It was a prank — but not a very funny one, at least for one woman.

A dad — who also happens to be a comedian — enlisted the help of his two young sons, dressing one of them in a Spider Man costume. With the camera recording, he pretends to wrestle with his son, and they ask the mother to get them some water downstairs.

She returns to the room just in time to see the father launch what she thought was her toddler son off the balcony. She rushes to the “boy” and rips his Spider Man mask off, realizing she’d been tricked.

She wasn’t laughing! The video has gotten over 6 million views on YouTube since it was posted Nov. 30.
