In the video, the little boys can be seen yelling in happiness as they recognized each other. They made a beeline toward each other, with arms spread wide open before they finally hugged.

Maxwell and Finnegan then ran down the sidewalk. The two are best friends, and they hadn't seen each other in a few days, according to TODAY.

They go to music class together and consistently get fired up when they get the opportunity to play.
