Being married to a magician seems stressful.
At least, that’s the takeaway from a new TikTok shared by illusionist Justin Flom, which features an “evil” candy-based prank.
The clip, which has more than 28 million views, begins with Flom shaking two canisters of M&M’s Minis, while his wife does her makeup in the mirror.
Both containers are not the same though. As Flom shows us, he’s emptied one canister out and filled it with … a hot dog.
“What are you doing?” Flom’s wife asks as he shakes the candy.
The magician proceeds to hold the “real” candy over his head, telling his wife that he’s doing a challenge to see how many M&M’s he can catch in his mouth. Then, he challenges her to try it — except, of course, with the hot dog-filled can.
This is where it’s important to note that you should not try this prank at home. It is absolutely a choking hazard. Thankfully, Flom’s wife was OK, although definitely a little embarrassed by the result.
As Flom counts his wife down, she flips over the tube to let out what she thinks will be M&M’s. The result? An uncooked hot dog hitting her directly in the face.
TikTok users had a wide range of reactions to the prank, ranging from jokes to expressing some actual rage toward Flom’s stunt. Regardless, everyone seemed to agree they felt bad for his wife.
“THE FACE SHE MADE,” one user wrote.
“I was so nervous she was gonna choke,” another added.
“Lol, if she presses charges I’ll represent you my guy,” another joked.
“Greatest slow-mo in the history of TikTok,” another praised.
The good news: Flom’s wife seemed to get her revenge. She posted a video on the magician’s TikTok page the following day, in which she pranked her husband with a classic “the pickle jar won’t open” trick.
In the clip, Flom’s wife asks her husband for “help” with the jar, which she’s actually super-glued shut. Then, she tosses in an extra scare — just for good measure.
