Yesterday, Mark Zuckerberg posted a throwback home movie showing the exact moment he found out he got into Harvard. The hilarious clip is filmed by his dad, Edward, and shows their wildly different reactions to the news.

When he finds out he got in, Zuckerberg lets out an incredibly subdued “Yay.” His dad, on the other hand, rightfully freaks out and is overjoyed. Then in true dad fashion, he begins filming the family dog, saying he is now focusing on “the dog who belongs to one of the newest members of the class of Harvard 2006.”

Zuckerberg is famously a Harvard dropout, leaving the school before graduation to focus full time on building Facebook. But on May 25, Harvard will award the tech billionaire an honorary degree as he gives this year’s commencement speech. We bet Zuckerberg’s dad will be sitting front row.
