Their marriage may have experienced some turbulence.
Georgian pilot Mike Young went viral after posting a gag video from the cockpit that many commentators dubbed an “instant divorce” prank.
The video showed Young piloting the plane while his wife slept blissfully in the passenger seat – before he performed a stunt and abruptly woke her up.
“I recorded the video a few weeks ago on our last day of a seven-day adventure trip to a bunch of random destinations,” Young told Needtoknow.online.
“She was sleeping and I felt like it was the perfect time to wake her up as we got closer to home.”
In the video, Young and his wife can be seen piloting the plane early in the morning with Heather asleep in the co-pilot’s seat.
Young then pulls the plane into a negative G, a motion that involves accelerating downward, which results in the passengers being pulled from their seats and blood being sent to their heads.
That’s when his wife wakes up with a start and starts screaming at her husband.
“What the hell are you doing,” the shocked wife shouted as she punched her husband with a laugh.
Young explained that he had never made the move with his wife before.
“My kids love it when I do G negatives, but I’ve never done it while my wife is sleeping,” Young explained.
The video, which is currently climbing to 480,000 likes on Instagram, has left several viewers in need of an oxygen mask due to hysteria.
“He was just stealing,” one user joked.
“He’ll be sleeping on the couch tonight,” another joked.
“Bro is going to sleep outside today,” laughed a third person.
Other viewers didn’t find the video funny at all.
“It made me vomit just looking at it,” one user commented.
“Instant divorce,” another person said.
