The second episode of Aziz Ansari's terrific new Netflix series, Master of None, revolves around our often complicated relationships with our parents. The episode, told through a series of flashbacks and centered on a multi-family dinner, contains easily some of the most moving moments of the wildly popular comedian's increasingly bragworthy career. Aziz decided to double down on the hyper-real sentiments at the heart of that episode on Wednesday, sharing a selfie he snapped with his dad after appearing on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert:
The 'gram was fittingly captioned with a three-paragraph meditation on his evolving relationship with both of his parents, a heartwarming expression spurred by his dad’s backstage admission that he mostly agreed to appear in Master of None just to be able to spend more time with his son:
My dad took off most of his vacation time for the year to act in Master of None. So I’m really relieved this all worked out. Tonight after we did Colbert together he said: “This is all fun and I liked acting in the show, but I really just did it so I could spend more time with you.” I almost instantly collapsed into tears at the thought of how much this person cares about me and took care of me and gave me everything to give me the amazing life I have. I felt like a total piece of garbage for all the times I haven’t visited my parents and told them I wanted to stay in New York cause I’d get bored in SC. I’m an incredibly lucky person and many of you are as well. Not to beat a dead horse here and sorry if this is cheesy or too sentimental but if your parents are good to you too, just go do something nice for them. I bet they care and love you more than you realize.
Family goals right here.
