What happened to the viral “candles” video?

Earlier this year my brother-in-law brought up a great question. He asked me if I remembered the video where a dad was asking his children to say something nice to their mom for Mother’s Day. Each kid said something like, “I love you Mom,” or “You’re the best mom!” and then when the camera pans over to the last child, she’s covered in lipstick and says, “CANDLES!” It was quite funny, but you know what it isn’t? Anywhere to be found! 

After he asked me about it I did a little searching and sure enough, it doesn’t pop up on any relevant searches. A video that went viral can’t just disappear, can it? Surely there would be screen grabs of the little girl, and/or other people who saved the video and reposted it but it seems to be gone from the internet. 

So the search continues, and I’d love your help. First, do you know which video I’m talking about? Second, how can it just go poof and be gone? 

This is just crazy and frustrating and I’m determined to find it now. Noboby puts Baby in the corner!
