A video clip of three young triplets excitedly greeting their garbage men has over 32 million views on Facebook (video below).

The clip was posted on Facebook by Martha Sugalski, a news anchor for WFTV in Seminole County, Florida. Every Tuesday and Friday, her 2-year-old triplets, Heaton, Wilder and Holden, reportedly wait at the end of their driveway for the garbage collectors to stop by. The ritual began when the children were babies.

"I've been doing the videos for almost three years, and for some reason this one went viral," Sugalski said on May 31, according to the Orlando Sentinel. "It started off just waving to the truck and the crew, and then it turned into them stopping the truck, then into this sweet friendship. Now every Tuesday and Friday the triplets go nuts saying it's 'garb' day."

In the video, the children can be seen jumping up and down and waving as the garbage truck approaches. Each child has a bottle of Gatorade, which they give to the garbage collectors.

Sugalski said she was taken aback by the video's popularity.

"I had no idea that so many people around the world would see it and be so touched," she told WFTV. "I have received more than a thousand messages from people who say these videos have brightened their day and if we can do that then that makes me happy."

The video has been shared by a number of celebrities, including rapper Snoop Dog and actor Tyrese Gibson, the Orlando Sentinel reports.
