Asking a celebrity to hold your baby might otherwise get you detained by security, but not at a celebrity golf tournament apparently.
In this video, a dad tries desperately to get every star that walks by at a celebrity golf tournament to hold his baby. He first asks NBA star Steph Curry, who walks by without a glance. He desperately tries for Dallas Cowboy’s quarterback Tony Romo, all while holding his unfazed child in the air. He then spots Justin Timberlake, who he knows might play along.
The dad puts Justin under pressure as the crowd starts a convincing “Hold the baby” chant. Justin stops in his tracks, compelled by the voices, and blesses the baby by holding him in his arms.
Not only does Justin cuddle the baby like the natural father he is, but then Steph joins in (after first refusing the baby, mind you) and suggests raising the baby Lion King-style and singing the iconic opening line of “Circle of Life,” solidifying this baby as their new king.
This baby doesn’t realize, or care for that matter, that this is by far the best thing that’s happened to him in his very short life.
Bringing a baby to a golf tournament might not be the best idea, but had this baby not been there, he wouldn’t have had the chance to be cradled by Justin Timberlake.
He’s bringin’ baby back.
