Creepiest newborn cuts own umbilical cord

As we know, technology evolves every single day and everything just gets easier and easier.

Some kids get introduced way too early and end up having their whole lives run by it; as a child you should still know what it’s like to climb a tree, learn to ride your bike for the first time and tear your knee open. 

The advert was made to promote a service called MTS Internet, but they were really clever in how they chose to do it. 

The hashtag to this advert is, “born for the internet”; doesn’t that scare you just a little to what the world may be like in another 10 years or so? 

Here’s an idea: 

When is the right time to introduce your child to the internet and technology as a whole?

Well this baby came out grabbing the dad's tablet to search for tips on how to cut an umbilical cord and in the same breath grabs a smartphone, takes a selfie and uploads it to Instagram. 
If you think about it just a second longer, you will realise that it’s life, just a little exaggerated. 
Babies are already given tablets to play games with.

Babies already know where the camera button is on your smartphone.

Babies are already taking selfies, even if sometimes it’s by mistake. 

Babies already know how to make calls from your smartphone.

My point is, babies already know so much; what if in a few years your baby comes out doing the same?


How do you feel about this video; creepy or clever?
