In a video published on the Occupy Wall Street website, as three rather talented musicians seranade the protest yesterday, a baby emerges from the crowd wearing a t-shirt that appears to feature “hipster” glasses on planet earth, and begins to dance and clap.

Needless to say, the child utterly charmed all those who were watching.

“This is what it’s about everybody, America!” a man shouts from off camera as the song ends. “This is what it’s about, right here.”

For more on why Occupy Wall Street is happening, watch Keith Olbermann read off the group’s “Declaration of Occupation,” which explains their motives better than virtually any mainstream media source has yet.

If you happen to know who the child is, or the musicians, we’d like to know. Send your tip to editor@rawstory.com.
