In a tongue-in-cheek video, a mom decided to poke a little fun at dads who feel the needs to turn into children when they have a cold.
A 37-year-old mom has turned into a viral sensation after creating a spoof video comparing the differences between men and women as they fight through a cold. It was published to the parenting blog “That’s Inappropriate” and currently has an astonishing 25 million views on Facebook and 1 million more on YouTube.
Trust us, it’s worth a viewing, and we’ve embedded the video to the bottom of this article. It stars Meredith Masony, who first shared the video – titled “The Man Cold Vs The Mom Cold” – last year. However, as cold and flu season rolled around, it started to get some renewed attention and really took off.
Masony told Popsugar that she was inspired to create the video based on how she’s seen her own husband reach to a cold. “There are no sick days for Moms,” Masony wrote in the video’s caption. “Men, on the other hand, seem to turn into children when they get a cold. Does your man suffer the ‘Man Cold’ when he is sick?”
