It’s easy to become famous now a days. All you need is a camera, a good idea, and a Youtube account. It’s even easier to become famous if you’re a child or animal.
Babies, toddlers, and children are usually big hits because they are cute and innocent. They do things out of trial and error and say things without putting much thought into it. Watching a screaming two-year-old run out of a room with his diaper on his head can be hilarious. But watching a grunting twenty-one-year-old charge his way out of his apartment with a diaper on his head can be a bit disturbing. Children make us laugh because 'They don’t know any better.' So when they say something funny, we can’t get enough of it. It’s comedy in its purest form.
Videos of dogs, cats, pandas, and anything else with fur and a cute face quickly spread from computer screen to computer screen. There are thousands upon thousands of videos showing puppy-kitten love, own-reflection-freak-outs, and amazing talent on four legs. Just like kids, animals are cute and innocent; 'They don’t know any better.' And thanks to the advancement of voice over technology, animals now have the ability to talk! Youtuber Klaatu42 specializes and revolves his channel on this gold mine of cuteness. The view count of the video below says it all: 63,000,000+.
