Lucky Dad Saves Himself Thousands Of Dollars With One Basketball Shot

"If this goes in, I will not make you pay one more dollar for anything I want." says the daughter at the beginning of this video, no doubt thinking there wasn't a chance in hell of her dad making a shot with his back turned to the net.

And at first it doesn't look like he's going to as the ball soars past the basket. But then Lady Luck steps in and it's victory to dad, in the process saving himself loads of money that can instead be spent on expensive golf clubs in the years ahead.

Maybe this should be a standardized way that parents could use to determine whether they have to pay for their child's upbringing. If you get the shot, the kid has to find their own money to buy clothes, video games, put themselves through college—sounds fair, right?
