HOUSTON -

A Houston father's YouTube video has gone viral after making his son's dream come true -- a play-date with Spider-Man.

Last week, the dad surprised his 3-year-old toddler, Oliver, dressed up as Spider-Man.

Dad said he was inspired by Adam Sandler's movie, "Big Daddy," where Sandler dressed up as an action-hero in order to creatively make a boy he's caring for do what he's told.

Dad said he and Oliver played with toys and because he behaved, four days later, the two of them visited a trampoline park, both dressed as their favorite comic book hero.

As of Friday morning, the video had already been viewed more than 100,000 times on YouTube.
