You have probably never seen a baptism quite like that one above, which was so good we just had to put it right up top for you.

The video – which is geotagged as coming from Monterrey, the capital city of Nuevo Leon in Mexico – was posted on Friday. It's short, and includes the caption "Libre de pecado de por vida," which translates to "Free from sin for life," according to Google.

A few hundred people retweeted it, but it was this is the tweet that really sent it flying – in which @assfruta wrote, "My mans dipped the baby like it some wings in ranch dip."

We can't think of a better analogy, so we'll leave it there.

Anyway, baptisms grew steadily in the late 1990s, but suddenly began dropping in the years afterward, the National Catholic Register wrote in 2011. Baptism though isn't strictly a Catholic tradition; it's done by a number of different Christian denominations. And Mexico has one of the largest Christian populations in the world, with well over 90 percent of citizens identifying as Christian in some form, the CIA fact book says.
