It is by far one of the funniest video memes to come from Twitter, and it involves no one other than ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith, with a baby face filter from Snapchat.

A few days ago, Twitter user @Dylangonzalez21 posted a video of Stephen A. with Snapchat’s baby filter, which turns a person into a baby and gives them a child-like voice. @Dylangonzalez21 posted the video over one of Stephen A.’s radio show broadcasts, specifically the one which aired the day after the New York Knicks had lost out on drafting Zion Williamson in the Draft Lottery.

And, well, the results were hilarious.

Smith, who is already known for his expressive demeanor and loud on-air segments, managed to sound like a tiny toddler who was doing nothing more than throwing a very big temper tantrum.

Ultimately, it appeared that Stephen A. and the baby face filter were a perfect viral match.

One user thought the video was so good, it deserved to be on Facebook.

Shortly after, users began putting the baby filter over other sports personalities, with one person saying they would pay money to see an entire ESPN segment called “First Take Babies.”

So, if anyone from ESPN is reading this, it appears there is a large sum of people who wouldn’t mind watching babies throw temper tantrums over sports. Maybe “First Take Babies” isn’t a bad idea after all.
