Trending: Father's plea to see son's Look Back clip
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Now to a viral video that tugs at the heartstrings.
Just three days ago John Berlin took to Youtube with a plea to Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg.
His 21-year-old son died back in 2012 from natural causes.
All Berlin wanted to do was watch his son's "Look Back" clip, a one minute highlight reel of his son's best moments.
But since he didn't have access to his son's Facebook password there was nothing he could do, but make the plea on Youtube.
"All I wanna do is see his movie. That's all I want to do. I don't even need to get on his account. If you guys could just do it yourselves, I don't even care," said Berlin.
Berlin needed his video to go viral and it did.
The video he posted has been viewed almost one point 8 million times since Wednesday.
On Berlin's Youtube page he says Facebook has contacted him and they are going to work on getting his son's "Look Back" clip for him.
A statement from Facebook reads in part: "With the number of people using our service, it's often very difficult to act on behalf of one. But John's story and emotion moved us to take action - so we did."
