Meet California dad Mikki Willis. He’s being called “father of the year” after posting a video on Facebook supporting his son’s decision to buy a Little Mermaid Ariel doll at the store.

The filmmaker posted the video of his son Azai and explained he had taken he son to the store to exchange a birthday gift.

Azai wanted an Ariel doll. And Willis thought nothing of it, saying, “How do you think a dad feels when his son wants to get this? Ya! I let my boys choose their life.”

The video has been viewed over 14 million times on Facebook.

Many people wrote that Willis was a great dad.


And others said they’ve had similar experiences with their own sons.

Willis hopes that his video will inspire people to let their children “express themselves truthfully”.

Amen to that.
