An Irishman Skyped his unsuspecting parents while he was doing a sky dive

Keeping in touch with your parents is important, especially if you’re abroad. They worry.

Irishman Roger Ryan, who is travelling in Australia, decided that the best time to start a Skype chat with his parents was just before a sky dive from 14,000 feet.

He was right. Their reaction, although a little sweary, was exceptional.

Ryan's parents appeared to have not quite realised he was in an aeroplane in time for the jump, eliciting a reaction of surprise which is certain to brighten your day.

The video was uploaded to YouTube by HostelWorld's channel, capturing his father's now-immortal line:

He's doing a selfie coming down in the f*ing airplane!

Ah, parents.

The video has hit over 900,000 views since being uploaded this week.
