It begins with the camera focusing on a young boy and his mother standing in the crowd of Green Bay Packers fans during their recent game against the Pittsburgh Steelers at Lambeau Field in Wisconsin.
The child then turns to face the stands before yelling at three and punching in the air.
His actions set off the wave, where people raise their arms in the air to create a ripple effect through the crowd, which has roamed the entire stadium.
What makes the video so adorable is the happiness the boy clearly experiences at his achievement as he greets his mother with joy.
The text covering the images reads: “To the little boy who started the wave … you go places, buddy.”
She then captioned her music video, which can be watched here, writes: “He should put this on his resume #packers #football.”

Another video shot during a football game that recently went viral was a clip of fans in Miami, who managed to catch a cat in an American flag.
In Twitter footage shot during the Miami Hurricanes’ home opener vs Appalachian State footage, we can see the animal hanging from the front on the upper deck by one paw.
Unable to hold out any longer, the cat dives onto the deck below and is luckily grabbed by fans in the booth below using a flag as a net.
As the black and white animal bounced off the flag, the whole stadium erupted into enthusiastic cheers and applause.
