Adam and Jeremy Say: World's Strongest Dad

Okay, so I'm not a huge fan of the song, and the lyrics don't really fit the video, but the video is awesome none the less.

A little background on this clip for those that don't know. Not long after these pictures were taken, the father had a severe heart attack. To sumarize, he survived, and his doctor said something interesting. He said, "Your son saved your life."
See, while his son was growing up confined to a wheel chair and only being able to speak through a computer by noding his head, one day after his dad took him on his first jog, his son was able to communicate to him, "I FEEL ALIVE".
Basically that inspired the father to start doing this more, and eventually he was able to complete triathalons with his son.
Back to the point of the story. If he has not been inspired by his son to do all that stuff, his body would have not have been healthy enough to survive the heart attack.
With that being said, enjoy the clip.

P.S. Sure we've all made fun of cripled people before, but maybe you can back up from that for a moment and really think about how we should treat people.
