This cute lil girl is calling her dad on the phone, but he doesn’t appear to be answering. He’s not there.
Her mum takes the phone. She gets upset. Her mum gives her the phone back.
She puts the phone to her ear again and calls for her dad.
She keeps on trying.
Then, as if giving up, she hands the phone back to her mum.
The video cuts to another clip. The little girl’s standing in front of a large screen that’s connected to Skype. All of a sudden, she gets really excited!
It’s “apa”; her dad!
She does a lil dance on the spot, runs to her mum, then runs back to the screen. She says his name again, then runs to her mum.
He waves at her.
She laughs, gets excited again, goes quiet, stares at him, then gets excited again and runs to her mum! Then back to him again!
‘Apa’, she says.
Beautiful video. Touching.
Almost three-quarter of a million views on YouTube – the video’s over a year old and is still being viewed as recently as hours’ ago.
