A daddy’s work is never done. For Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, his fatherly Halloween duties called for him to don a Pikachu costume so his daughter could get a visit from her favorite character.

In a shamelessly cute Instagram post, the Jumanji and Fast 8 star can be seen channeling the beloved Pokémon critter while dancing tirelessly for his toddler, Jasmine, who was born last December.

According to the caption, Jasmine couldn’t get enough of her dad’s fancy footwork: “What Pikachu didn’t know was that Jazzy would start crying when he stopped dancing and demanded he continue to shake his tail with a loud ‘EH!’. So, Pikachu danced over.. and over.. and over.. and over… and over.. again.”
