Comedian DJ Pryor says that he’s always spoken to his children (even when they were toddlers) as if they could understand his every word. The approach seems to be working with 15-month-old Kingston, who holds detailed conversations with his dad. Sure, it’s in a language known only to the two of them, but that hasn’t stopped the world from being charmed.
Cute cats, meet your competition. These 75 seconds of father and son watching television have racked up 15 million views on YouTube alone. You’ll understand why the instant you see Kingston and DJ Pryor in action. They’re irresistibly sweet and silly. What’s even more remarkable, however, is how exactly like a grown-up conversation their exchange appears. The baby waits his turn. Each time Dad speaks, he listens with rapt attention. He makes eye contact. He responds on cue.
The moment is mysterious, perhaps, but more importantly it’s heartwarming. Enjoy! Or should I say, Higlech!
