Ever wonder what a 4-year-old is thinking during hockey practice? Well, YouTuber Coach Jeremy did, so he planted a mic’d up his son to find out. A dad and hockey coach from Ontario, Canada, decided to wire-up his son Mason during his practice on the ice. “I mic’d up my 4-year-old at Timbits Hockey so I could finally understand what the heck he was doing out there,” Jeremy Rupke, aka Coach Jeremy, said. “It was… Interesting.”
The clip features the adorable stream of consciousness of young Mason while tackling the ice. He can be heard muttering “one, two, one, two” to himself as he attempts the near impossible feat of skating with both feet, followed shortly by an exclamation of “I’m doing it!”
Unsurprisingly, the results were pretty adorable. During the session, Mason is seen using his hockey stick as a sword to play fight with this friend, all while saying things like “I’m gonna have a nap,” “I need to go pee,” and “Let me go you old fat can.”
“I grew up in a small farm town and loved playing hockey, the best part of hockey was getting together with friends and just having fun,” Coach Jeremy wrote. “Of course, I also had a passion to improve and be the best I could. In a small town you get taught whatever your coach feels like teaching you, some coaches were great and others were just coaching because their son played on the team. I learned a lot about hockey but also had to figure a lot of things out on my own.”
The best part, however, is his commentary throughout the whole thing.
You need to check out the entire video. It’s pretty hilarious:
By the end Mason is left pondering when practice will be over and if his dad will take him to McDonald’s for “a baby happy meal.” Let us know your thoughts.
