Stupid Video: Awesome memories

Tagged as:

So, I was toolin' around in my Flickr site looking for an image to use for some wacky dumb project and I stumbled across the stupidest video ever.

It's a video of the Little Black Dog (tm) flapping her legs in the sunshine. But what's going on the image is not what makes this video warm my heart on a long cold day in early march. What warms my heart is the soundtrack.

Two-year-old Gaia, clearly sitting in a pool of water, is asking me to identify a bucket. And it is so important that she asks me five times.

Gaia: Is this the bucket daddy?
Is this the bucket daddy?
Is this the bucket daddy?
Is this the bucket daddy?
Is this the bucket dad?

Gabe: Yeah. That's a bucket.

Gaia: Why?
Why's that a bucket?

This is what the flip video was invented for people. It's also why I keep all my raw flip footage, even though there is more of it than I'll ever be able to parse. You never know what is the golden footage that will warm your heart when you need it most. Data storage is cheap and plentiful in this day and age. Roll with it, people.
