December 30, 2012: A US dad’s time lapse video of an afternoon at home with his son dubbed a ‘comprehensive study’ of father and son time has gone viral on YouTube with over 10,000 views.

A US father's time-lapse video showing how his orderly living room become a scene of chaos when he is left home alone with his toddler son has gone viral with over 90,000 views.

Emio Tomeoni posted the video online for his wife Stephanie Ramos on December 23, explaining that he made it as a "comprehensive report on the happenings of father and son while mama is away for the afternoon".

The video has struck a chord with internet users and has since been viewed more than 90,000 times.

The footage shows Mr Tomeoni, from Missouri, letting his 21-month-old son Xavier spill a large box of plastic toys across the carpet.

As if the pile of play things is not enough, he goes on to bring out a child's play chair, a large inflatable racing track and a huge chest of toys, among other things, which he then helps his son scatter across the room.

At one point Mr Tomeoni is seen sitting on the living room table as his son eats a snack, spilling yoghurt on both their clothes.

The end of the video shows the father running about in a frenzy of cleaning.

Amazingly he manages to restore the room to its former spotless glory before his wife gets home.

Mr Tomeoni told ABC News he predicted his wife would love the video.

"I looked at it when I was done with it, and my thought was 'My wife is going to love this' - mainly because the house was clean at the end of the day and I changed his diaper," he said.

Perhaps most amazing of all is how he manages to clean up the tornado of toys in the moments before his wife comes home.

The positive feedback from people online was also a welcome surprise, with many people praising him for spending the day playing with his son and not letting him to watch TV.
