It’s not often in life a viral video makes you cry like a baby. I mean really cry, not the little sob “that was sad” type or the watery eyes you get when “those ads” come on TV.
No this was proper crying, tears of joy and of sadness because you’ve just watched that one video that makes you realise that not everything in life is bad or sad or makes you mad.
I clicked the video because Robert Downey Jnr was in it. Iron Man. The hot Hollywood actor.
What I didn’t expect was to witness a beautiful story that filled my heart.
The fact that this litle boy takes life in his stride, that an engineer has made it his life’s work to help people and that Iron Man gave us one out-take we will never ever forget makes this my favourite viral video ever.
With watery eyes and a lump in my throat, I give you the fabulous Robert Downey Jnr and the even more amazing 7-year-old Alex.
