In December, Caroline Charter uploaded a video of her mother laughing hysterically as her daughter Suzanne repeatedly tries and fails to make it up an icy driveway. The video has since gone viral, and now has nearly one million views on YouTube
“This just made my Christmas,” Charter wrote on YouTube. “Ice rain storm made my parents driveway a little treacherous for my sister Suzanne, and my dad.”
“Hysterical laughing track provided by mum,” she added. “Must watch with sound up!!”
After the video took off, Charter spoke with the Mirror UK and told the full story behind the clip. “That day, I was hosting my husband’s family for Christmas celebrations, so needed to get back to prepare, she said. “I actually waited out the initial flash freeze, ice rain that was coming down, but was down to the wire on when people were going to start arriving so had to leave.
“Good news, is that the roads were salted, but their driveway is quite slopped and I wasn’t prepared for the wet ice, she said.That’s the thing about Canadian weather, it can be unpredictable but you still need to crack on with your day.”
“We are a very close family, so we laugh a lot and don’t think twice about mocking each other out of love,” she added. “Apparently, other people can relate. I am just glad my mums laughter has spread so much joy – that is all that matters.”
Charter has since added a update to the YouTube noting that a portion of the proceeds from the video will be donated to “raise awareness for mental health and depression.”
