A woman’s bread-making demonstration during the coronavirus quarantine backfired hilariously after she inadvertently tipped over the cutting board and ended up with a faceful of flour. The splat-tacular mishap can be seen in a viral Facebook video that has nabbed more than 8.8 million views since it was posted May 6.
The uproarious clip, which is cheekily titled “The new way to make bread lol,” starts off with the unnamed baker — whose country of origin is unspecified — kneading dough and sprinkling it with flour as she explains the steps in Spanish.

The clip concludes with the embarrassed host cursing in Spanish and motioning for the camera person to stop recording.
