No joke: Mum on motorcycle wields cane, forces son to jog on sidewalk in Malaysia

To help her son lose weight, one woman in Malaysia came up with an ingenious method to make the boy exercise. 

Her plan was captured in a video uploaded to TikTok on Monday (Sept 18). The 24-second video, filmed by a passenger in a car, shows the boy jogging along a sidewalk in Perak. 

As he struggles to complete the exercise, his mother trails behind him on a red motorcycle – while holding a cane in her left hand. 

“Be strong brother. Life is as hard as a mother’s cane,” wrote the passenger in the video caption.
