    Video: YouTube

    In early 2011, this video of two babies seemingly talking to each other in complete gibberish hit the front page of Reddit, leading it to be posted pretty much everywhere else on the internet and then on television a few weeks later.

    Remixes and other videos were made immediately, most notably by comedian Patton Oswalt. With over 200 million views, the video has made the babies involved some of the most internet-famous babies in history. It's like they're making fun of us. In the right state of mind, this video could lead you to an existential crisis.

    The Scared Baby

    The Scared Baby
    Video: YouTube

    This little guy has become one of the most well-known GIFs used regularly to express surprise or disgust.

    His name is Emerson, and the popular GIF came from a viral video off of YouTube featuring little Emerson playing happily with his throne of toys, that is, until his mother would blow her nose. This would scare the baby temporarily, reacting with such surprise that the internet immediately fell in love with him.

    The most well-known moment comes at 00:43

    Success Kid

    You've seen "Success Kid" before. Plenty of times. He's a little man named Sammy whose mom took a picture of him that went up on Getty Images in 2007. Then in 2008, the popular photoshop of "Success Kid" (then known as the "I Hate Sand Castles" kid) made the rounds on sites like MySpace.

    Once this took off, Sammy became extremely common throughout the internet as a picture anyone can use to express their excitement at something relatively mundane.

    And once he was made into an Advice Animal (first seen in this form as uploaded to Reddit), much like most other Advice Animal memes, he became ubiquitous around the web.

    There's nothing better than a baby's laughter. This little baby is just having himself a great time listening to (who we presume is) his dad making sounds. This could easily be the best day of his life so far.

    He was also one of the first babies to go viral once YouTube began, garnering over 150 million views across multiple videos, getting on countless news stations and even being the choice clip shown to The Queen of England upon her visiting YouTube headquarters in 2008.
