Remember how when we were in school, we’d run corridors to catch a glimpse of our crushes? Remember plotting reasons with your best friend on how to go to their class only so you can feel the mad flutter of your heart?


This animated video that is doing the rounds of the internet will bring back all those feels, and then some more. The short film, In a Heartbeat, is set in an elementary school and depicts a boy dealing with his crush on another boy in his class. 

The viral video is everything you need to get a dose of happy for the day; it’s cute, adorable, nostalgic, and warms your heart. Which is probably why it reached around 10 million views on YouTube in just three days!

Created by Ringling College of Art and Design students Beth David and Esteban Bravo, the film was made after raising money through crowd-funding, put together as their computer animation thesis.
