This Dad Who Wore A Tie His Son Made In First Grade To Graduation And People Are Emotional

Dads rule.

Posted on June 2, 2017, at 4:43 p.m. ET

This is Dylan Olivo, an 18-year-old from Austin, Texas, and his dad, Robert.


When Dylan was in first grade, he made his dad the coolest Father's Day gift of all time: a handmade Pokémon necktie.


"Since I loved Pokémon at the time (still do), I decided why not have him wear a tie of something that I like?" he told BuzzFeed News of his design decision.

So, 11 years later, when Dylan graduated from high school on Thursday, Robert really only had one outfit option.


"He wore the tie to show he had it and to reflect that I am officially a high school graduate and not the child I was when I made the tie," he said.

Dylan posted about the sweet gesture on Twitter, and people are seriously emotional about it.

I made this tie for my dad when I was in 1st grade. 11 years later he wears it to my graduation :')

Needless to say, there were a lot of tears.

@themindofd this is so beautiful. God bless you

And people think Robert is the best dad ever.

@themindofd your dad is amazing and so are you. congrats on graduating.

@themindofd Your dad is the absolute best. Cherish this moment forever. 💙


Dylan said he'd had an inkling his dad might break out the tie for his big day, but was so happy when he saw it.


"I was so excited and full of joy at graduation that it brought my spirits even higher seeing it," he said.
