Harry Styles has a charm about him a…je ne sais quoi, if you will. It doesn’t matter how old or young you are, many of us cannot resist it. But since he got his start in the music business as part of a British boy band, many of his fans skew younger—even if they were literal infants when One Direction topped the charts.
Anyway, because lots of fans of his are minors who cannot legally drive past 11 p.m. in most states (or at all), dads are usually called to do their Dad Duty when the concert is over to pick up their kiddos.
This hilarious viral TikTok—set to the Home Depot theme music, no less—captures the true essence of the Pop Concert Dad. Enjoy.
This basically a dad’s rite of passage, isn’t it? Back in my day, the dads were lining up outside the local arena after their daughters finished screaming and fainting over the Backstreet Boys and ‘Nsync for 2 hours.
It’s nice to see that the duty of the Concert Dad is intergenerational and also timeless.
Some dads go one step farther by actually attending Harry Styles concerts with their kids—and Harry himself took notice during one of his performances on tour last month.
He’s able to identify them as dads because they’re “wearing a golf shirt to a concert.” LOL. He even teases them for tucking them in! Amazing.
Harry’s Love on Tour still has plenty of stops in the states, so keep on keepin’ on, dads everywhere.
