Transcript for Daddy-Daughter Date Goes Viral
A viral video sharing a dad and his adorable 3-year-old daughter. It sounds innocent enough but the dad in this video is taking his daughter out on a date. Some find it endearing. Others say it's inappropriate. ABC's linsey Davis is here with the story. Good morning. Good morning, Amy. Some people assign romance to the term date and that's why some people are finding it a bit controversial but one thing that is not in dispute is the importance of the daddy/daughter relationship. And here's a dad with two little girls who found a way to make his one-on-one time with them so special his video about it has gotten nearly 8 million hits. ? Actually pretty nervous. It has been a while. Reporter: It starts out like any ordinary first date. We're going to have some people set up dinner on the back porch. Reporter: Only this one posted by Aaron Dixon has been viewed nearly 8 million times and it's all because of who comes to the door. Oh. Hi. Oh. Hi, dad. You look so cute. Mom did that for me. Reporter: His 3-year-old daughter Anna Lynn so thrilled with her date she kisses him before it even begins. Just a chance to remember this moment when I have a 3-year-old and a 2-year-old and encourage other fathers out there as well they can do it too. Reporter: While some viewers find the roses and pulling out of the chair, the waiter filling her Sippy cup with water and peanut butter sandwiches and strawbursts -- Who did I open the door for. Reporter: There are others who call it nauseating and naysayers saying "It doesn't seem right, very creepy". I think that the video could be controversial only because some people will assign romance to the term date but really this is about a father and a daughter spending beautiful time together. Reporter: But Dixon is hoping this video will last as a reminder to show his daughter how she should be treated by a man. We played at the park after peanut butter sandwiches, strawberries and carrots. Yeah, girl. I love my daddy a lot! Reporter: The joy of the playground and a piggyback ride all setting a high bar for future dates. ? The dad even took the time to write the lyrics of the song heard playing in the video. Now, he says that these daddy/daughter dates are something he does regularly with both his girls and that he hopes it's going to help them to know what to look forward in a future husband. It's really kind of sweet. Take a long time to match that date. Yeah, right. But with so many bad things in the world how is that wrong? This is a sweet -- Spending time with her. Exactly. She's so appreciative of it. You can see the joy in her face.
