Puppy Plays With Butterflies in 'Most Beautiful Video in the World'

A video of a puppy playing with a some butterflies has been called "majestic" and "the most beautiful video in the world" by people on TikTok.

In footage shared to the social media site on July 3 by a woman named Gaby, known online as Spicymexicanbean, the sweet puppy can be seen holding a tennis ball in his mouth.

The pet, whose name is Gordo, immediately drops the ball when a pair of yellow and black butterflies swoop down from a tree.

Transfixed by their fluttering wings, the puppy's face follows their movements as one lands on his nose.

Calmly the dog bows his head, and it flies away and then Gordo gazes up at his new hovering friends.

Gaby, who is from Boise, Idaho, captioned the video: "Hello," alongside a butterfly emoji.

She also clarified some facts people wanted to know about the pooch, writing below: "For everyone asking he's a corgi/lab/border collie and his name is Gordo."

The video has gone viral online, having so far been viewed a whopping 16.1 million times and received 4.7 million likes.

Many people took to the comments section to share their delight at the wholesome video.

One TikTok user, Andrea, wrote: "This is literally the most beautiful video in the world."

Another person, Kayla, added: "Aaaand I started crying such a beautiful gently puppy. Thanks for sharing."

Alexis Pollock gushed: "I can't believe you got that on video!!!"

Keycaps & Kawaii typed: "There's no way this isn't a new 'Nintendogs' ad. It's just too perfect."

Ivy stated: "The fact he is so interested in those beauties is what makes my heart smile. He is so delicate and careful."

Mimi commented: "Oh my gosh... the most beautiful majestic moment ever. Just pure angelic sweet love."

Heyo wrote: "Maybe this world isn't so cruel."

And if dogs enjoying themselves are what you like watching you may also like a video which was recently shared to TikTok of four Dachshunds cooling off in a paddling pool.

Posted to the social app by Daneandadoxie on June 25, the footage shows the sweet pets, also known as sausage dogs, playing together in the shallow water.

Text overlaying the clip reads "Hot dog summer" which is clearly a play on the song "Hot Girl Summer" by Megan Thee Stallion as well as the nickname for the dogs' breed.

The clip has since been viewed more than 3.9 million times and garnered 502,000 likes.

Newsweek have contacted Gaby for comment.
