How to Fight A Baby. Controversial Video Goes Viral

It is a question all too often asked by new parents. “How do we handle our new baby? What if we hurt him?”

Gavin McInnes, a Scottish-Canadian actor, comedian, and co-founder of Vice magazine, uploaded a video on his YouTube giving viewers a tutorial on how to handle and how to fight your baby in a badass way.

“A lot of you out there are scared of babies,” McInnes says in the video.

“They are easy-pease to handle, I’m gonna show you how.”

At first glance it is pretty shocking to see him slamming, throwing, grappling with his cute little baby but then you see the baby is totally unharmed.

McInnes then introduces us to a secret weapon, the baby’s weakness: “Their one Achilles’ heel, is wind.” He then proceeds to blow into the child’s face.

It is to be noted that dogs also don’t enjoy having people blowing into their faces, thus sharing this weakness with human babies.

McInnes urges parents not to be afraid of their babies. “A lot of the fear of babies is assuming that their punches or their strikes or their slaps hurt. They don’t actually hurt.”

Tickling is also a great way to “fight” your baby.

“So yeah, dealing with babies is nothing to be afraid of, just keep your nails trim and you’re good.”
