What's A-Parent

Ad For Fake Medication 'AphukenbrakE' Is Too Real For 10 Out Of 10 Parents

"Do you suffer from headaches, chronic fatigue, and 'Moana' on repeat?"

What's A-Parent is a series highlighting those who get real about the hardships that come with raising kids. These often untold stories help show parents they are not alone in their struggle, and are doing an amazing job.


"Do you suffer from headaches, chronic fatigue, and Moana on repeat? If so, you may need AphukenbrakE." 

This is the description on a hilarious new video from media company The Dad. The video is an ad for the medication AphukenbrakE which should be taken by people who are suffering from "PAR-ENT-ING." Symptoms of the condition include having kids, children, tots, youngins, boys, girls, boys and girls, girls and boys and any variation in between. 

"PAR-ENT-ING affects 10 out of 10 mothers and fathers around the world and can lead to extreme debt and loss of self-identity," the soothing pharmaceutical lady voiceover explains. "You may need AphukenbrakE." 

Worried about the side effects? Don't be — they're minimal. You may experience a sigh of relief, normalized blood pressure, and a little time to spend with your friends. 

You should not take AphukenbrakE if there is no one else around to watch your kids, if you've already taken one in the last 24 hours, or if your partner has taken one. 

Watch the hilarious fake commercial above — and remember, you're not alone in the struggle that is "PAR-ENT-ING."
