Do you remember where you were when you first watched DJ and Kingston Jierre Pryor? I was sitting at home about to go to sleep when I received an onslaught of texts from friends who know I c-a-n-n-o-t when it comes to adorable dads and their adorable babies. By that point, I was probably the 30th million person to view it. Fast forward a week (and 20+ million views later), and Denny’s ever-so-smartly scooped the pair up for an amazing Father’s Day commercial.
Before we go any further, I’m going to assume you’re either (1) not one of the tens of millions of people who’ve seen this viral video or (2) you could stand to watch it a seventh time, so:
Anyway. Everyone’s favorite diner Denny’s took the opportunity to relish in the deliciousness of this particular father-son relationship for a heart-warming commercial. In it, DJ and Kingston sit in a booth at a Denny’s “talking” about what’s going on in baby Kingston’s life. They cycle through what’s happening in his favorite cartoon and eat some bacon with some pancakes while they’re at it.
The commercial concludes “Booths were made for quality time with dad.” While that is happening, DJ and Kingston are hugging. DJ tells his son “You got me. You buttered me up.” Fade to black: “Happy Father’s Day.”
