Adorable Clip Shows Grandpa Carry Little Girl in Bucket on Shopping Trip

A grandfather is turning heads in a viral clip where he carried around his granddaughter in a bucket around a Lowe's, garnering a lot of laughs and amusement from viewers.

The now-viral TikTok, captioned, "Grandpa activities #fyp #babiesoftiktok #grandpa," has been viewed 14.3 million times and liked 3.4 million times since it was shared on March 31.

According to an AARP survey, 73 percent of grandparents "enjoy their role" as a grandparent, rating their performance as "high." One in 10 grandparents actually live with their grandchildren and babysit as well. In addition, around 5 percent of grandparents have primary care over their grandkids.

The short 17-second clip, shared by TikToker @jamesnjamie, is accompanied by the song Sunroof by Nicky Youre and Dazy. The video included text overlay that read, "I saw this at Lowe's."

The video started with a man as he carried his presumed granddaughter in a blue bucket in one hand while holding an item in the other as he walked around a Lowe's store.

The grandpa perused the aisles while carrying the young child, who appeared to be a toddler, in tow. The camera zoomed in, and the girl smiled, clearly enjoying the free ride around the store. She put her hands on the outer edge of the bucket as she looked around. The man turned a corner down a new aisle and looked back before the video cut off.
