UPDATE: It turns out the entire internet got tricked here, and this isn’t actually a real avalanche. It’s from a 2014 movie nobody has ever heard of. Hand up. I’ll own this one. You know you pulled a fast one when you trick over eight million people.

One family nearly got taken out by a (fake) avalanche in a video making the rounds on Twitter.

In a video shared by @zama_mdluli, which currently has 8.17 million views, a family appearing to be eating dinner in an unknown location (because it’s fake) seems to be taking in the sights when an avalanche comes crashing down the mountain.

Did they run immediately? Nope. They decided to take a few more moments to watch, and it almost cost them dearly. (SLIDESHOW: 142 Times Josephine Skriver Barely Wore Anything)

If you’re this family, you need to learn how to get on your feet and moving like the building is on fire. As somebody who used to live in Montana, I can promise you avalanches are nothing to mess around with.

When you see one coming, it’s time to run for your life if you’re sitting at a table watching.

Seriously, what was this family thinking? Did they think the avalanche wasn’t going to take them out? Did they think they were strong enough to withstand the force behind that thing barreling towards them?

Wake up, people. It’s an avalanche. It’s not a light dusting of snow.

Next time, grab your stuff and start running like it’s the 40-yard dash during the NFL combine. Don’t just hang out and wait to get killed.
