In the video, Kirstin explained with onscreen text, “That time my mom tried using the mower and didn’t know how and we captured it on Ring.”
Everything seemed peaceful at first in the footage — but suddenly, Kirstin’s mom stormed into the frame, holding onto her mower for dear life.
Her mom shrieked as the mower spun her around helplessly, cutting a perfect circle in the family’s grass. Suddenly, Kirstin’s dad appeared and frantically shouted, “Pull back, pull back!” to his startled wife.
The video cuts suddenly — but thankfully, Kirstin uploaded the second half of her family’s epic lawn drama.
Thankfully, the Ring doorbell dutifully captured every hilarious moment — including mom’s remark after dismounting her wild lawn mower. “Well, that was terrifying!”

‘Omg this made my day… I so needed to laugh’
Thousands of TikTokers commented on the hilarious video, sharing their reaction to mom’s lawn-mower antics.
“I guarantee this was one of mom’s ‘Fine, I’ll do it myself’ moments that didn’t go quite so well,” laughed one user.
“It’s like watching an episode of ‘I Love Lucy’ in color,” another user observed.
“What made her think that day was the day she randomly gained the knowledge to drive one of those?” asked one user, laughing-crying emojis in tow.
“I’ve watched this video 100 times and cried. I cannot stop,” another user laughed.
“Omg this made my day, thank you so much, I so needed to laugh,” wrote one user.
Even the official account for Scotts Lawn care had to get in on the fun! “Maybe that scream was out of excitement that she completed a donut on a lawn mower!” they wrote.
As Kirstin’s mom learned that fateful day, it’s important to use heavy machinery with care — and to always find the humor in every situation (even if it’s on the back of a bucking lawn mower!).
