Dad's Emotional Reaction to His Son's Good Grade Goes Viral

When Aria Shahrokhshahi got a vastly improved grade in maths he knew one person would be particularly pleased: His Dad, who helped Aria study and improve in the subject. The English schoolboy set up a secret camera to catch his Dad's brilliant reaction, and the resulting footage was viewed over four million times online.

Aria posted the video on Reddit and explained, "I have always struggled with Maths, English (dyslexia) but I don't use it as an excuse, just more of a contributing factor. Me and my dad are very close and he worked with me for weeks and weeks. We were both pretty sure I wasn't go to pass." Aria said he burst into tears when he saw his good grade -- and he knew his father would be equally as excited. His dad's reaction definitely made our day.
