This Baby’s Mind Is Completely Blown By a Remote Control

He is probably as confused about what all of the buttons do as we are

Watch this baby look completely perplexed and petrified whenever a remote control is held up in front of his face. When the gadget is moved away, the tot instantly calms down as if nothing ever happened. Mariah Carey’s “We Belong Together” is playing in the background, which is ironic because, as you can see from the baby’s face, he doesn’t seem to want to be anywhere near the device.

Although, in all fairness, remote controls have so many buttons these days that most adults are still confused about how all of them work – especially when they hit a wrong button, accidentally switch off the system, and are desperately trying to figure out how to get their TV or movie back on the screen.

This youngster’s frightened expression also reminds us of the 2011 YouTube video boasting over 56 million views that shows a baby looking absolutely terrified whenever his mother blows her nose. Refresh your memory of that viral clip below:
