Protesters stopped what they were doing and sang "Baby Shark" to a frightened toddler after his mom asked them to keep the noise down.

When Eliane Jabbour was driving home in Baabda District in Lebanon over the weekend, she found herself caught up among a raucous group of demonstrators joining in the nationwide protests against the country's leaders.

Concerned for her 15-month-old son beside her in the car, she asked them to quiet down.

“The moment I told them, 'please guys I have a baby next to me,' they immediately became different people," she told PA. “All their shouting and screaming and rage disappeared and spontaneously started singing 'Baby Shark' for Robin."

She caught the moment on camera and posted the video to Facebook, where it has gone viral with over 150,000 views.

And though she said Robin was a little overwhelmed by the noise at the time, he loves the video now.

Some people love how the song is encouraging peace.

And, we will all be happy.

It's adorable!

Other kids are even joining in.

This would be my reaction.

It's the intentions that count.

“He had just woke up, that is why he looks confused in the video," she said. “But now when I show it to him he starts laughing. He loves the song."

The children's song has swelled in popularity with kids over the past few years thanks to a 2016 version which went viral on YouTube.

Lebanon's government on Monday announced a suite of proposals aimed at appeasing protesters who had spent days on the street demonstrating against the nation's wealth inequality and crumbling infrastructure.

Sometimes life just doesn't have our best interests at heart.

You've hurt yourself in the kitchen, you've hurt yourself in the garden, you've hurt yourself working around the house. But have you ever hurt yourself while drinking water? Have you ever injured yourself while looking at the microwave?

When we think of teenagers one of the first things that comes to mind is the idea that they have a total know-it-all thing going on. I'll be honest, as a teen I was convinced I had things at least mostly figured out. Oh god, so wrong. So very, very wrong.

So now that I'm an adult, there are tons of things I try to explain to the kids and teens in my life, but I know they just sit and stare at me blankly the way I did to my family members who tried to guide me. It's a cycle, I've just come to accept it.

We can all agree getting older is the worst decision we make as humans, right? Who thought this was the best way to live our lives? Being a kid was the best! Everything seemed to be easier, including playing sports, making friends, somehow learning foreign languages without taking four years of college courses. But then...you grow up, losing all those skills.
