This Dad Turned Their Garage Into A Disco For His Mija To Escape An Argument With Her Mom

We all know that where there is love, there is war. Disagreeing with your parents is normal, and so is fighting with your parents. We love the way one dad intervened an escalating fight between his daughter and wife, and so do 9 million other Twitter users.

Ivana Reynoso posted a video of her and her dad dancing in their garage to Lady Gaga with an actual disco ball and the video went viral. With over 800k likes and 9 million views, it’s safe to say the world prefers this alternative to luchando con madre.

Ivana Reynoso posted a video of her and her father dancing to Lady Gaga and he is the clear winner.

They spent an hour dancing out the bad vibes left behind by the argument. It is one of the greatest ways we have ever seen someone deescalate an argument. 10/10

That said, the comment section lit up in good and bad ways.

Of course, most of the world just straight up stans this duo. Can’t imagine why anyone would use their garage in any other way.

Some were really feeling for how her mom might be feeling a little left out at this point.

If lighthearted bonding, while you’re raging on the inside isn’t painful enough, the video went viral. Thanks, internet, for always getting in the middle of relationships.

Reynoso wasn’t going to have anyone dissing her mami, as any good Latino child.

Nice comeback, Reynoso. Life is in session, folks. Anything perfect sounds boring as hell. Also, perfect relationships are not a real thing.

Ivana took her 15 minutes of fame to plug three important issues to her.

Reynoso wanted to take the opportunity to remind folks that trans rights are human rights, to believe women and stop littering. Solid messaging. She even added her Instagram handle to the tweet for good measure.

With that, the standom grew.

Reynoso probably knew that this video would become the news of yesteryear by the end of the day, and jumped on the moment to normalize the issues dearest to her. That’s a strategy for the greater good right there.

Folks were inspired to see such a light and fun father-daughter relationship, as well.

For those of us who don’t speak with our fathers or who never experienced playfulness with a parent, getting a glimpse into an hour of plain fun in the garage is like a breath of fresh air.

The comment threat is half made up of praise and adoration.

Wait for it. You know the other half is going to be straight hate (as in puro hate, that happens to single-handedly be from straight people).

Then there’s this men’s rights activist.

This is a case of #BlackLivesMatter. Yes, sure, all lives matter, but that is mega tone-deaf. Men are assaulted, and it’s horrible and it shouldn’t happen. However, the U.S. is fighting like hell right now over abortion rights.

Allies were here to diss the transphobic trolls.

Of which there were far too many. Thank you @paranoidangel18, for stopping hate in its tracks.

Reading a comment thread is always going to be painful, but is nearly unbearable when transphobia is involved.

@twinklouee / Twitter

Reynoso brought up an important message, which in turn gave us all a reminder that the hate for trans people is very real in this country. We need more Ivanas plugging the cause.

In conclusion, we stan a woke, progressive Disco Queen.

Thank you for sharing this moment of fun, and giving us all one more option to turn to when tensions start running high. ????????????
