You're Not My Dad!, also known by the hashtag #NOODLEHEAD is a phrase uttered by a young child in a viral video on Vine uploaded by user Jessi Lockett. The child yells at the camera, saying "You're Not My Dad! You always wanna hear something!", then calls the person holding the camera an "ugly a** f***in' noodlehead." Both the initial and last lines of the video have been used in mashup videos on Vine, or videos where the soundbyte is paired with other clips for comedic effect, similar to The "Lebron James" Kid.


On November 16th, 2014, Vine user Jessi Lockett uploaded a video clip in which a child yells at the cameraperson saying “You’re Not My Dad! You always wanna hear something!” before calling them an “ugly a** f***in’ noodlehead.” As of March 27th, 2015, the video garnered over 24 million loops, 422.7k likes, and 286k reVines, and 20.9k comments.


In late January and early February of 2015, the video enjoyed a surge in popularity as Vine users re-Vined it, posted it on YouTube, remixed the audio to music, and re-appropriated the child's soundbytes onto other videos. User JMerks remixed the audio with a trap beat to create a VineTrack on Soundcloud[3]; this clip has 143k plays as of March 27th, 2015.

Another popular video, by user ClutchChris, transposed the boy's audio onto a video of Darth Vader telling Luke Skywalker that he's his father. The ClutchChris watermarked version of the video has been posted by several users, garnering at least 150k loops between February 3rd, 2015 and March 27th, 2015.
