The Sideshow

Boy falls asleep while eating ice cream (VIDEO)

Yahoo! editors have selected this video as a favorite of 2012. It first ran in Yahoo! News in May and was one of the most popular kid viral videos. User Joshua felt nostalgic after watching it: “Man, I miss being a kid.”

In this video, a boy struggles to balance his body's competing needs for sleep and ice cream. And what makes the video so amusing is that the competition is essentially a draw, as he continually switches from brief moments of sleep to taking … one … more … bite of his ice cream cone.

Interestingly, the video is from 2010 but has suddenly gone viral this week.

It's also not the first video to capture a boy struggling to stay awake while eating his ice cream cone:
