Researchers: Dads are like, so embarrassing

Kids say dads are the most embarrassing parent because of their lack of style and the car they drive, according to researchers.

Everything from nerdy glasses and wearing socks with their sandals made the list. And most kids say they're pretty sure dear old dad thinks he's cool.

To avoid being seen with dad, kids request to be dropped off around the corner or skip hanging out after school if they know dad is home. Some kids even went so far to say they'd completely ignore their dads if they saw him in public.

We're betting the researchers were a bunch of moms hoping their husbands agree to a makeover.

This dad took it to the extreme and filmed his kid trying to squeeze into a pair of skinny jeans. He makes him squat and do a turn. Not sure who should be the embarrassed one.

NOTE: The man who saved a 7-year-old in the video posted below is a dad...probably an embarrassing one too.
