How did the video go?

Alaric first greeted the recipient and introduced himself, before wishing him a great Father's Day first!

Alaric then commended the recipient for his hard work as a policeman, before he proceeded to share more about his experience as a father.
Fun fact: Do you know that Alaric's son wants to be a policeman?

Alaric proceeded to assure the recipient that the fatigue he was experiencing is normal. In his words, fatherhood is traumatic. He mentioned that despite the tiring, sleepless nights, things will get better. If things don't get better, it's not the end yet!

After mentioning that he heard that the recipient is an expert in diaper changing, Alaric spoke in classic Andre Chichak style and explained that he, too, claims the same title. He then challenged him to a diaper changing competition, with sass!

He then proceeded to commend the recipient for taking responsibility by changing the daughter's diaper at night and taking care of his wife.
The best quote? "The best gift you can gift your children is to take care of your wife"

He then encouraged the recipient more and reminded the recipient that his wife and his daughter love him. He has Alaric's respect!

Fatherhood is difficult! Raising a baby is like riding a roller coaster; it's filled with ups and downs and possibly a lot of vomit. It is thus, important that in the midst of the ride, we show appreciation for fathers, who selflessly give to ensure that the family gets only the best that they could even beyond Father's Day.
