Video of baby running with recording phone goes viral

VIDEO: YOUTUBE

It's one thing to have your cell phone stolen; it's another to have it done by a laughing baby.

The Huffington Post reported on a video which captured what it called "a wobbly-legged bandit leading a frantic, giggle-filled chase while running through a home with the recording phone pointed at the baby's hysterical face".

The Youtube video, published on Wednesday (Nov 23), has garnered more than 486,000 views.

At one point the baby stumbles and nearly drops the phone, but he gets up quickly and runs off again. The Huffington Post said the woman behind the baby is his presumed mother, who laughed along with him.

One viewer, ImSoLament, called the video an "alternate ending to The Blairwitch Project".
