A California father’s “Dad Press Conference” is getting love from millions of parents on TikTok.
Evan Kyle Berger and Kevin Laferriere are the creators of “The Dumb Dads” podcast and are both stay-at-home dads. Their funny videos make light of parenting on their TIkTok and Instagram pages, @dumbdadpod.
In a viral video shared May 4, Berger appears in a mock press conference where he describes a typical day with his 6-year-old and 2-year-old. The video’s style was similar to a sporting event where reporters ask athletes questions about the big game.

“We’ve been flooding our content with humor just to normalize how difficult parenting can be,” Berger told “Good Morning America.” “If it looks real then you believe it’s real and then the jokes will shine more.”
In the video, Berger is seen with stickers on his T-shirt. At one point, he even removes a Lego block from his hair.

Berger went as far to use a backdrop featuring faux brand sponsorship from a peanut butter brand and a kids’ clothing company. The footage was viewed and shared by millions of parents — many of whom commented how the moment resonated.
“It lets us know, we’re coming from the right place here and bringing levity to the perils of parenting,” Berger said.
Berger said he and Laferriere appreciate all the attention and kind words from fellow parents, especially since the pandemic forced many to stay home with their kids.
“We’re all in this together,” Berger said.
