What Makes You Cry On The Internet?
Don’t even pretend like you don’t know what I’m talking about. Every now and then, you’ll see a video on social media or on YouTube or something and you won’t even realize it’s happening, when BAM! Here comes the waterworks.
For me, it’s a variety of things because I am a little crybaby when it comes to cute things. I’m not really a crybaby about anything else, really. Smack me in the face? No tears. But show me a video of a dog saved from the streets? You better believe I’ll be dabbing my eyes.
Grandpa seeing color for the first time? GET THE KLEENEX.
And have you ever seen those insurance commercials from Thailand? Not a chance.
I’ve seen that one at least seven times. Still gets me. Sometimes I’ll get in a weird kind of black hole of internet clips, where I’ll start to watch one, then another, then another, and before you know it I’ve been watching surprise pregnancy reveal videos for three hours and wondering where the night went.
And if I get started watching dogs reunite with soldiers? Soldiers surprising kids at school, coming back from deployment early? That’s another evening gone.
