The video above is of a little boy named Josh totally flipping out over his YouTube "likes." That's right, his YouTube "likes."

Here's the backstory: It was Josh's dream to get just one "like" on his first-ever YouTube video, Yahoo Shine reported. When he got what he'd asked for, he was so excited that he made another video to express his joy.

That adorable video gathered lots of attention on Reddit and quickly went viral. Now, just days later, Josh's YouTube channel, Sir Fedora, has a whopping 68,000 subscribers. He's also racked up more than 40,000 Twitter followers. As for his first video -- it currently has more than 10,000 "likes".

Not too shabby for a kid whose goal was a single "like."

We can all learn a little something from Josh -- and that's to not take anything for granted. By finding joy in the simple things, this kid was able to capture the attention and hearts of viewers around the country.

We genuinely can't wait to see what he'll come up with next. Whatever it is, we'll be sure to "like" it.
