Aug. 3 (UPI) -- A viral video on Twitch of a father being frightened by his daughter while playing a horror video game became the streaming service's most viewed clip.

The clip features British streamer Tom Wheldon, known as "JurassicJunkie" on Twitch, shouting after his 22-month-old daughter Jessica walked into his office while he was playing Outlast 2.

Wheldon's terrified reaction to the adorable toddler helped the clip claim the Guinness World Record for "Most watched video on Twitch" just four days after the original stream on July 21.

"I had no clue that she had entered the room and at the exact same moment she did, a crow flew out at me in the game and I jumped," Wheldon said. "While taking my eyes off the screen for a split second I noticed a small figure beside me and I screamed for my life only to find out it was my daughter bringing me a cool drink!"

The clip has been viewed more than 2 million times and Wheldon said it still felt "very strange" that the silly incident earned him a Guinness World Record.

"Even after the event happened I didn't expect anything much to come from it apart from I would share the footage with a few friends," he said. "When I was contacted by the Twitch staff and Guinness World Records it really set in that my video had become number one in the world."
