VIRAL VIDEO OF THE WEEK: Dad Upgrades Son’s Power Wheels
WHAT: YouTube user seanatfftec‘s son Evan loved his Lightning McQueen Power Wheels car so much, he had worn down all of the tires. So, father and son got together and decided to give the vehicle a much-needed upgrade – we’re talking a 500 watt .66 horsepower electric motor, disc brakes, throttle modulated variable speed control and more.
STATS: Since being posted on August 5th, the video has been viewed 2.3 million times.
WHY WE LOVE IT: There are a few reasons to love this video. 1) We wanted one as a kid. 2) It’s a feat of engineering. But most of all 3) What a cool bonding experience for father and son to share. You can’t help but wonder how many more experiences this duo will share over the years. Can’t wait to see what they’re building when Evan gets older.
