, but that kid got whooped. Tore her up.

  3. Love the outfit. Amazing how crazy kids get when they are really tired. I went to bed and let daddy handle all the fun.

  4. HA! Best video ever. We did the Wii dance thing too at my moms and it was pretty awful.

    That piledrive was totally awesome. Been rewinding and slowing down that part of the video to practice on my kid.

  5. You guys (all three of you!) are adorable! And yup, you got some great moves going on there...
    My girls were with their dad and went to bed at 4am, whilst I was with a couple of friends, the parents of one of them and their cat. I was in bed by 1am. Total wildass here.
    Happy 2012 to you too!

    Spinning arms of death - YEAUHSS! My favorite part to watch over and over. Rockin' the new year! My request? You and 'tails need to post "the routine". :)

  7. Totally loved this...this is my kind of party! I'm coming to your New Year's party next year. :) And the music was perfect!!! I bought the Dance 3 game...then took it back. After seeing this it's back to the top of my list for Target this week!

    Thank you for showing us it's okay to be silly and post it on You Tube!

  8. @Army of Moms - You like my special sleeping pants?!

    @Christina - For max piledrive damage, be sure and tuck your daughter's head directly into the drop-zone. KA-BAM, YOU GOT SMOKED TINY CHILD!

    @Magic27 - Pigtails and I will tackle interpretive dancing next, ribbons and all. Happy 2012 to you!

    @Anon/Curls/Julie - We'll post up our routine soon, so shall it be done.

    @gr8spirit - No shame, daughter and I dance like fools every night. What's funny is when she busts those moves at weddings, awkward sprinkler and all.

  9. GREAT video! We love Just Dance. It has provided hours of fun and laughter at our house. The best is watching my parents join in on Rasputin. Time with grandparents is priceless. Pigtails is fortunate to have this video!

  10. Thanks Heidi! I look forward to the day I'll be a grandpa to Pigtails' kids and bust it to Just Dance v22.


Thanks for the note, check back for my response!
