A Nashville native studying abroad found a unique way to keep his family from missing him, by using a life-size cardboard cutout.
Susan Talley received a life-sized cardboard cut-out of her son Dalton, who in London.
To say she enjoyed the gift would be an understatement; Susan has taken the cut-out to different spots and posted the photos online.
While the real Dalton was across the pond, his stand-in was having fun on lower Broadway, playing the "Escape Game" and hunting Easter eggs with his cousins.
Susan posted to social media with the cardboard Dalton in each situation, even going as far as wrapping a towel around his waist after a pretend shower.
The concept has gotten so popular Dalton's "sub" earned a fan page on Facebook.
