We all know kids like to feel like “grownups”, and one boy and his friends were certainly treated as such when they came to celebrate his 10th birthday.
The boy’s dad made sure there was a real sense of occasion by playing the role of po-faced bouncer at the entrance to his son’s party.
In a clip recorded by his wife, the committed father can be seen patting down the young guests, checking their names on a list and issuing them with lanyards before granting them access to the event.
She shared the video on TikTok, captioning it: “Top flight security for a 10-year-old birthday party lol” and adding: “When my husband takes s**t too far.”

The kids attending the do seem to take the whole affair very seriously too, with one child appearing crestfallen when he’s denied entry.
However, the dad then has a word with someone inside – presumably the birthday boy – and the green light is given to his pal.
Of course, it’s all fun and games, and at one point the dad looks up and catches the eye of his wife then beams warmly.
