Check Out the Incredible Moment Toddler Spots her own Shadow - and is TERRIFIED by It (Video)


This lil toddler has become a viral internet sensation after a video of her heartbreaking but hilarious reaction to her own shadow was shared  on Facebook. 

On Thursday, Facebook user Mike Jacobs posted a video of his daughter fumbling and stumbling around a parking lot, with a female voice -- presumably the tagged Sharain Jackson-Jacobs -- asking if the little girl is ready for a nap.

Seeing her own shadow, the toddler screams and attempts to run away from her shadow which, sadly, follows her and causes her to tumble backward in an adorable little fit. The video has racked up over 9 million views as of Friday afternoon. 

Watch it after the cut.
