FLORAL PARK - The son of a News 12 Long Island reporter has become a viral-video sensation on YouTube this holiday season.

Michael Helmes, 4, made his YouTube debut after his mother, reporter Antoinette Biordi, recorded his disappointed reaction to getting books for Christmas last year.

Biordi says she thought the video was funny and posted it on YouTube to share with family and friends.

Today, the video hit one million views.

Biordi says this Christmas, Michael will be getting both toys and books.

For an extended interview with Helmes, go to Channel 612 on your iO Digital Cable Box and select iO Extra.
