This woman bought flowers and made her husband give them to her.

"When you just want flowers from your husband," the creator, Brittany, captioned the post.

In the viral video, which has amassed 12.1 million views, Brittany holds a bouquet of flowers while standing at the front door. When her husband gets home, Brittany quickly shoves the flowers in his hands and kicks him out. A few seconds later, he tries his luck and opens the door again.

With a smile on his face, he offers Brittany the flowers — and she's overjoyed. The couple hugs, with Brittany thanking her husband for going out of his way to do something nice for her (he didn't, but at least he went along with it!)

Many fellow TikTokers took to the comment section and agreed that Brittany is a "genius."

"This is actually a good way to say you want flowers without directly saying it," one person said, while another TikTok user wrote, "This is a genius idea! I love it so much!!!!"

A third commented, "Not him embracing the hug with a back pat like he actually [brought] the flowers."

"I [saw] this from another couple earlier this week," added another. "The men are so accepting after it dawns on them."

"Plot twist he was waiting for you to give him flowers this whole time" a TikToker joked.

Someone else penned, "LOL, yes! It's such a small [effortless] gesture but means so much!"

After another TikTok user suggested that Brittany get a "ring doorbell so we could see his reaction when you shut that door," she replied via a follow-up video that featured footage from her ring doorbell camera.

Once he was kicked out of the house, Brittany's husband looked visibly confused. However, it didn't take him long to understand what was going on; he set his Amazon package off to the side, grabbed the flowers in both of his hands, and opened the front door with a big smile.

"He knew right away," one TikToker commented, while another said, "he understood the assignment."

"His smile though! He's genuinely so happy just to see you! Like, you brought a huge smile to his face!" a third sweetly wrote, while a fourth joked, "Imagine him thinking the flowers were for him, and that's why he's cheesing so hard."

Someone else pointed out how he smiled the entire time, and Brittany responded, "He's such a good sport, I couldn't have asked for a better man." Ugh — how stinkin' cute!
