Boy Successfully Starts The Wave at Football Game, His Joy Is Melting Hearts Online

A heartwarming video of a little boy starting the wave at a football game has gone viral online, having been watched by more than 6.4 million people.

The footage was shared to TikTok by a woman named Kaitlyn, known on the app as kaitlynkaitlynkaitlyn111, on October 3.

It begins with the camera focusing in on a young boy and his mom standing in the crowd of Green Bay Packers fans at their recent game against the Pittsburgh Steelers at the Lambeau Field stadium in Wisconsin.

The child then turns to face the stands before shouting down from three and punching the air.

His actions start the wave, where people lift their arms in the air to create a ripple effect through the crowds, which traveled all around the stadium.

What makes the video so adorable is the happiness the boy clearly experiences at his achievement as he high-fives his mother with glee.

Text overlaying the footage reads: "To the little boy who started the wave.... you are going places buddy."

She then captioned her clip, which can be watched here, writing: "He should put that on his resumé #packers #football."

Kaitlyn also added: "Some of you don't understand how difficult it is to start a wave when you are 1 of 70,000 people in the stadium..."

The positive moment has gone viral online, having attracted more than 882,800 likes and more than 1,750 comments.

Many people rushed to the comments section to share their thoughts about the heartwarming moment.

Another video filmed at a football game that recently went viral was a clip of fans in Miami, who managed to catch a cat in an American flag.

In Twitter footage shot during Miami Hurricanes' home opener against Appalachian State footage, we can see that the animal is dangling from the façade on the upper deck by one paw.

Unable to hold on any longer the cat plunges to the deck below and is luckily caught by fans in the stand below using a flag as a net.

As the black and white pet bounces on the flag, the whole stadium erupted into cheers and rapturous applause.
