Here's a cute little kid kicking the ball around a park, probably pretending he's Gareth Barry. His mother decides to play with him and -- sweet Moses! For some reason she hauls off and blasts the ball right into her son's face from just a few inches away. Why does she kick it that hard?! His jaunty hat pops right off!
The kid, of course, starts to cry and she tries to console him -- thankfully not by launching the ball at him again. After a few tears, the child's smile returns and he resumes kicking the ball ... as far away from his mother as his tiny legs will take him.
