(RNN) - It may be hard to get a group of working men to sing "Part of your World" from The Little Mermaid soundtrack, but not this group of men.

A video originally posted by Life of Dad shows a group of men consisting of firefighters, doctors, a barber, a Marine, helicopter pilot, construction workers and a janitor embracing their inner Disney - while on the job.

The video's co-creators, Tom Riles and Patrick Quinn, said in an interview with Yahoo News, "Besides all of my music, I have princess songs and kids' stuff on my iPod for when we are on long car rides. Once you have a daughter, no matter how tough, thuggish, or introverted you might be, you're going to play princess with reckless abandon in front of others knowing that if anyone sees you they're going to understand. Especially if that someone is another dad."

Riles said he put the video on the web to prove dads will do anything to keep their kids happy.

"Dads today can be tough and masculine," Riles told Yahoo. "But we will also do anything to make our kids happy. Even if that means singing a really girlie song and putting it on the Internet."

The final seconds of the video features a young girl mixing pancake batter with her dad. She says "Daddy, sing it again," and they begin to sing again. That alone could bring tears to the manliest man's eyes.

So who gets the credit for the masterpiece that put huge smiles on dozens of little girl's faces? Riles says his sisters.

"My sisters all loved The Little Mermaid growing up, and I must say, the Disney films of that generation were the best. Most of the men in the video have kids, and those who don't have nieces who made sure they knew all the lyrics."
