Toddler Reacts With Amazement at Automatic Doors

By  | 

Everything is new to all of us at one time or another, and sliding doors to a toddler can seem like pure magic! That was the case when 21-month-old Azrael encountered automatic sliding doors at the grocery store for the first time. The Dallas, Texas grocery store his family attended is more than likely taken for granted in terms of its sliding doors (remember the days when you had to pull and push? Heaven forbid!) but to their son, it was pure amazement.

The video of Azrael’s encounter with the sliding doors was uploaded to YouTube and went viral when viewers saw that he was just amazed that something like this could happen. Captioning the video, his dad wrote, “Took our son to the grocery store and let him walk around for the first time, he was blown away by the automatic doors.” Trying to understand, Azrael screams with delight and runs from door to door. His amazement at something we’ve all taken for granted has taken the internet by storm.

1.5 million viewers, and growing, have watched this sweet video, many having gone on to view others out of the collection, showing Azrael’s innocent and heartwarming reactions to everyday things and some not-so-everyday, like getting ready for an earthquake! Has father has since said in equal amazement, “I didn’t know it was going to blow up like this. It’s all kind of crazy.”
