Supportive Father Fucking Shit Up During Son’s Performance

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Parents and students attending the Samuel W. Wolfson High School “Battle of the Bands” were caught off-guard by an overly supportive father “tearing shit up” in the pit during a performance by his son’s punk band, Dog Days.

“We were just getting into the swing of things — the crowd seemed pretty into it, and then I saw him,” said Sam Cooper, whose father, Doug Cooper, windmilled like a madman during the band’s three song set and deliberately spin-kicked Jared Rothman, the school’s Vice Principal.

As Mr. Cooper patiently waited for his son’s band to play, he “showed no signs that he was about to fuck shit up harder than many people had ever seen,” said fellow parent Ben Jacobs. “My daughter’s ska band played and he just politely nodded his head, but then when his kid’s band started up, that dude dropped some next-level cart wheels and started winging haymakers at the other parents trying to watch.”

“The worst part was when he sang along,” said the younger Cooper. “He was the only guy trying to pile up; people were just trying to get out of his way.”

Eliza Sharpe, a freshman at the school, confirmed Mr. Cooper “…owned the pit. I thought it might be fun to dance around a little, but I was out there for about five seconds before Sam’s dad charged at me and pushed me into the bleachers. Then he started punching the stage really hard and doing these weird mule kick things.”

Dog Days frontman Eli Clark exacerbated the situation by dedicating a song to Mr. Cooper, who had to remove his shirt to cool off after the first song. “I knew Sam was really embarrassed that his dad was going off. I haven’t even told my parents I am in a band for this exact reason. When I said ‘this song goes out to Mr. Cooper,’ he started clapping his hands super loud and stomping the floor. Sam was bright red,” said Clark, smiling.

After Dog Days completed their set, witnesses report Mr. Cooper chanted ‘one more song’ for two minutes and then sat in his pick-up truck for the remaining two hours of the show before taking the band out for pizza.
