This Is What Happens When Parents Play Too Much Doom

When I was a kid, I hated waking up for school. I made my Dad set five alarms ten minutes apart to make the whole experience a little more manageable, and you know what? Not once did he march into my room, with a frickin' super soaker, singing the music from Doom, blasting me with freezing cold water. In hindsight, maybe I was a little spoiled.

What makes this whole thing so awesome is the way it's been shot - this YouTube clip is greater than the entirety of that terrible Doom movie featuring The Rock.

Shooting Your Sleeping Kid With A Super Soaker While Singing The Doom Theme Song Is A Really Effective Alarm Clock [Gizmodo]


    Hahahahaha love it!

    I feel like my ISP might report me to the authorities just for watching that.

    I wish I had the money to pay someone to get me up every morning like this.

      I'll do it for free aaannnddd each and every day it will be a different theme from a video game from the 90's...I might skip super mario bros becauses I'm a big guy and no one wants that.

    Kotaku -> Gizmodo -> The Daily What -> Reddit.

    It's sources all the way down!


    The best thing about that movie was that the demons/zombies/whatever they were were supposed to be that way because they had gained an extra 21st chromosome. That's actually what causes Down Syndrome.

      Well that explains the design of the monsters...

    E1M1.midi! God games back in the 90's had some fucking awesome "first level" music. I mean with CnC95 the first thing we hear is Act On Instinct ad the one the very first quake level.

    Saw this on the Today show this morning. Carl's reaction was priceless... He obviously never played Doom.

    See, my favorite weapon was the chainsaw. But it wouldn't go down very well here... just sayin'.

    Awesome dad is awesome.

    I guess the kid should be glad his dad's not a fan of Katamari Damacy

    That put a much needed smile on my face, thanks!

    My Dad used the Rolling Stones and a portable CD player... I guess it's the same in principle.

    I'll be doing this to my son even when he is in his teens.

    HAHHAHAHA god this is funny. awesome dad

    What an awesome father.

    I laughed so hard when I watched this. Ah E1M1 such a classic song.

    that guy is now a deity in my eyes, i shall be worshipping this faceless "doom guy" for all eternity...

    "Dun dun dun dun dun dun get out of beeeed."

    Someone fetch this guy an internet, post haste.

    But he was out of bed.

    He just wasn't out of floor yet...
