What started out as a humble Kickstarter campaign has turned into a viral sensation.
Get ready to have your “aw” reflex stimulated in the new animated short called “In a Heartbeat.”
San Diego Gay and Lesbian News first told you about this project back in May of this year when its creators were trying to raise $3,000 to complete it.
Supporters went thousands of dollars further and the campaign ended up making $14,000.
The finished short made its debut on YouTube today and you can watch it below.
The adorable story follows a young man who admires his crush from afar, carefully, so as not to out himself.
Unfortunately, his heart has other plans and emerges from his chest to pursue the studious love interest only to recapture it at the most awkward moment.
What happens next is one of the most heartwarming endings you will ever see.
The short has already reached over four million views and the internet has fallen in love with this sweet four-minute romantic comedy.
