The internet can pummel you with plenty of content that has zero hugs.
Some of these things are worthy of your attention. But they are far less important than a viral video of two toddlers hugging after absolutely losing their minds at the sight of each other. The pint-sized humans are bringing cheer to the picture in New York City. In fact, it’s the most adorable thing surfacing on Facebook this week.
Cue the internet meltdown.
Turns out, they are “besties,” and the original video post has been shared more than 2,000 times.
It’s simple. They see each other. They react with high levels of glee, and they run to one another. They embrace. One of them has a toy. It’s mildly interesting. They erupt in laughter because life is a celebration. And they run together.
Their happiness is contagious, and has been shared by Alexndria Ocasio-Cortez and others.
