When an inventive young filmmaker turns to a 6-year-old for inspiration, the result is likely to be a masterpiece. And "The Scared is Scared," made by Bianca Giaever, based on 6-year-old Asa Baker-Rouse's improv storytelling, certainly stands up to the hype and fanfare around the web. The only barrier to soaking up Asa's genius? At just under eight minutes, the video is practically an epic in the genre of viral content. For this reason, we've chosen five of our favorite bits and laid them out for you below.

1. When in doubt, repeat the same word several times for emphasis. Also, just be honest if you're not sure about what's going on.

scared is scared 7

2. "You don't really wanna go when something's closing [for instance, a swimming pool], cuz then you'll have to wait to go back there." Truth.

scared is scared

3. When things you love are ending, try not to sweat it. "If, like, something feels like you're closing, you should just say, 'OK, I'm fine.'"

scared is scared 3

4. Banish your fears by thinking happy thoughts. In the immortal words of Asa: "The Scared is scared of things you like." These things may include, as in Asa's case, pizza, juice, meringues, a chocolate chip cookie, an oatmeal cookie shaped like a piano keyboard, milk.

the scared is scared

5. Coherence in storytelling is overrated.

Now, go find yourself eight minutes and watch the whole thing. It's worth it, promise.
