I am so glad that YouTube was invented otherwise how could we get such gems of beautiful and heartfelt emotions in the form of videos. Ever so often a video goes viral that touches our hearts, makes us teary eyed and leaves our hearts filled with love.
Recently, a lot of people have been sharing Sharman Joshi’s tribute to mothers video, which is of course heavily inspired by the #WorldsToughestJob video. Don’t know what we are talking about? Here are the Best 7 videos on Motherhood that are my personal favorites including World’s Toughest Job.
Warning! Bring out the tissues because some of them WILL make you cry!
Best 7 Videos About Motherhood
7. The Most Beautiful Miracle
If there was ever a doubt, that babies bond with their mothers even before they are born, this video completely blew that off the park. A newborn baby refuses to let go of the mother and if that doesn’t make you want to pop out another baby then what will!
6. The Second Kid
I don’t have a second child so I wouldn’t know but I have heard from the other moms about the “second kid phenomenon”. The second time around every mom is an expert and much more easygoing. I love this funny video series from Luvs.
5. World’s Toughest Job
Well, clearly the inspiration behind Sharman Joshi’s video, world’s toughest job went crazily viral! An advertising agency in Boston posted a fake job ad with requirements such as; 135 hours per week, constant mobility, communication skills, sometimes standing up for long hours and not to forget, no breaks, no holidays and no time offs.
24 incredulous people showed up for the interview and were shocked to hear the demands of the job which demanded crazy hours, guaranteed no sleep and no break ever! Some interviewees asked if such a job was even legal and when they were told that billions already did this job, the responses were well truly emotional!
4. Let It Go- The Mom Version
Disney’s Frozen had the superlative “Let it go” track which was instantly parodied into many versions. But my favorite is this Mom version performed by Sarah Olsen for a Granger Community Church Arts team performance. With lyrics like
“the baby’s crying like a tiny Jekyll and Hyde, never sleeping in, heaven knows I tried”
“it’s funny how such chaos comes from people oh so small, yet the joy that overwhelms me when they learn to kick a ball” and
“will you slow down before you end up in a cast, I’ve said a hundred times, the trash goes in the trash”
Moms all around immediately connected with this bittersweet video and pushed it to viral category.
3. The Truth About Moms
Mothers are their own worst critics. We are always guilty about something. Whether it’s our shouting or our business or our ability to stay calm in some situations, we are always ready to find faults with us. But like I talked about in our post, being a good enough mom, the kids have only one mother and they love her unconditionally. Watch this video about what moms think about themselves vs what their kids think of them and don’t blame me if you end up sobbing hysterically (I did!)
2. The Motherhood
So you think a mom can’t rap eh! Yet, here is our mother from the hood breaking into a full on gangsta’ rap. This video by Fiat 500L has some hilarious lyrics. A few samples below
” I express like the best from these holes in my chest, wear my nursing bra, like a bulletproof vest”
” My decor was smart, my taste was extra picky. Now my surfaces are cluttered, and nearly always sticky” and finally
“It’s the motherhood, it’s another hood. And once you’re in the club, you’re in for good.
Go from fighting nappy rash to endless doctor queues. And I’m flooding up your timeline with my baby news.”
1. Thank you Mom. Pick them back up
P & G’s Thank You Mom video made for the 2012 London Olympics was the one that started it all. This P&G video made for the Sochi winter games is pure gold. It shows how when it comes to picking them back up, no one is better than mothers.
