Jack-In-The-Box Scares Baby; Why Are People Laughing? [VIDEO]

Why is a crying baby funny?

I get while some videos go viral. A cute kitten doing some funny. A cute kid doing something funny.

OK, I don’t really get why some videos go viral and others don’t. I have tons of video of my cute kid doing funny things and I’m fairly certain no one but our immediate family will watch the video, and even we get bored of them after a time. I’m sure there are studies on the reasoning of viral videos, but I haven’t seen them.

I’m curious why this video has gone viral. A 1-year-old baby is playing with a jack-in-the-box, and when it pops up, she’s so scared she starts crying. And people are eating it up.

Will you please watch and tell me why a crying, scared baby is funny, because I haven’t a clue:
