One parent thought it might be a good idea to bring their little one into the middle of a Slipknot circle pit – and it looks like the kid had a blast!

Below you will find footage from a Slipknot show that took place on April 9th in Minneapolis, MN; while the band are playing their song “Heretic Anthem,” the camera focuses in on a small child on top of their parent’s shoulders. Said child and parent happen to be in the middle of a circle pit and the kid looks like they are having a ball. As a bunch of metalheads circle them, other metalheads are coming up to the kid and throwing them the metal horns – with the little dude throwing horns right back.

It is an adorable and awesome moment you can see for yourself via the video below:
