A video of a puppy playing with a couple of butterflies has been called “majestic” and “the most beautiful video in the world” by the people on TikTok.
Footage shared on the social media site on July 3rd by a woman named Gaby, known online as Spicymexicanbean, features the cute puppy holding a tennis ball in its mouth.
The pet, called Gordo, drops the ball instantly when a pair of yellow and black butterflies tumble down from a tree.
Spellbound by its flapping wings, the puppy’s face follows their movements while one lands on its nose.
The dog quietly lowers its head and it flies away and then Gordo looks up at his new floating friends.
Gaby, who is from Boise, Idaho, subtitled the video: “Hello” next to a butterfly emoji.
She also explained some facts people wanted to know about the pooch, and wrote below, “For anyone who may ask, he’s a corgi / lab / border collie and his name is Gordo.”
The video went viral online, has been viewed 16.1 million times and received 4.7 million likes.
Lots of people went to the comment section to share their joy with the healthy video.
One TikTok user, Andrea, wrote, “This is literally the most beautiful video in the world.”
Another person, Kayla, added, “Aaa and I started crying, such a lovely, gentle puppy. Thanks for sharing.”
Alexis Pollock gushed: “I can’t believe you got this on video !!!”
Keycaps & Kawaii typed: “This is by no means a new ‘Nintendogs’ ad. It’s just too perfect.”
Ivy stated, “The fact that he cares so much about these beauties makes my heart smile. He’s so tender and careful.”
Mimi commented: “Oh my god … the most beautiful majestic moment ever. Just pure angelic sweet love.”
Heyo wrote, “Maybe this world isn’t that cruel.”
And if you love seeing dogs having fun, you might also like a video recently posted to TikTok of four Dachshunds cooling off in a paddling pool.
The footage was posted on the social app by Daneandadoxie on June 25th and shows the cute pets, also known as sausage dogs, playing together in the shallow water.
The text overlaying the clip reads “Hot Dog Summer” which is clearly a nod to Megan Thee Stallion’s song “Hot Girl Summer” as well as the nickname for the dog breed.
The clip has been viewed more than 3.9 million times since then and received 502,000 likes.
Newsweek asked Gaby for a comment.
