When Scott Mackintosh’s daughter refused to change her Daisy Duke-style shorts, the Utah father decided it was time to take action.
Mackintosh took a pair of scissors and some old jeans and fashioned his own pair of short shorts.
“We had plenty of arguments about it and that doesn’t ever get you anywhere. So we decided to go with more of a humorous route. I knew she would take it well and in good spirits and think it was funny,” Mackintosh said during a television interview.
The family stopped at an ice cream shop where Mackintosh was photographed wearing the now infamous shorts and a T-shirt that read “Best. Dad. Ever.” His daughter refused to get out of the car.
“Well, it definitely showed me that my dad cares a lot more than I thought he had. If he’d go to those lengths to look like that out in public and embarrass himself a little bit to prove a point,” his daughter said.
The pictures went viral after Mackintosh’s daughter posted them to her Tumblr account, according to People.com.
