Viral Video of a Runaway Lawnmower in Ohio is Hilarious
Have you seen the two videos of a man chasing his riding lawnmower? They are priceless.
It looks like this rabbit speed chase took place somewhere around Harrod, Ohio. Harrod is a small town with less than 400 residents just East of Lima, Ohio. Last Tuesday Abby Baughman uploaded a video to the popular social media app TikTok of a man running with every ounce of energy he had in an attempt to catch his runaway riding lawnmower. She titled that TikTok, "Casual Tuesday morning in Ohio😮💨🚜."
That video has been viewed over 12.8 million times. ...And for good reason, it is hilarious. In fact, it's so funny I got suspicious. This has to be staged, right? This Abby person just happened to be recording at the moment she's driving by a man chasing his lawnmower? Luckily, 2 days later Abby uploaded video footage taken from a home security system that shows the moment the lawnmower made a break for it. This video is just as funny as the first.
As the guy pulls onto the country road by his house, it looks like he can't handle the speed and flies off of the back of the mower. The riding lawnmower narrowly misses an oncoming car, crosses the streets, and goes for a country drive thru a field.
The person who filmed the hilarious moment, Abby Baughman reached out to let us know that the man and the lawnmower are doing fine. The runaway mower stopped after hitting the bushes outside a neighboring home. The young man told her that he was able to get the mower started right up after hitting the bushes.
