Instead of responding to her queries with a standard reply about their kids' wellbeing, Deuss makes things a little more exciting.
Kenny Deuss, from Antwerp in Belgium, is peak dad in every sense of the term. A true master in the art of dad jokes, the father-of-two has amassed a following of over 166k fans on an Instagram account dedicated to winding his girlfriend up while she is at work and wants to know how their children are doing. Instead of responding to her queries with a standard reply about their kids' wellbeing, Deuss makes things a little more exciting by sending her photoshopped pictures of their daughters, Alix and Aster, in various dangerous, adventurous, and comic situations.
"Most pictures take a lot of time to make. To make the pictures as realistic as possible, I have to make sure the situation is as realistic as possible. This means we have to go to the location of the picture and also use the objects I need for the idea to work. Sometimes, I can add an artificial background or object, but this will make the result look a bit fake," Deuss told Bored Panda about his process. He revealed that the easiest photos to edit are the ones that he can make at home. "But even this is a challenge because my daughters are a bit too young to understand the concept. They are always in a playful mood so they sometimes don't want to cooperate," he added.
"But when all photos are made, another challenge lies ahead. Editing the photos can take some time as well. When the photos work out how I intended it can be an easy job, but this is not always the case so I have to be creative to make the idea work," said Deuss, who is a sound and light engineer. In an earlier interview, he confirmed that his girlfriend has a great sense of humor and therefore enjoys the dangerously funny photos he sends her. "My girlfriend had to look twice when she received the first photo [to understand what was really going on], but it didn't take long before she and her colleagues started looking forward to new pictures," he said.
"That being said, she always makes sure that the pictures were safely made. She's always happy with the result," Deuss added. He also revealed that his pictures are almost always inspired by daily life. "At this point, I don't have the feeling I'm running out of ideas. I have a lot of new ideas, so we can keep this going for a while," he said. "Since my first images went viral, I also began making additional content for my followers on Instagram. I regularly make a fun little game to interact with our followers, and I make sure people can follow our daily adventures as well. It has become an amazing new journey and I really love this interaction with my followers."
