Ford sings a karaoke lullaby to his unborn child every night for 39 consecutive nights, in the run up to the baby's due date. Using the Wii game Boogie and allowing the viewer to hear only his unabashed voice, not the backing tune of the song.
The viewer may be able to see Mollie kick and dance in response to the singing in the earlier songs but as she gets bigger and runs out of space the movement becomes less obvious.
Ford’s wife went into labour around 3 hours after the last (and most difficult/ badly sung) Mollie Boogie song was performed.
