Little Jackson Blitch may not have experienced a break-up yet, but this video proves that it's not only adults that shed a tear over a sad break-up song or movie.

Filmed and posted by dad Mark Blitchm, he writes on Youtube that he changed the song when it came on the car stereo, but Jackson asked him to keep it on.

“Here is the first moment that he has been ‘moved,” Blitch wrote.

On hearing the song “Say Something” by A Great Big World featuring Christina Aguilera, little Jackson starts quietly weeping.

“If it makes you cry, I don’t want to keep playing a sad song for you. But you want me to keep it on?” the American boy's father asks.

“I like it,” Jackson says, keeping his eyes closed.

The touching one minute clip was posted a week ago and has already been viewed almost two million times.
