It’s always curious what kind of support people’s parents offer when their kids have a non conventional career — and the more non conventional the rare the support can be. Such is the case for Ben Wonder — a YouTuber who decided to go full time with his passion, and decided to break the news to his father over a recording. The encounter goes about as well as one could hope, and you can hear, in real time, as a father is completely and utterly disappointed that his progeny is not pursuing a more conventional career or an education which — in Ben’s defense — Ben thinks sucks.
But then! Ben creates art — and remixes his father’s disappointment into a weird little song. You can hear his dad saying “get a real job” over a particularly fantastic beat and witness the purest act of turning your own deep personal pain into a fun and very great song. Ben, good work sir.
