A video of a toddler running around in a stick figure costume is the Internet's newest viral offering and, Twitter users say, a "pretty awesome" Halloween idea.

Royce Hutain, a photographer from Huntington Beach, Calif., thought it would be funny to dress his 22-month-old daughter Zoey up in an LED light suit that, in the dark, creates a stick figure effect, CBS Los Angeles reported. He recorded her tottering around and posted the clip Tuesday to YouTube and Reddit, the social news site.

But he had no idea the video would take off like it did, generating a staggering 7.6 million views in just three days.

"I sit at computers all day, and I get bored, and I think of ideas like this," Hutain told CBS Los Angeles. "All of a sudden, it’s gone crazy."

This isn’t the first time Hutain has made a stick figure costume. He's also posted videos on YouTube showing his snowboarder buddies whizzing around in the outfits.

He plans to post a tutorial online showing people how to construct their own stick figure costumes.

"I don't have the time to try to make money off these things, but it’d be great to be able to show other people how to make them," he said. "I'd love to see other videos of other people doing it."

There are sure to be copycat videos floating around in no time, as Redditors and Twitter users loved Hutain's idea.

"This might just be the coolest baby costume in the entire world," one Reddit user posted

"Put this in production and you can retire next year," another said of the potential profits Hutain could make.
