The Angry Dad in ASL and a Challenge from Keith Wann

There was a video of an angry dad ranting about his disrespectful daughter on FaceBook last week. It wasn't captioned, so many of us were curious exactly what was going on. Here is the ASL interpreted version of the video, courtesy of Keith and Emilia Wann.
Keith also challenges students to step up and start video interpreting other newsworthy and pop culture items into ASL for the Deaf Community. What a concept! Be sure to read what he has to say and the challenge he puts forth below his video:
Let's see more like this! Also, if you would kindly caption them for so many baby boomers who have now become deaf late in life, but aren't fluent in ASL, that would be an added bonus.


  1. huh, interesting video. I bet that daughter is totally livid when she saw her dad shooting her laptop.

    I honestly don't think I could do what the dad did, most likely would have put the laptop under lock and key.

  2. I like your sensible approach, Candy, locking up the laptop. I would have handled it differently myself. I'm pleased to see someone stepped in and made the video in ASL so deaf people could have a clue what it was all about, and what everyone is discussing.
