Remember that penny-in-a-bottle trick? It’s where you put a penny under a water bottle, cover it up and mumble some abracadabra-voodoo-mumbo-jumbo, and, voila! Penny’s in the bottle.

And make sure to unscrew the lid of the bottle during the unveiling—so that when your unsuspecting and trusting audience member leans in to see how you’ve done it, you can squeeze the bottle so that they get a faceful of water.

Facebook is full of moms and grandmas having a fit after performing this trick on their husbands and seeing their flabbergasted (and soggy) expressions.

One son tried to film this trick with his mom as the unsuspecting audience member.

Mm-hm. Sure.

He starts off explaining how it works, putting a penny under the bottle, and all that.

Abracadabra. Jazz fingers. Mom gets it.

Now it’s time for the big reveal.


Her laugh is hilarious. It’s worth watching just for that.
