    Well, I was just minding my business when the magic of the YouTube algorithm served me up something I had no idea existed.

    "Did you know this exists?" I asked a friend.

    "Not really, but I saw a TikTok of Dylan Sprouse making out with an old man," they replied.

    And the rest is history.


    Daddy is an 18-minute short film by Christian Coppola (who happens to be a distant relative of Francis Ford Coppola).

    Dylan Sprouse plays an escort who gets hired by an 80-year-old man, played by Ron Rifkin, who goes to the Plaza Hotel to celebrate his first anniversary apart from his deceased wife.

    It's emotional.
