A YouTube clip of a man waking up after surgery and seeing his wife for the 'first time' has gone viral with over 4m hits in 10 days.

YouTube user Jason Mortenson posted a video to his YouTube account, taken by his wife. The video shows Mortenson waking up after surgery and appearing to have forgotten who his wife is.

The smooth talker begins with "You must be the most beautiful woman I've ever seen" as she instructs him to "eat your cracker". He appears surprised when she responds to "who are you?" with "I'm your wife" and replies, stunned, "I hit the jackpot!"

The heartwarming clip has received almost 5m views since it was uploaded on August 30th. In response to questions left in the comments section, Mortenson stated: "It's my fifth surgery within our six years of marriage and she's been by my side through all of it. In a previous surgery I suffered a severe complication and we didn't know if I'd ever function the same again. She is the love of my life."
