You probably don’t need to watch this


Seriously, my apologies. (via Stellar Interesting)

    probably not.

    this video has so many layers.

  2. Deron Bauman on August 28th, 2011 at 8:37 pm

    I think you need to watch it.

  3. Luke on August 28th, 2011 at 8:39 pm

    I watched it. Twice. Thanks, Andrew.

    What makes this possible?

  4. Luke on August 28th, 2011 at 8:40 pm

    Also, I feel sad.

  5. Sheila Ryan on August 28th, 2011 at 8:50 pm

    I watched once, Andrew, when you tweeted the link.

    You made the right decision, son.

  6. Daryl Scroggins on August 28th, 2011 at 8:54 pm

    Wow. This wrecks me. I’m right in there as the kid on the couch.

    It wrecked me so much I was unsure whether to post it.

  9. Erica on August 28th, 2011 at 8:58 pm

    I’m so confused. Angry babysitters?

  10. Rick Neece on August 28th, 2011 at 9:01 pm

    I got nothin’. I’m wrecked.

  11. Rick Neece on August 28th, 2011 at 9:01 pm

    It’s a doggy dog world.

  12. Deron Bauman on August 28th, 2011 at 9:13 pm

    Oh, sorry, Luke. I meant the plural you.

  13. Sheila Ryan on August 28th, 2011 at 9:13 pm

    Please forgive me, god whose existence I do not acknowledge. I watched this again.

  14. Cindy Scroggins on August 28th, 2011 at 9:21 pm

    Sometimes life is too big. Too sad.

  15. Kelsey Parker on August 28th, 2011 at 10:44 pm

    My heart. My heart hurts.

  16. Garrett on August 28th, 2011 at 11:12 pm

    I agree, Andrew, good decision to post. I watched it a second time.

  17. Kathy Hilen-Smith on August 29th, 2011 at 9:16 am

    I cannot believe what I just watched, therefore feel compelled to watch again but cannot. Like Rick said, it’s a doggy dog world. You can’t “unsee” something like that. Damn.

    I like the part where they throw the baby on the floor.

  19. Erica on August 29th, 2011 at 10:46 am

    I’m secretly waiting till the office is clear so I can watch it a second time.

  20. Amanda Mae on August 29th, 2011 at 11:50 pm

    I like it. I giggled.

    Don’t tell me how to spend my 2:35, Simone.

    I don’t see the anger part. Teenage-ish older sisters goofing around, baby brother “dancing” in the background. They tried to include him, he took a tumble. A little kick/prod. If this is the worst treatment he gets from his older siblings he’s doing great.

  22. Carole Corlew on September 1st, 2011 at 8:47 am

    And I came to this post today with my intentions before I saw Amanda’s response. My first thought was, well, just shut up Cece. People feel the way they feel and our responses all are valid. But I just had an entirely different take. That’s all.

  23. Cindy Scroggins on September 1st, 2011 at 9:02 am

    The girls make me happy. It’s the obese, dead-eyed baby that breaks my heart.

  24. Daryl Scroggins on September 1st, 2011 at 9:11 am

    Me too, Cindy. I like the jaunty dance moves, the contrived fun surely aimed at feeling better about having to be in such tired looking rooms. But so many needs all around us are never seen for what they are. We do the best we can, but sometimes we see what we should have paid attention to too late. In this case, the kid on the couch is the eternal background of lost causes for me…. I hope he has a good life and will later look back at this clip and laugh along with everybody else.

  25. Carole Corlew on September 1st, 2011 at 10:40 am

    I know, Cindy. Maybe a medical issue we don’t know about. There was another video somewhere and one of the girls had him on her lap and he was singing. That was a happier one of the little boy.

  26. Kelsey Parker on September 1st, 2011 at 11:22 am

    Daryl, Cindy, you said what I think and feel better than I ever could have. It’s not the first time, and every time it makes me so grateful to know and love you both.

  27. Cindy Scroggins on September 1st, 2011 at 11:24 am

    Oh, Kelsey. x
