'I'm Viral:' Video Of BA Toddler's Emotional Reaction To Movie Seen Nearly 75M Times
BROKEN ARROW, Oklahoma - Millions of people watched a video of a Broken Arrow 2-year-old girl watching a movie and getting emotional.
Emily Broderick posted the video on Facebook. It shows her niece, Jentree Joles, getting emotional during Disney-Pixar's The Good Dinosaur.
“That made me sad. The dinosaur’s making me sad,” the 2-year-old girl said in the video.
Now, Jentree is a star.
“Hello world, I’m Jentree,” she told News On 6. “I’m famous.”
Jentree both won over and broke our hearts at the same time as tears ran down her cheeks watching the young dinosaur get separated from his family.
“He wants his momma,” she said in the video. “That makes me sad.”
Jentree understood exactly what had happened, and she's still thinking about it.
“He slipped down to the water. He fell down,” she said. “He lost his momma…Poor dinosaur.”
The reaction was so unusual her grandma, Tamara Hryshchuck, recorded the moment.
“I was getting emotional just watching her get emotional,” she said.
Hryshchuck said she’s never seen her granddaughter that sad.
“She's typically bouncy, hyper, happy all the time," she said.
Jentree was so upset they turned the movie off.
Jentree’s aunt posted the video on social media the same night and it became an overnight sensation.
“I woke up and it had almost a million views,” Broderick said.
The family says it's now been viewed about 75 million times after being shared on several different social medial platforms, and Jentree can’t believe it.
“I'm viral,” she said. “What the heck?”
But now instead of crying, Jentree smiles watching her emotional reaction because she knows there’s a happy ending.
“The dinosaur finds his family,” she said.
