All sizes | Bruno Mars wears Benjamin Eyewear

This dad does something awesome—and a little bit cruel—to wake his son Christian every morning.

That’s one way to wake up your child.

Instead of gently nudging his son Christian awake in the morning, this dad has taken to doing something both awesome and just a tad cruel: he blasts Bruno Mars’s “Runaway Baby” in his ears.

And when Christian does wake up everyday, it turns into a groggy dance party that’s almost a bit Pavlovian. He’s already got some moves, and he’s just a few years younger than Mars’s heyday as an Elvis impersonator.

The song is such a part of Christian’s morning routine that when Piper tried using something other than “Runaway Baby,” he first gives his dad a weird look.

If Bruno Mars is not available, Pharrell is a great second choice.
