While 2019 has only just begun, a father from Norway has made a strong case for himself as the Dad of the Year in a cute viral video.
í˜rjan Bunrí¸e, a comedian, posted the silly clip to Instagram with the caption "Mum is gone, no stress," showing what he and his four-year-old son, Dexter, get up to when the responsible adult of the house is away.
Dressed up as Elsa from the Disney movie Frozen, í˜rjan and Dexter skip around their house to the tune of "Let It Go," acting out scenes from the animated movie.
Any parent with a child Dexter's age must be sick to death of the Idina Menzel song by now, but í˜rjan put up with the tune for the sake of his son's entertainment.
He's been rewarded with more than 480,000 views since his video was posted last week, as parents share the hilarious performance and applaud the supportive dad.
The video even earned Bunrí¸e shout-outs from the cast of Frozen. Both Idina Menzel, the voice of Elsa, and Kristen Bell, the voice of Elsa's sister Anna, shared the video on Twitter.

In an interview with CBS News, Bunroe revealed his son is "just the biggest fan of Elsa at the moment," and says their viral dance came about because "I thought maybe I should try to see it through his eyes."
While Bunrí¸e didn't seem that embarrassed to show off his dance moves, he said it was "important to embarrass yourself and let it go" once in a while.
And the supportive dad also poo-pooed commenters who claimed he was setting a bad impression by traipsing around in a dress with his young son.
"He just sees something that's great. For him, Elsa is a superhero," Bunrí¸e said.
"It's important to teach children you can do whatever you want to do, and not put prejudice all over them," he added.
