This is hilarious!
Publish date:

This is something that every parent who has tried to introduce their kids to the music of their youth can relate to.

Actor Jerry O'Connell, of "Jerry Maguire" and "Scream" fame, went viral this week as he serenaded his daughters in the car with Prince's "When Doves Cry."

As his daughters put their hands over their ears and beg him to stop as he sings along, O'Connell breaks through their protests by shouting: "This is real music, LISTEN!"

His pleas fall on deaf ears however as his daughters continue to shudder in embarrassment.

The video has been viewed more than 3.5 million times on Twitter since Friday, with O'Connell introducing it with a simple tweet of "Teach your kids."
