Be warned that this isn’t like countless other videos, where a baby suddenly becomes calm and maybe sings along a bit to the song in question but little else. This baby’s shift is from sadness to ABSOLUTE TURNT UP GLEE in the course of about a second.

Since its posting Aug. 4, the video has already scored nearly a million views. That’s due in no small part to Perry herself, who tweeted the video early this morning.
