'Part of your world': Dads sing like Disney princess in sweet video

It doesn't matter where a dad lives or what he does for a living — sing a few bars of an iconic Disney song like "Part of your World" from "The Little Mermaid," and chances are, he'll be able to join right in.

In an adorable video that shows dads from all walks of life singing Princess Ariel's iconic tune, the creators of podcast and online network Life of Dad are making a simple statement about how a dad's love for his children can connect him to other fathers in some pretty unique ways.

"No matter who you are," the video begins. "Becoming a dad changes everything."

As the video continues, dads in varying professions — from firefighters to farmers — belt out the catchy tune word-for-word while performing their daily job duties. The video ends with a sweet montage of all of the dads, showing how diverse they are, yet how much they have in common.

Patrick Quinn, a co-founder of Life of Dad, says he was inspired to create the video when he realized that, regardless of their backgrounds or locations, all of the dads he is friends with knew the same kids songs.

"The main message of the video is basically no matter who you are, what your background or station in life is, dads will do anything for their kids," said Quinn. "Even if it's looking silly and belting out princess tunes. Actually, especially then."

"Guys who were into country music knew the same songs as guys into metal or rap," Quinn told TODAY Parents. "They knew their kids' Disney tunes and all could sing them word for word. Some of them are dads to daughters, some are dads to sons. But all of them knew the songs."

Quinn, who has three children of his own, says he and his fellow co-creators put out a call to dads from all over, filming some of the scenes in person, and collecting video clips from others. Dads from across the country were eager to participate and show off a bit of their Disney song knowledge.
