Adorable video has gone viral online, with millions of hits

Love, apparently, begins at birth. A video that has gone wildly viral in just a few days shows a newborn baby being introduced to its sleeping mother after a C-section, as the nurse tries to remove the child for his washing, the child clings frantically to his mom's face - the outside world is a bit of a shock, and he wants his mommy!

Little is known about the mother and child, though a voice in the background of the video seems to be speaking Spanish or Portuguese.

Other popular viral videos include goats screaming like humans to popular musicians. On extraordinary viral video featured an interview Charles Ramsey, who lived across the street from odious kidnapper Ariel Castro, who kept three women prisoners in his home. He told one reporter,
"I heard screamin.' I'm eating my McDonalds. I come outside, I see this girl going nuts trying to get out of her house, so I go on the porch and she says help me get out, I've been here a long time." McDonalds later offered him free burgers for life.

Eventually the nurse removes the baby who hollers in protest at its temporary separation from mom.

Other viral videos featured coverage of a meteorite striking Russia. Dashboard cameras revealed shots of a meteor entering the earth's atmosphere and streaking across the morning sky. The space rock, caught nonchalantly by a driver speeding down a highway in Chelyabinsk, brought with it a flash brighter than the sun itself, not to forget the window-shattering crash.

And of course, who can forget South Korean pop star Psy with his most-viral video, "Gangnam Style."
