Right now, we are all in the process of searching for extra joy in our lives. With so much going on in the world today, it can be hard to find much to smile about. Fortunately, TikTok is here to make life a bit brighter for those of us who could use a good laugh. Laughter is the best medicine, after all. TikTok mothers have come up with this trend and to be quite honest, we have not stopped laughing yet.

There are nearly 2 million videos that all center around the same general idea. Mothers surprise their unsuspecting children by gently pouring a small amount of water over their heads. The babies’ reactions are absolutely hilarious.

User @tia.dunham is one of the mothers uploading these clips and hers is particularly priceless. She’s sitting on the floor with her child while holding a massive bottle of Aquafina. You can see where this is going, right?

Once the cold water hits their head, the child starts to shiver and shake. Our little pal is shocked by what has happened but he cannot decide if he is into this game or not. That’s a common reaction from most little ones when they realize that they are being messed with by their parents.

This clip alone has received nearly 5 million likes. Viewers have been offering up lots of commentary, too, with nearly 67,000 remarks from interested parents and people who can simply appreciate a good laugh.

No babies were harmed during the making of this video.
