Physical comedian and influencer Daniel LaBelle's recent portrayal of teen boys in a dash to clean-up minutes before "mom says she’s almost home" couldn’t be more accurate.

The video which has been seen more than 500 000 times (and counting), shows LaBelle and friend sprinting, diving, and speed-vacuuming all in a matter of seconds, and it's the closest thing you'll see to a cleaning Olympics.

The hilarious video took people back to their childhood with more than a few followers confessing they adopted a similar clean-up style when they were young.

"This was me and my brother every day growing up. Hilarious," commented one of LaBelle's followers.

Another also shared similar sentiments.

"Me when I was a teenager. Now I’m the mom".
