A Curious Girl And A Willing Mom

TikTok user and mom did everything within her powers to make her darling daughter believe that her Elf on the Shelf can do real-life things and the little girl was sure she wanted to capture the moment in real-time.

A Golden Idea

The mom then performed a little stunt of her own to make her girl's holiday wish come true and wrote in the video text.

“That time our daughter set up cameras to catch her Elf on the shelf flying, So we had to get creative and make this f****** thing fly at midnight tired asf. The things we do for these kids man…” 

Look, It's The Flying Elf!

The creative mom staged a security clip for her daughter hidden camera as an attempt to make her believe her doll had now come to life. It was a well-played-out move as the elf flew around the air near the family's Christmas tree.

The video has gathered over 10 million views and 22 million likes on TikTok as the mom rounded up the wholesome moment with sprinkles of glitter around the magical elf who came down and stared directly into the camera.

Mom Couldn't Hold Back Her Laughter

Trust the video to spark up reactions from different corners of the app, as one user who was deeply amused by the stunt wrote, “The glitter being sprinkled in front of the camera is killing me,” as the mom replied that she was cackling up while doing it and if the viewers listened closely, they would hear the laughter.

We're glad the laughter wasn't loud enough for the little girl to discover she was being finessed.

More Comments

Other users had sweet things to say about the video as one user described it as a "masterpiece", while another wants to desperately "believe" the stunt forever. Another TikToker wants the video to get an Emmy which is not a bad idea at all! That was super creative of the mom.

“This will be a core memory and she’s going to believe forever omg,” wrote another viewer.
