Daniel Hashimoto: Dreamworks Dad Turns Son Into Superhero

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Did someone say "coolest dad ever?" While most home videos are made up of blurry vacation highlights and baby's first crawl, Dreamworks effects specialist Daniel Hashimoto has managed to turn his self-shot footage into video evidence that his kid is a freakin' superhero/Jedi hybrid.

Action Movie Kid: Wet Floor!
Daniel Hashimoto knows how to make home videos cool. Check out the awesome effects on this video of his son.

Check out the videos above and tell us little James (or Action Movie kid, as he's known online) isn't the luckiest tyke in LA.

Through the magic of CGI, James is able to trash a toy store with his light saber, leap to the ceiling with a Batman grappling gun, and jump to safety as his living room floor turns to fire-spewing lava.

"I made them mostly because he is really funny and imaginative," Hashimoto told the Daily News. "James doesn't watch TV or movies very much. We play tons of games with him throughout the day."

And it looks as though their father-son fun time has translated to Internet gold, with the light saber video alone receiving over half a million views on YouTube.

Dad's response to his newfound web celeb status? "It's humbling and I'm excited that a little hobby I have is enjoyable to other people," Hashimoto said. Like we said, coolest dad ever.
