Some kids are afraid of their own shadows, but little Natalie Holden got shocked by something more sinister: A shadow puppet.
Natalie is the star of a viral video after she comes face-to-face with a "vicious" shadow puppet who attempts to maul her precious little face.
When the puppet pounces, Natalie falls on the ground laughing.
So are millions of other people -- nearly 8.4 million on Facebook alone, according to the Deccan Chronicle.
Natalie's mother, Claire Holden, posted the video on June 1 with this comment: "LOL I am the best and most gentle mother. 😂😂😂."
But it really hit big Monday when Ellen DeGeneres posted it to her Facebook page.
No clue on what Mom might do to terrorize daughter next, but this photo suggests they have a pretty good relationship.
At least when shadow puppets aren't involved.
