Dad Goes Full-On Batty When He Gets Light-Up Sneakers for Birthday
A pair of kids' shoes brought out the kid in this septuagenarian.
Meet Ted Thorne, a Canadian man who's gone viral after his daughter posted a video of his priceless reaction when he received a pair of light-up sneakers for his birthday.
Thorne's reaction is muted, at first, but he goes supersonic when he realizes the kicks light up. That's because Thorne has wanted light-up shoes for about eight years and didn't think they existed for a demographic that doesn't drink Ssips.
Thorne also doesn't wear his new shoes out in public, out of fear someone may recognize him now that's he a viral star. And if you see a man wearing light-up shoes, then, yes, there's a risk people are going to do a double take.
