Got a terrible case of the Monday blues? Work have you stuck in a rut? Are your kids acting like spoiled little monsters? This viral video of baby Buzz Fletcher laughing at dandelions will turn your life – or at least your day – around.
Little Buzz – yes, he's got an adorable name, too – is seen in this video recorded by his father, laughing hysterically at dandelions. For the life of us, we couldn't figure out what's so funny about the inconspicuous little roadside weeds, but that doesn't matter. As you'll see in this video, Buzz will have you out of the grumps as quickly as he's got his father in fits of giggles, thanks to his preciously contagious laughter.

The video was uploaded by blue-haired father Tom Fletcher, who happens to be a famous English singer-songwriter and guitarist for the bands McFly and McBusted, a children's book author and a YouTube vlogger to boot, with nearly half a million subscribers.
Fletcher posted his son's video on April 25. Just three days after the video was uploaded, it had gotten more than a million views on YouTube and 13 million views elsewhere — proof that the world loves a baby laughing uncontrollably for reasons we cannot imagine.
The two-minute clip of this baby bursting in laughter at the sight of dandelion florets blowing on the wind is more than worth your time. The video starts off fairly ordinary. First, you see a blue-haired man carrying a baby on his back over a walk in the meadows. Then Buzz's father picks up a dandelion and blows at it. The little boy cracks up into delightful fits of laughter, pulling his father in for the ride as well.
"This is why being a dad is awesome," Fletcher wrote in his description of the video. "This is the first time my son Buzz has ever seen a dandelion... I think he liked it."
On Twitter, Fletcher couldn't contain his happiness that his son's laughter has had such a positive impact — if only for two minutes and seven seconds.
"Can't believe over 13 million people have seen the video of me and Buzz in just over 24 hours," he wrote. "That's lots of peeps... Thanks...
"To be fair, I've watched this one quite a few times myself. Still makes me genuinely LOL," he added.
"Can't keep up with all the places our laughing video is being shared," he said. "Getting messages from all over the planet. Thanks Earth."
If this video doesn't melt your world-weary, stress-ridden heart, nothing will.
