Going viral: a video of a toddler “smoking” a cigarette while a group of adults laugh and encourage him has been described as “So wrong on so many levels.”

The video, which was uploaded to YouTube yesterday, shows a small boy, probably aged two or three, in his pyjamas. As a group of adults look on, the boy repeatedly brings a lit cigarette to his mouth and blows out as if exhaling.

The adults hoot with laughter at his antics, especially when the little boy taps the cigarette on the ashtray to shed the ash. The irresponsible adults also make an exaggerated inhaling sound when the toddler puts the cigarette to his lips.

The video is going viral, as people cannot believe what they are watching. At over 10,000 views already, the comments mostly slam the child’s parents for letting him fake smoke.
