Contagious Laughter: Watch Boy in Blue Shirt During ‘Clap Your Hands’ Song

In this video, we get treated to an adorable moment from a music class. If you are having a bad day, I assure you, this short clip will brighten your mood.

You often hear people say that laughter is contagious. This is because laughter is a social behavior that evolved as a way to signal safety, trust, and social connection.

Research has shown that when people hear laughter, their brains automatically start to process the sound and try to understand its meaning. This processing can activate the brain’s “mirror neuron” system, which is involved in empathy and social interaction. When we hear someone else laughing, our mirror neurons may trigger a similar feeling of happiness or amusement, which can lead us to start laughing too.

In this video, the music teacher asked the children to clap their hands along with the music. One of the kids however grabbed all the attention. Every time the teacher stopped playing, the little boy started laughing nonstop.

It’s pretty clear from this video that laughter really is contagious, at least in this classroom–his classmates were soon following him and I’m pretty sure you won’t be able to hold back either. Watch this adorable clip below and please leave us a Facebook comment to let us know what you thought!
