TikTok user Liz San Millan was making a video to feature her vocal talent, trilling a beautiful melody for the camera. It’s a peaceful, elegant scene that is completely decimated at the same moment as Millan’s ceiling is—her mom falls through a new hole, Millan shrieks, and her mom’s leg dangles there with no explanation.
Here she is in the moments before:
Here’s the after:
Don’t worry, she grabs her phone for safekeeping as the TikTok ends, so the moment was preserved.

Millan told Buzzfeed that her mom was in the home attic looking for luggage to help with her move back to school. Millan is studying musical theater and was practicing a tune from Heathers: The Musical for upcoming auditions.
“Right before she fell, you can see the irritation in my face due to her banging around while she knew I was filming,” Millan said. “There are wooden beams in the attic that you’re supposed to step on, but she tripped and stepped right into my ceiling.”
Luckily, her mom is totally okay, which is why it feels all right to laugh at all of these jokes in the TikTok’s comments are her expense:
The reason she was quiet after the fall was simply shock, but she’s recovered and is enjoying laughing at herself as her leg gets famous.
“I thoroughly enjoyed the responses to my video,” said Millan. “My mom has absolutely loved reading the comments and watching the duets.”
There is still a hole in the ceiling, which her dad is working on fixing. So unfair! None of the fame, all of the mess. Maybe he can roll down the roof as Millan is tap dancing in her next vid.
