Last week, Today show hosts Matt Lauer and Meredith Viera got the chance to interview Micah, the laughing baby that has become an Internet sensation after a YouTube video was posted of Micah laughing.
Here’s the video:
We all know laughter is contagious but I was simply blown away that this video, capturing Micah laughing while his dad ripped up a job rejection letter, was able to draw over 9 million viewers.
A quick YouTube search quickly confirmed my doubts: it turns out that the internet is filled with videos of laughing babies and for some odd reason, the ripping of paper is a great source of laughter.
So in honour of all things baby and funny, the team at iWatchLife has compiled the list of most-viewed laughing baby videos from YoutTub.e
1. Charlie Bit Me -Again! 289,026,032 views
2. Laughing Baby Ripping Paper, 37,257,496 views
3. Baby Laughing at the Wii, 18,606,720 views
Funny isn’t it? Kind of makes me wish I had some footage of myself laughing when I was a baby.
Kind of makes me want to put in a request to the iWatchLife dev team to program our smart cameras to capture a new type event: baby laughing.
If anything, it may just be my way of reaching the 1 million mark on YouTube.
