Viral Video of the Day: Man Petitions to Facebook to See Late Son’s ‘Look Back’

Since Facebook released the ‘Look Back’ feature in honor of the social networking site’s 10th anniversary, many have enjoyed taking a short stroll down memory lane.

However, for one family, seeing the minute-long movie for their late son means more than anything.

Yesterday, a St. Louis man named John Berlin took to YouTube with a plea that begins, “You ever do something crazy because you just don’t know what to do anymore? Well that’s what I’m doing right now.”

Berlin goes on to explain that his son, Jesse Berlin, passed away one year ago at the age of 21, and the family hasn’t been able to access his Facebook account to watch his Look Back.

Fighting back tears, the father calls out to Mark Zuckerberg and the Facebook team to help the Berlin family see Jesse’s movie in any way possible.

“Everybody does these videos and things and they go viral,” Berlin says. “So I’m asking my friends to share this video and your friends to share it, and so-on and so-forth, and maybe someone will see it that counts.”

Well, someone did see it, because just a few hours after uploading his video, Berlin returned to YouTube to post an update on the situation:

“The response is overwhelming… FB contacted us and theyre going to work on that vid.  I want to thank everyone, for your support.  I didn’t know what to expect from this but it was worth a try.  My son was 21 and died of natural causes, his autopsy came back undetermined.  He is proof that there are no guarantees in life.  Hug your children kiss them.  Tell them you love them every single day.”
