The maniacal laugh of a Norwegian baby girl has thousands of YouTube users and US news outlets bewitched.

In less than two weeks, 1-and-a-half-year-old baby Ekström has earned 5 million views for her reaction to a fallen toy.

The video titled “My daughter has chosen the dark side,” a reference to the Star Wars axis of evil, has been shown on US television by the Good Morning America show and comedian Ellen DeGeneres, both with viewers in the tens of millions.

Baby Ekstrøm’s father, Thomas Ekstrøm, contemplated adding his daughter’s cute encounters with her favourite car to a family blog before deciding instead to upload to Youtube.

Newspaper Dagbladet reported Ekstrøm had 150,000 views in just one night.
