This weekend is all about the Fathers. Yup, it’s the one day of the year where we have to thank them for all the tantrums that they put up with, the money that they have lent us, and the 3am pick-ups they have done when we may be a little worse for wear. So dads, thanks for all that, and in your honour here are some clips of weird dads, best dads and the ultimate dad (not that you’d want him as your dad).
Steve Tyler and Liv Tyler
She was a gorgeous teenage actress wannabe, he was her father who thought it would be great to portray her in his band’s video as a shoplifting, stripping, faux-lesbian, teen-temptress who is every man’s fantasy. Hmm, not sure about Steve’s parental guide book. She turned out well in the end though.
Frank Sinatra and Nancy Sinatra
Father to daughter: ‘I’ll wait until the evening gets late/And I’m alone with you/The time is right your perfume fills my head, the stars get red/And oh the night’s so blue/And then I go and spoil it all, by saying something stupid Like: I love you(I love you, I love you,...)’ ‘nough said.
The most regular dad on telly. Whenever you want him for advice he’ll pop up…on Neighbours, the OC, Ugly Betty…
Well why not. Sometimes two is better than one. Especially when one is trendy and the other is sensible…
The Ultimate dad
He would choose beer over you, would rather watch telly than take you anywhere, will always say the wrong thing at the wrong time, will never listen to anything you say because he is thinking about food, but hell, because he rarely leaves the sofa he’ll always be around…kinda. He’s fat, yellow and you love him anyway.
