By now, I’m sure many of you have seen the epic viral video from Hungrybear9562. If you haven’t, it’s well worth the three minutes and thirty seconds.
I’m completely intrigued by the reasons why this video is so popular. Personally, I love it. I’ve shared it with tons of people. First, because it makes me laugh. But there is something else very appealing about this clip. Forget whatever preconceived notions you may have formulated about the mental state of the author. I think this video is so viral because on some level, we would all love to be like this guy—completely and totally amazed with childlike wonder at something so seemingly trivial. What if all of us reacted like Hungrybear9562 to seemingly trivial things? How would the world be different?
