A new viral video has surfaced and it may top the list of cutest clips of 2015 already.

A capuchin monkey is seen acting very much like a human as it gently pets a litter of newborn puppies in the viral video.

The cuteness of the video is making social media users go absolutely crazy in the best way possible.

“I don’t feel so good. I am diabetic and this is too sweet,” wrote YouTube user Pakcik Mubin.

Another social media user HeadMaster3K commented, “Who even dislikes this video?! This is too cute!”

The best moment of the video would have to be when the monkey, whose name is unknown, looks up from petting the puppies, almost as if to indirectly say, “They’re perfect.” At one point the monkey is seen kissing one of the puppies on the head as well.

The video, which has been uploaded by YouTube user jesse lightfoot, has garnered nearly three million views just two weeks after being uploaded. It currently has over 10,000 likes.

While other YouTubers have simply been looking at how adorable the monkey’s interaction with the puppies is, one social media user chose to look at the exchange in a more scientific way.

“Aside from the cuteness factor this video is interesting in that it highlights how primates derive pleasure from petting dogs. It makes you wonder what biochemistry or synopsis are firing that make this a pleasurable act,” wrote social media user Mark Barros.
