UTAH -- A Utah father took an unusual approach to teach his daughter a lesson in modesty.

Scott Mackintosh was fed up with his daughter wearing Daisy Duke-style short shorts, so he cut the legs off a pair of his own jeans so high that the pockets stuck out.

 He then wore a "Best Dad Ever" T-shirt and wore the outfit during a family outing. 

Mackintosh's daughter, Myley, was so embarassed she said she stayed in the family's car instead of joining them when they went out for milk shakes. 

Still, that didn't stop Myley from posting the photo to her Tumblr page. The photo went viral. 

“My mom told me to change my ‘slutty’ shorts before we went to dinner,” Myley wrote on Tumblr. “I said no. So my dad cut his jeans to fit in. We went to dinner and then mini golf like this.”

 Mackintosh spoke to an NBC reporter about his motivation for wearing the shorts.

"I was absolutely going for shock value and a little bit of embarassment," he said. 

According to Mackintosh, Myley has been better about her clothing choices since the incident.
