Dad’s impression of Elmo is spot-on, and his baby is totally here for it

One dad is earning his “Father of the Year” mug a little early with his near-perfect impression of Sesame Street fave Elmo for his young son, Ayden.

Timothy Jones, from Jackson, Mississippi, filmed several videos that featured the famous red fuzzy character singing classics like Elmo’s Song and If You’re Happy and You Know It, but it was Jones himself who was providing the signature voice.

The dad of two, with one on the way, had his baby (who’s now a big brother) smiling, laughing and clapping alongside his furry friend.

Jones knows a thing or two about entertaining, though. A self-described “professional dancer/entertainer/comedian,” he also runs a popular Facebook page called “Kel & Tim” that spotlights his family, which includes Ayden’s expecting mom and younger brother. At 48,000 followers, Ayden isn’t the only one enjoying his dad’s serious entertaining skills.

We can’t wait to see what else he has in store! Happy Father’s Day!
