The search is over.
This video, of 2-year-old Claire Konkel wishing her mommy a happy birthday, is officially the cutest video on the whole entire Internet. Sorry, kittens. Sorry, babies eating lemons. You lose.
"I sat her down in the living room and we had a conversation for about 40 minutes," he recalls. "About Mommy and toys and food." He says Claire even picked out her own outfit for her "movie."
Dan's wife, Stacey, is a working mom, so Dan spends most days with Claire while her mommy is at work, GMA reports, a subject the duo touched upon in the video.
"I started talking about when Mommy's not here," Dan explained. "I said, 'She works so hard, doesn't she?' She was like, 'Mommy works so hard,' almost on the verge of tears and I was on the other side of the camera in the living room like, 'Oh my goodness.' It just poured out."
Dan condensed the video to a minute and a half of pure adorableness and secretly uploaded it to his wife's iPad with a note saying, "Hey, watch me." Her reaction? "She said it was the best birthday present she ever got."
Good luck topping it next year, Dan. And good luck topping this video ever, Internet.
And if you prefer your adorable little kids with a side of potty talk, this is also very cute:
