“I have a water gun and an upside down bath mat and I go scoot,” one commenter joked.

“OMG … I need to do this,” another commenter said. “Can you hook up a mop too? Lol.”

“My kid is accident prone and has already double dislocated her elbow using a hoverboard,” another viewer commented, basically saying they won’t be trying this.
