This Kid’s Reaction to the Ice Cream Truck Is Perfect

Comedy is all timing

Laughing at children falling is not encouraged. However …

In this video making the rounds, it’s hard not to laugh when not one, but two children take a dive for no apparent reason other than pure comedy.

The video starts with two kids kicking it in the kitchen eating a snack. The toddler tumbles, as toddlers are wont to do. Then an ice cream truck rolls by and the trademark music registers with the older child, whose eyes widen in excitement. He is so caught up in the moment he forgets both how to stand and sit and crashes to the floor.

Since the mother laughed first and then posted on Facebook that her kids are totally fine, we’ll just go ahead and giggle at their momentary misfortune.
