This Kid Licking NBC’s Camera At The Olympics Is Relatable For Parents Everywhere

Sure, the focus should be on the incredible athletes showcasing their talents at the 2018 Winter Olympics. But the internet has found its latest star and it’s a child trying to lick the lens of NBC’s camera. It’s become a viral moment that made many people — especially parents — laugh and probably cringe. Because yeah: Parents know exactly what this is like.

An insatiable curiosity is what makes being a kid so interesting, but it can also be exhausting for parents.

Once this video was posted online, moms and dads everywhere began to chime in.

“As a mother who spent years saying ‘and don’t lick anything or anyone’ every time we went somewhere, I love this kid,” one mom wrote on Twitter:

Despite his mom telling him to stop, this kid just kept on trying to get in front of the camera, and people can’t stop laughing about it:

There are some (likely non-parents) out there who just don’t understand what’s going on:

It’s not always the parents that are doing the wrangling. Sometimes the kids try to control the situations and feel “embarrassed” by their parents. Even celebrities aren’t immune to this kind of thing! Another major “break the internet” parent-child moment was when six-year-old Blue Ivy told Beyoncé and Jay-Z to stop clapping at the Grammys.
