Baby Is Seriously Not Impressed With His Brother's Attempt To Sing 'Happy Birthday' (VIDEO)

Here's the thing about babies. They're probably not going to sing "Happy Birthday" for your friend. Exhibit A: the infant featured in this clip, Casper Copeland, is clearly unmotivated by his brother Oliver's early attempts to get the song rolling -- or perhaps offended by an in-your-face demand to "sing!" -- and he does his best to get kicked off the set.

The siblings have humor in their genes. Before making this masterpiece of a video, dad Brad Copeland wrote and produced for "Arrested Development" and was tapped to write and direct CollegeHumor's first movie. So it's unsurprising that the denouement of this work is laugh-out-loud funny. Spoiler alert: the baby is ultimately replaced by a more complacent surprise stand-in.

Next time, if his brother wants a more willing accomplice, we have a few nominations.

CORRECTION: This article originally misidentified the older brother in the video, Oliver, as a girl. Baby Casper is no doubt even less impressed with us than he was with his big brother!
