'I decided to record a wildcard in my kitchen while I was babysitting my little daughter. It was just for fun,' wrote Helium.
Babies can often be cranky and begin to cry, they don't care if it's in a public place or in the middle of the parent's work from home. It becomes quite difficult for parents to handle such situations. However, a professional beatboxer and dad, exactly knows how to calm his child, thanks to his amazing beatboxing skills. In a video posted on Reddit by u/Obdex_code, a dad can be seen beginning to record a video. He says, "Yo, my name is Helium" and this was his audition for the Great Beatbox Battle, 2023.
The child who was crying earlier again starts to become cranky. "Leave me, two minutes please." He then begins to beatbox in front of the camera. As soon as he starts, the kid becomes completely quiet. Seems like the child knows about their parent's amazing talent. The music seems to hit all the right notes and it sounds almost perfect. Once he stops, the child begins to cry again in the video. The video already has 8.5k upvotes on Reddit. It is captioned, "Beatboxing calms the baby down."
People were impressed by Helium's beatboxing skills. u/Jaded-Zucchini8046 commented, "Awesome skills. That calmed me down also." u/WuickyViper26 wrote, "Wow that is so clean & clear! Like I can clearly hear all the different things going on at the same time - no wonder baby was calm! So much going on!" u/monokutho said, "I can't tell if it's real, is too good. Unbelievable." u/brwnbOmber expressed, "Used to do the same thing when my daughter was born. She would look at me with the most confusing look. Lol." u/JerachoD commented, "This really did make me smile, what a cool guy, and super talented."
The original video posted on Helium's YouTube channel @Helium_Beatbox mentions the story behind the video. "I want to share a little story with you, about how I made this video. I spent 5 days recording my Wildcard, I recorded it in a studio with professional equipment. I couldn't do anything because it was too hard for me to hit the notes, I'm not very good at it. After 5 days of recording, I was already desperate, I even thought about completely redoing my wildcard. But it so happened that on the sixth day, I decided to record a wildcard in my kitchen, on my phone, while I was babysitting my little daughter. It was just for fun, I did not expect that I would get something serious. To my surprise, this video turned out to be very cute, and I hit all the notes perfectly without much effort. And after it, I just didn't want to record anything else, I realized that I could not create such an atmosphere again," he wrote.
Dads like these are the ones who have a special bond with their kids since childhood and then go on to build on those relationships for a lifetime. And Helium sure is talented enough to pass on his skills as well.
