In honour of Father's Day, have the best the internet has to offer in dad excellence.

With Father's Day coming up on Sunday, now is as good a time as any to celebrate everything about dads. Their wisdom, their hobbies, their ability to stay out of it when mum's telling you off... and their dancing. Dad dancing is the best

We've put together a list of some of our favourite examples of dad dancing from across the internet; dads everywhere, we hope you're taking note. ENJOY:

1. Daddy/Daughter dancing to "Shake It Off"

Kicking it off with a new-old favourite, these two were just one of many "Shake It Off" dance videos we saw; but that doesn't make it any less adorable.


2. Dad killing it at a music festival

Flailing arms, a solid mustache, the high black socks with shorts, belt bag and a winning carefree smile. This guy is quintessential dad.


3. Stavros Flatley

Who could forget the ultimate father/son dancing pair from Britain's Got Talent? Demetrios and his son Lagi gained viral success after appearing on the show with their bizarre Greek/Irish dancing routine and are still touring the world today.


4. Dad/Daughter Wedding Medley

Because your dad dance at your wedding doesn't have to be a sad affair, these two made sure the rest of the wedding attendees got a show with some amazing choreography.


5. Christmas dads dancing to dubstep

As part of their last Christmas ad campaign, Sainsbury's ran this video of a group of dads (aka The Christmas Jumpers) doing their own choreography to a dubstep remix of "Dance Of The Sugar Plum Fairy".



6. This... glorious example.

This video may be only six seconds long, but this dad fits so much dadness into that time that it's up to Tumblr user susemoji to ask the important questions.



7. The Evolution Of Dad Dancing

Jimmy Fallon gets some help from Governor Chris Christie to bust out some iconic moves like the "Lawn Mower" and the "Don't Make Me Turn This Car Around".


8. Justin Bieber Backup Dancer Dad 

Not sure if this dad was recruited to dance or just refused to get out of shot, but his fluid moves turned this "Baby" singalong into viral magic.


9. Turkish Dad Does the Apache Dance

This granddad has two generations of dad dancing under his belt, and he's gonna prove it. Not sure about the significance of the "Apache Dance", but it's one he's happy to bust out for the unimpressed grandkids.


10. Supercut of dads dancing to "Uptown Funk"

Lastly, if this list wasn't enough dad for you, the folks at Tastefully Offensive pulled together some more of the best dancing dad clips from the web, and set them to the most inspiring dad-dance song of the past year. Don't believe me? Just watch. 

Happy Fathers' Day! ALL HAIL DAD DANCING.
