Usually our dads are the ones giving us the surprises. However, these videos turn it around by giving these fathers the surprise of their lives.

Let's face it, most dads rarely show their emotions, and even if they want to show affection, they usually don't make it apparent. Most of the time, our dads show affection by taking care of us, giving us advice, and providing us with the things we need.

But, however tough or stoic our dads might seem to be, there will always be something that will tug at their heartstrings. Here are 8 videos showing exactly that.
