A little girl discovered her shadow live on film, and it’s equal parts hilarious and adorable.
The video shows the child noticing a dark, girl-shaped figure aping her every move, leaving her to do the only thing she could think of: Running away. But, shadows being what they are, she couldn’t escape, and subsequently launched into an epic, panicked meltdown. We can only hope that her terror gave way to a teaching moment, and that she’ll be giggling to shadow puppets in no time.
