Having a cute baby on the internet is like licence to print money. Even mundane, every day chores like washing a car can end up going viral.
Take ‘How to DAD’ on YouTube for example: He proves that all you need to rack up over 1.5 million views is a car, a bucket of suds, and a baby.
This isn’t his first brush with internet stardom either. Dad Jordan Watson had his first viral hit with How to Hold a Baby and all he needed was his daughter Alba and a couple of beer cases to get the camera up to the right height.
I very quickly fell down the YouTube rabbit hole, and an hour later I now know How to Fly with a Baby, Go Grocery Shopping with a Baby, and How to Put a Baby to Sleep.

I have a feeling I'd be a big user of the 'Give Up' technique.
