    Fine, adorable. But this folksy whistly soundtrack meme for all things straight and cute needs to be kiboshed.

    Parents: teach your kids about the wonders of Rock n Roll. For the sake of the nation.

    The bad music, the radioactivity, the danger… Cmon guys! The dad sent the kid’s favorite freaking toy to SPACE!! How many of us can claim our dad did something that cool for us just to teach us stuff. I don’t think my dad even knew what my favorite toy was! Dad of the Year to me too!

    Great. This innocuous toy has probably brought the modern-day intergalactic plague upon us. Andromedy strains are always hovering at the stratopause just waiting to hitch a ride down to dear ol’ unsuspecting Earth. We’ll be bleeding out our eyes by Xmas.

    For those that mention the possible danger, he’s stated that he called the FAA 15 minutes before launch (as they ask people to do), and that he studied the weather patterns for two months(!) to make sure it would land in a safe area.

    Also, he says that his son has gone through four Stanleys, so far, so I’m sure the father has a supply stored away somewhere safe.

    His dad has other videos of his son and the train doing other things at his YouTube channel.

    The only thing my Dad went out of his way to teach me was that he had plenty of guns and bullets and would shoot any kid of his that turned out to be a dirty queer. Yeah, this kid in the vid is VERY lucky indeed!
