Get some tissues ready because this short film's cuteness is bound to make you cry.

In a Heartbeat is about a closeted teenage boy who develops a crush for another boy, but is too shy to say so. His heart then decides to take matters into its own hands. Proving that there's nothing stronger than teenage love, the heart literally pops out of his chest to chase after his crush.

Produced at the Ringling College of Art and Design, the animated short by Beth David and Esteban Bravo was uploaded onto YouTube just two days ago and has racked up over 4.5 million views and counting!

Between the incredible animation, charming score and fundamental theme that love is love, it's no wonder that the award-winning In a Heartbeat has received a lot of love from the Internet. Here's to more inclusive animated films like this!
