"Selfie Dad" becomes Internet-famous for mocking daughter's "sexy" photos

It's something that makes many parents cringe -- teenagers posting provocative selfies to their social media accounts. For Spokane, Washington dad Chris "Burr" Martin, the best way to send the message to his 19-year-0ld daughter Cassie to tone down the "sexy" selfies was to post some of his own.

Martin, 47, took to Instagram to post side-by-side selfies with his daughter's original photos, recreating the provocative poses in a distinctly mocking way. He even draws a temporary tattoo to mimic his daughter's.

Took me 3 days to get all the ink off.lol

All pouty faces and smeared makeup, Martin caused quite the stir on social media, where his photos quickly went viral.

Rest assured, Cassie was not the only one of Martin's kids to get the mocking treatment on social media. In a separate Instagram post, he copied one of his son's sunglass-wearing selfies in a tongue-in-cheek birthday post.

Happy birthday to my boy
