As the father of a student who struggles academically (but excels unimaginably creatively), I was certain I could predict how this video will end up. Boy was I wrong.

YouTube contributor ariamark sets it up for us in his comments:

One year before this video I was at a grade F in maths and in England you need a C (pass) to basically do anything with your life, I've never been amazing academically and have struggled through out school, neither me or my dad or my teachers thought I was going to get my C. I know some of you might be saying, well an c is nothing but for me it was hard to get. please enjoy the video.

Unbridled joy ensues as his father realizes it's a C.

I get his elation, and it truly gives a spike of hope to any parent who has supported their kid thru thick and thin, F's and A's.Hopefully you can get through the whole thing. I had to stop about a minute in, because I was crying with joy for both of them. Another heart-warming part of this story? The only other video he has posted is also his dad.
