“He likes to be the life of the party, which gets him into trouble from time to time”, Brad Sr told Buzzfeed News. His dad responded with a threatening promise. "For some reason I said, 'Hey, if we get another call I'm going to show up in school and sit beside you in class,'" Dad Brad said. And it wasn’t long until that call came through and Brad Sr had to live up to his word.

“Friday is my only day off, so my wife wakes me up and says, ‘Brad, it’s time for you to go to school.’ I thought, Oh no, what have I done?” He said he felt “nervous” sitting in a class full of startled teens, but soon got comfortable as his son’s classmates reveled in his embarrassment. Brad Jr said: “I didn’t even notice him until after I had said hi to all of my friends, but I was super shocked.” His school friends weren’t the only ones to get a kick out of the punishment.

Sister Molli Howard wrote on Twitter: “My dad told my brother if he got another call from the physics teacher complaining he would go sit in his class… dad got another call.” It received dozens of replies from strangers who were more than supportive of the ultimate “embarrassing dad” move. And there are hopes the stunt paid off, with dad Brad saying: “I pray it was a one-time thing. I don’t think I’d ever do it again.”
