Internet Cracking Up Over Clever Boy's Call For Assistance

If you can't find your destination, pull up Google maps. If you want to know the temperature, you can ask Alexa.
But when poor "Baby Gracie" headed home from the neighbor's house alone and could not remember the number of his favorite kid's channel, he cleverly turned to technology, too. But no one could have imagined what he would do next.
The Michigan boy and his mom had been at the neighbor's house when he decided he wanted to go home. She allowed him to trek across the street and instructed him to turn on the kid's channel on their TV and she'd be home shortly.
Except he couldn't remember the station number. So instead of heading back over to the neighbor's house to ask mom or query Alexa, he went to the front porch.
The little boy knew that on the other end of his family's Ring doorbell device was Dad. He stood in front of the doorbell and as he expected, the motion detector kicked on and the app notified his dad that something was moving around in front of the Ring doorbell.
More than six million people have gotten a kick out of their conversation recorded by Ring. "Baby Gracie" stands on his tiptoes and looks in the direction of the camera, then starts shouting "Dad? Dad!"
His dad hears him and responds. First, Baby Gracie tells his dad that he loves him, and dad replies with affection, too, then asks his son, "How's it going, man?"
"How do you turn on the kids channel? In the house. Do you know Dad?"
Dad explains that you simply press the power button on the side of the TV. Baby Gracie said he knew how to do that, but didn't know what number the kids channel is.
"Oh man. I think the kids channel is, maybe like 25."
Baby Gracie's response has everyone cracking up.
"I don't know what channel 25 looks like!"
After a hearty chuckle from his dad, he instructs Baby Gracie to push the "two and the five." To thank Dad for his help, Baby Gracie crams his eyeball into the path of the camera several times, then lavishes slobbery kisses all over the Ring doorbell camera.
"That's buddy. I love you."
Baby Gracie proclaims his love for his dad, especially now that he knows how to access the kids channel, and shouts "bye," ready to watch TV.
It's no wonder this video has gone viral. This little boy is just too darn cute!
