Who's ready for a warm and fuzzy Chinese New Year?

Chinese netizens first lit up lip-syncing app Douyin (also known as Tik Tok) with the "Four Generations Challenge" last week, which has since spread around the world.

This is how it works:

The youngest family member -- a boy, for example -- calls out for his dad to appear, and he in turn calls out for his dad, who calls out for his dad. You get the idea.

And the result is simply heartwarming:

It's not just us when we say the fuzzy feeling intensifies when the great-grandparent appears.

And call us softies if you wish, but cue lump in throat when all videos are played in succession.

Some have already named it the cutest meme of 2019.

The first YouTube video posted on Jan 2 has received more than 150,000 views in five days.

A Facebook post shared a day later by Shanghaiist showing a compilation of videos gained more than 1.8 million views in less than a week.

US-based Buzzfeed writer Kassy Cho's Twitter thread has also been spreading the feels.

But on the downside, it has also made many people miss their grandparents.

Families around the world have also jumped on the bandwagon, from the US to India, and even Norway. 

We haven't seen a Singaporean version yet, so we challenge you to tag us (@asiaonecom) with yours.

Who knows, this could take over our Chinese New Year gatherings this year, and honestly, we can't wait.
