In 2015, actor Chris Pratt posted a video that shows him reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, but his son's decision to join in with his father is what made this clip go viral.

Pratt is shown standing on a front porch reciting the pledge while facing the American flag. His then 2-year-old son Jack immediately decided to join in and went on to recite every single line with his father. He completes the pledge, then finishes by sharing a firm handshake with his dad.

The simple but touching video obviously made a big impression on viewers, because the 34-second clip has racked up thousands of views and likes.

Even though it's a simple and short video, the cuteness factor combined with his son's overwhelming enthusiasm and patriotism makes this likely to be the cutest Pledge of Allegiance ever caught on camera.

Pratt co-parents Jack, who is now 7 years old, with his ex-wife Anna Faris. The couple divorced in 2018 after eight years of marriage. Pratt married Katherine Schwarzenegger, the daughter of actor and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and journalist Maria Shriver, in 2019. The couple welcomed daughter Lyla Maria in August of 2020.

Outside of his acting career, the Parks and RecreationGuardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World star stays busy on his rural Washington farm, which Pratt named Stillwater Ranch. There, he and Katherine raise sheep and pigs.

Pratt will appear next in The Tommorrow War, Jurassic World: Dominion and Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 3.
