A 22-month-old toddler saw a Batman statue and tried getting its attention by repeatedly calling the figure “da-da”.

In a video posted on Reddit captioned “When you’re trying to get your dada’s attention but he just stands there like a statue…”, the mom can be heard asking her baby daughter who she was looking at. “It’s dada,” the little girl replied, referring to her father.

When the toddler kept on repeating ‘da-da’, the mom asked her to “say ‘hi’ to him [Batman statue]” and the girl obliged. After saying ‘hi’, the little girl kept on repeating ‘da-da’ until the end of the clip.

While the mom and the dad of the child found the whole thing cute and funny, many Reddit users believed that the girl was trying to mutter the word “Batman” but it just sounded like “da-da”. The father replied, writing: “She doesn’t know ‘Batman’. She has never seen anything Batman and we don’t have anything Batman around the house.”

When other Reddit subscribers also commented that the girl was definitely trying to call Batman, the toddler’s dad immediately came to her defense once again. “She was definitely, 100% saying “dada” – she doesn’t know anything about Batman,” the dad insisted. “I’ve never dressed up as Batman. I don’t even have Batman stuff around the house. The only thing I can think of is the huge muscles that resemble mine.”

While other users kept on arguing about what the toddler really said, Reddit user named Eyes_Tee, on the other hand, was focusing on the kid’s talking skills.

“Is it me or is this kid really well spoken for her age? I didn’t expect to understand as much of what that kid said as I did,” Eyes_Tee wrote, to which the girl’s dad proudly replied: “She does pretty good. She is 22 months and has the basics down.”

At the end of the day, the video was still cute regardless if the baby girl really believes that the Batman statue is her dad or not.

Did You Ever Notice These Actors Were Replaced On Your Favorite Shows?

The thing about television shows—especially long-running ones—is that they’re on the air for years at a time.

Here are the television actors who were replaced like it was nothing—some of them are sure to surprise you.
