Alright, I know I gave you all a Jen’s Favourite Thing’s on Friday about Father’s Day…but I didn’t see this video until yesterday and I don’t think it could be more fitting than on the day after dad’s day.
Adam Young, aka Owl City, had a very special gift for his dad this Father’s Day: a sentimental song and video in his honor, titled “Not All Heroes Wear Capes.” His father, Randy Young, even co-stars in the clip.
“For this Father’s Day, I wrote ‘Not All Heroes Wear Capes’ to tell my dad I love him. As an introvert, I’ve haven’t been overly vocal in telling the people in my life that I cherish them. This song is just my way of telling my dad how much I respect and appreciate him. I only hope to someday be as good of a man as he is,” Young told People.
In the song, Young sings that even though he is a little taller than his dad he still looks up to him and that he doesn’t always say I love you, but you can hear him loud and clear.
I hope you had a great Father’s Day, share this with dad to let him know he’s your hero!
