Three-year-old unknowingly fools dad with ‘under where – underwear’ prank based on Barenaked Ladies song

VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (FTN) – A Terre Haute toddler has fooled his dad with a prank his parents have been trying to play on each other for years.

It happened Friday morning while the two were swimming.

Parents Chris and Ami Essex have been trying to get each other to say underwear for years without luck.

The way the prank works is one parent would say ‘Look under there’ with hopes the other would say ‘under where (or underwear).

“Oh yeah, it was from the Barenaked Ladies song, Pinch Me, we both love BNL. We’ve been trying to trick each other into saying it for years…so far, neither one of us have gotten each other,” Ami said.

That all changed on Friday when Chris took three-year-old Alex to the pool.

“He’s in a big ‘what’s that’ phase right now. It’s cute. But at the pool this morning he kept saying ‘what’s under there?’ I ultimately said ‘under where, buddy?’ At that moment, I knew I had just lost my streak,” Chris said.

He told us, for there to be a reset on the game, he would need a personal excuse from anyone of the Barenaked Ladies band members.

“It’s out of respect for the game. I just…I feel so disappointed in myself,” Chris said.
