The couple in this video was watching an episode of This Is Us when the wife paused the TV. Any husband who compares himself to Jack Pearson (Milo Ventimiglia) will surely fall short, and that's exactly what happened.

"I just feel like you could have been nicer to me today," the wife said. 

"Yeah! I completely agree. Jack's an awesome husband and I'm a piece of s--t. That's half the reason I'm crying over here," her husband explained. "I came home, I was super mean, I forced you into the car, drove like a maniac to the gym, kicked you out of the car — are you filming this?"

Some prank videos backfired, to say the least.

Not every spouse or partner had a good reaction to being told that they weren't acting well. Several users took being the victim of the prank as an opportunity to air their grievances. 

The wife in this video had a list ready of things that her husband had been doing wrong, and she was not happy to be criticized. 

"I feel like you could have done 80 more things today than you did. I feel like I woke up and I cleaned our room, I did our bed, and I cleaned the sheets. I did the laundry. I put the clothes away. I come in the kitchen. Nothing's done, so I do everything. Then I make you breakfast and i get the baby ready. Then I get myself ready. What do you do, Michael? You just tell me I could've been nicer. That seems pretty nice to me. And you thought I was pretty nice last night. Super nice!"

The husband in this video was so unconvinced that he had done anything wrong that he walked to their bathroom and threw a roll of toilet paper at her. Clearly, he thinks she's full of s--t.
