Russian Baby Cackles Like an Evil Genius (Video)

A Russian baby with an uncanny laugh looks set to become the Internet's next big celebrity, after a video of it laughing like a supervillain chalked up more than 1.5 million views this week alone, a news report said.

The 40-second video, posted Monday to YouTube, opens with a cute-looking baby giggling into the camera.

But as the video progresses, the child's laugh becomes increasingly reminiscent of a supervillain who has just succeeded in plotting world domination.

It appears at one stage as though the baby is about to cry, but something catches its attention and it continues to cackle.

The baby is believed to come from Russia, Britain's The Daily Mail reported Thursday, without specifying exactly where.
