Some of us struggle to hit 11 "likes" on a selfie, but this Massachusetts grandfather has thousands on a snap posted to his granddaughter's Facebook. Alfred Birch is a soon-to-be 98-year-old who asked his daughter (and the Internet) to help him get 98 "likes" on a photo of himself for his birthday on March 28. Check out his adorable picture below.
In the cute snap posted to Facebook, Alfred is shown laying in a hospital bed in good spirits while holding up a pretty hilarious sign that reads, "My daughter does not think I can get 98 likes for being 98 years old. Can we prove her wrong? 1 like = Respect!" Well, his daughter was definitely proven wrong, as just several days after the picture was posted, it went completely viral and Alfred has more than 50,000 "likes" and 4,000 comments. At this rate, it already looks like Alfred is in for the best 98th birthday celebration ever.
