Megan told BuzzFeed News she's "always loved doing makeup" and she started a makeup tutorial YouTube channel in August to show off her skills to her friends and family.

In November, Megan got her dad in on her hobby by having him do the voiceover for one of her tutorials.

Megan had seen a number of videos of makeup tutorials where boyfriends, husbands, and dads narrated, and decided to make one of her own.

Her dad, who Megan said has always loved acting and even used to want to be a voiceover artist, immediately agreed.

The resulting video is pure dad-joke hilarity.

The video is over a month old, but it went viral on Monday after being reposted on Facebook, where it was viewed more than 30 million times.

Megan said her dad has always been pretty funny, but she didn't expect how much other people would love it.

"That’s the kind of stuff my dad says all the time," she said. "So, when I first watched the video, I was just like, oh yeah, that’s my dad, whatever. So for other people to find it hilarious was super weird!"

People can't stop laughing over the voiceover, and they think "more dads need to do this challenge."

Megan said that in spite of her dad's teasing in the voiceover, he's really proud of her tutorials.

"He thinks that I have way too much makeup and spend way too much time on that kind of stuff," she said. "But I think overall he’s proud that I do it as a hobby and not because I’m insecure or anything."

"He’s proud that I have something I’ve stuck to, that I have fun doing," she said.
