Your heart can only swell when watching this 2-year-old, fixated on the image of her dad in a pre-recorded video. Dad is in the military and away somewhere, reading her a story, "Farmer Mickey."
At the end he says, "Can I have a hug?" and leans his face into the camera, with his arms outstretched. She puts her arms around the screen and kisses it.
"Sometimes the cuteness of a heartwarming video overpowers the sadness and reality of the situation. This is one of those times," noted BuzzFeed, which highlighted the video Monday.
Indeed, as they say good-bye, the little girl just slightly panics, looking around the TV set for where she might be able to press a magic button to keep daddy in front of her on the screen. Unfortunately, there isn't any.
