A video of a baby using pillows to break his fall from a bed is making the rounds of the internet.

"But why?" you ask. 

Because this baby is a freaking genius! That's why. 

The owner of the video, which is wonderfully titled "My Son The Genius" wrote in the video's description:

"Baby is learning! lol... he tries to get off the bed but it is too high so he throws down pillows for a safe landing so smart." So smart indeed.

One commenter also noted that the child is even aware of their being no more pillows to catch his fall, and once he's realized that, had the bravery to take the leap!
