"You wanted a snack and I said fine," the father sings to his baby. "And in your dreams you've eaten this 1,000 times. Sometimes see it walk outside your door. JELL-O, is it me you're looking for?"

The video by Hopatcong resident Charles Flartey dad is just a week old, and has already been viewed more than 100,000 times on YouTube. Flartey told NJ.com he's sung in a few bands and his son likes to hear him sing. He's apparently not the only one.Flartey's videos have been featured on 'Today," "Good Morning America" and "Inside Edition."

The comments on his initial video are sparse — just 13 so far — but all positive. Well, if you count "This guy makes me want to break up with my dad," among the positive ones. One user called the singing "adorable." Another: "His singing is actually really good!
