A YouTube prankster startled his girlfriend by pretending their young son died in an ATV accident.

Roman Atwood uploaded the stunt to his channel Sunday titled “Blowing Up My Kid PRANK!!” The video starts out with Atwood and his son Kane, 3, checking out a used ATV. They show that the four-wheeler is operated by a remote control.

When the mom shows up to see the ATV, they agree to buy it. As she walked back to the car, the prankster swapped his son for a doll in the same outfit.

The ATV takes off just as the mom returns, sending the parents running after it. The four-wheeler jumps over a hill, causing a major explosion. Once the mom runs to check on the crash, she discovers she’s been tricked.

“That is not funny,” she yells at Atwood before kicking him. “Don’t touch me, I am done.”

Their son runs into his mother’s arms at the end of the video.

Atwood is known to post his pranks to his YouTube channel.
