We’ve all seen them. On Facebook, in a forwarded email, a link from twitter or one of the hundreds of pop culture sites that scour the Internet for the next great thing.
In this case the next great thing is 13 babies laughing, crying, being attacked by puppies and being subtitled by complete strangers.
I’m not sure any parent knows what will happen to a video when it gets uploaded and unleashed, but the fact that a baby laughing hysterically at ripping paper has almost 28 million views gives me some hope for society.
How many is 28 million? Imagine being in New York City. Now imagine that every 4th person you come across has seen your baby on the Internet. Or that every single person living in the greater Los Angeles area has seen your baby laughing at ripping paper. That’s A LOT of people.
With combined total views of over 100 million (that’s every single man, woman and child in NYC, give or take) here are the best viral baby videos and memes of 2011.
