Kids these days sure do love them some TikTok—almost as much as film buffs love them some sprawling, ponderous films from prestige festival darlings like, say, Nicolas Winding Refn and Alfonso Cuarón. It stands to reason, then, that the children of the world’s greatest visual storytellers are fans of the viral video app, and would love to share that joy with their skeptical parents.

There’s just something truly beautiful about watching a man whose most recent project was a grueling 15-hour movie about humanity’s worst impulses attempt to keep up with his daughter’s choreography, or a two-time Academy Award winner for Best Director placidly eat cereal next to his child while she sways to Bhad Bhabie’s “Geek’d.”
