We wonder what Cassie Martin gave her dad for Father’s Day this year. What do you get a dad who’s been trolling you on social media?
Like a lot of other fathers, Chris “Burr” Martin wasn’t happy to see his teenage daughter posting sexy selfies online.
“So my daughter has been posting sexy selfies of herself and instead of telling her to stop, well, I thought of something better. #dadbod #dadselfie,” he wrote on his Instagram page in April.
That’s where the comedian/podcaster/radio host/actor in Spokane, Wash., started re-creating his daughter’s sexy poses.
Never miss a local story.
They started out tame enough. First came his version of Cassie’s duck face — pouty lips and all.
Then he re-created her bathroom-mirror selfies, in one photo baring his dad tummy to copy her bare middrif pose.
Then he got busy with the eyeliner.
“A while ago some of you saw I was copying the photos my daughter would post on her Facebook, mainly because I told her it looked like she was trying to escort Japanese businessmen and to tone it down,” he wrote.
“She did a little but I still kept it up because sometimes I’m just bored.”
He channeled his daughter with great precision, duplicating her tattoo — an anti-demon-possession symbol from the TV show “Supernatural” — for one photo, drawing one on his own chest with a permanent marker.
“Took me 3 days to get all the ink off. lol,” he joked on Instagram.
In that same photo he wore a set of plastic leaves on his head to duplicate the Snapchat flower crown filter Cassie used in her selfie.
Cassie posted that photo to Twitter and on her Facebook page, where it’s been shared nearly 16,000 times, and people are calling Martin the “best dad.”
And that’s how we know that Cassie, a newly minted social media star, isn’t really serious when she gripes:
