Comedian Roman Atwood thought he was pulling an innocent prank, but his kid’s mom definitely wasn’t laughing.

Enlisting the help of his sons, he asks the mother to go downstairs to get them some water to set up the prank.

With one of his son’s dressed in a Spider-Man costume, they swap him out for a dummy also dressed in the same costume.

When she returns upstairs, she’s just in time to see what appears to be their son being launched off the upstairs balcony while “he” and Atwood were playing.

The parents rush downstairs to help the boy. When mom rips off the Spider-Man mask and sees she’s been tricked, she found it none too amusing.

The video has gotten over 6 million views on YouTube since it was posted Nov. 30.
