Most of us parents (blessedly) have an innate sense that sharing certain family videos — say, one of your 2-and-1/2-year-old son sucking on his father’s meaty toes with obvious relish — is a big NOPE. In fact, I daresay most of us would probably discourage father-son toe-sucking, let alone film it. But actor Armie Hammer (Call Me By Your Name) really went for it, letting his son, Ford, go to town on his big fat piggies the other day while his wife, Elizabeth Chambers, filmed the event.
Erm. [shifts uncomfortably] Well… kids do weird stuff sometimes, right? But all bets were off when Hammer chose to share the clip of his son deep-throating his daddy’s phalanges like corn dogs at the county fair with the entire internet via Instagram. It was definitely Hammer time, with Hammer toes. The clip has since been deleted, but the damage had already been done: Hammer was trending hard on Twitter. The internet threw up more than just a little in its mouth:
The clip shows Ford and his dad laughing while Ford sucks on his papa’s toes, and a woman in the background (likely Hammer’s wife and Ford’s mother, Elizabeth Chambers) groans, “This is not normal.”
When Ford stops feasting on his father’s feet, Hammer grins and says, “All right, no more.”
That *might* have been okay, but the bizarrely social-media tone-deaf Hammer captioned the clip, “This happened for a solid 7 minutes” and hashtagged it “foot fetish on fleek.” AGGHHHHH.
Commenters were quick to respond before the post was deleted. “So gross. Why post it and let it go on for 7 minutes!!” wrote one.
“TOTALLY NOT FUNNY… inappropriate,” wrote another.
Okay, okay, we got it. And Lord knows, we know toddlers do really, really bizarre things. Though a minority on Twitter, there are quite a few voices speaking up for Hammer, simply urging more judicious filming — and sharing.
Well said, voice of reason Edie Spencer. Babies are weird, but sometimes, grown-ass parents are even weirder.
