A man thinks he hears ice hitting his skylight, but he couldn't be more wrong.

Well, he's in for quite a rude awakening! In the 24-second clip, the TikTok creator aimed his phone camera toward his skylight window and explained that it "just made the loudest bang ever" and began cracking. Now, instead of realizing the glass was about the shatter, the TikToker believed it was "ice popping." Um, what?!

In the end, the skylight shattered and crumpled to the ground. Well, that's going to be a pain to clean up — or is it? If it's ice, as the man said, it should all just melt, and then he can mop it up and forget it happened (if only).

Many fellow TikTokers took to the comment section and shared their thoughts on the odd situation: "Ice? It looks like it's 80 degrees outside" one person said.

"Why did he think it was ice? it's literally sunny," asked another commenter, while a third person wrote, "I love how he said, 'can't tell if it's frozen or cracked,' like it isn't mid-summer."

"I don't want to alarm you, but [that] was the glass making that sound, not the ice," someone else added.

Another fellow TikToker shared, "I don't know, does ice look like that normally???"

"The way the 'rain' sound ended immediately," one person joked, while another user claimed the TikTok creator had "the most British reaction ever." We couldn't agree more, especially after hearing him shout, "Oh my god!"

A few others were annoyed with the TikToker, stating that "he had so much time to prepare" for the skylight's collapse, but instead of moving stuff out of the way and grabbing a tarp or towels, he just stood there like a Sim.

"You could have put something there to catch it omg," a TikToker commented.

Another person penned, "The way I would've BOLTED to get a tarp and throw it under."

A fourth TikToker explained, "Should have gotten a ladder, put a blanket and tape around the glass so when it breaks, it [doesn't] make a mess. Come on now... think quicker."
