This is the hilarious moment a little boy gets slapped on the face with a piece of bread dough that accidentally slips from the baker’s hand as he spins it in the air to thin it out in front of a crowd.

Surveillance cameras captured the unexpected slip-up at an Indian Naan shop in Xiamen, in south-eastern China’s Fujian Province.

In the video, the baker – not named- is seen apparently trying to show off his talents by performing an impressive dough-flipping move while preparing flatbread.

As onlookers are gathered around, filled with anticipation, he gracefully flips the dough in mid-air several times.

But to everyone’s surprise, the continuous spinning causes the dough to fly into the air and land squarely on the face of a young boy who stands close by.

The crowd erupts with laughter as the stunned boy quickly shakes off his shock and removes the dough from his face and throws it on the ground.

The baker later shared his hilarious mistake on Douyin, the Chinese version of TikTok, with the caption: “I didn’t do it on purpose, haha! I have to admit, it’s quite accurate! Haha.”

The footage attracted widespread attention, gaining more than 1.3 million likes and over 1.5 million shares, with many users admitting they could not stop laughing at it.

One user titled ‘Potatoes’ said in a comment: “I started laughing before it even hit his face.”

Another user titled ‘fairy fudge’ wrote: “The little boy said: I am here to buy flatbread, not to apply a mask.”
