In celebration of her father’s birthday, the Scandal actress posted a reel video of them together on Instagram. The short video clip—taken directly from the Dad Joke archives—starts with Washington commenting on her father’s stylish “Dad” jeans, to which he returns the compliment. Then, she asks him to tell a funny “Dad” joke to the viewers watching.
“How does a pair of jeans cool themselves off?” he says. “They pant!” (Good one!) Her father laughed uncontrollably and the Little Fires Everywhere alum proceeded to show off her matching pair of dad jeans.
Washington wrote in the caption, “From the #DadJoke archives [laughing emoji], in honor of the #DadJoke King’s birthday. Happy Birthday, Pops!!!! Love you!!!!!”
Her followers flooded the comments section with happy birthday wishes and even their own jokes. One person wrote, “Lol! Happy Birthday Sir Earl!” with prayer hand emojis. Another person said, “I can’t handle this!! Too cute! [red heart emoji].”
Keep the dad jokes coming, Earl!
