Late last week, Twitter user @coolcat_collin (Collin) posted a few photos of his dad, who is pursuing a modeling career. The accompanying text was earnest and supportive.

“My dad is 45, pursuing a modeling career, and I’ve never seen him happier,” Collin’s tweet read. “He told me he’s just waiting for a chance to blow up. So, Twitter, meet my dad,” he wrote alongside four photos of a very attractive man.”

The tweet quickly gained traction and, from there, people started posting photos of their own “dads” who also are “pursuing modeling careers.” The meme uses the same caption that the original poster wrote alongside photos of celebrities or stock images.

Other people took a twist on the meme and posted their “sister” instead of their dad.

Another person posted their “cousin” who just so happens to look a lot like Timothée Chalamet.

Collin’s dad, Clint Hayslett, is loving all the attention. In a tweet on Sunday night, he wrote, “I can’t believe this! I’m humbled and grateful!”

Here’s to all the dads out there pursuing a modeling career.
