Life is heavy, man. And this little guy is feeling it all.
Mark Blitch was in the car with his 4-year-old son, Jackson, recently when A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera's "Say Something" came on the radio. "Say Something" a traumatizingly sad song and really should be played after a disclaimer telling you to change the channel if you don't want to spend the rest of the day absolutely wrecked with grief.
Here is how Jackson reacted. Fun fact: This is how we react too:
U.S. & World
"My four-year old heard the song come on, so I changed it," Mark says. "But he wanted it back on for some reason. Here is the first moment that he has been 'moved.'"
And before those self-righteous, miserable few among you flood the comments saying that Mark is a bad parent for letting his child cry (like here), Jackson says multiple times that he is OK and wants to listen to the song, even though it's a "sad song." He is not being tortured. He is a sweet boy being moved by music.
Xtina gives the video a (less weepy) thumbs up too:
