They might be copying the mannerisms of most moms out there, but they are not wrong about how moms are perpetually worried about their kids.
Mothers have a natural instinct to always incessantly worry about the safety of their children. This worry does not diminish when their kids grow up into adulthood. It simply takes a different form of mothers calling their children with odd warnings. Brothers Aidan and Ryan Micho—who go by @krab_videos on TikTok—made a video that comically but accurately depicted how an average mom from every household is always worried when her kids step out of the house. It doesn't matter how old their children are, a typical mom would always ring her children up at the most unconventional moments to check if they are doing okay or not.
“There was a 40-car pileup in Wisconsin, were you there?” One brother pretending to be the mom calls the other one, who is acting as the adult son. The "son" sits in his car and announces that he is not in that state. Then the "mom" enquires the "son" about being at Chipotle, which he confirms. "I just heard a siren, are you alive?" she says while asking for verbal confirmation that he is indeed alive.
The Micho brother pretending to be the "mom" also warns the "son" to drive slowly because everyone is drunk out there. The dutiful "son" answers, reminding his 'mom' that it's Tuesday and only ten in the morning. The 'mom' also warns about some pileup she had heard about, a vandalized park and a stabbing incident and compiles an entire list of warnings for the sake of her 'son's' safety. The video titled "Your mom calling you to warn you about things" has resonated with children as well as parents on TikTok. Many adult children shared how their parents still worry about them, even though they are not kids anymore.

We live in Texas." @username22551234 shared, "I started a new job last month and my mom called to tell me to go to bed at a decent hour since I will have a long first day. I’m 46 years old." @girlchristiktok quipped, "My grandma cuts out physical newspaper articles about things that might happen within 100 miles of where I live and she mails them to me." @sexmormon added, "My mom's group texted her six adult children, reminding us not to stare directly at the eclipse."
According to The Daily Orange, the Micho brothers shared how their comedy is mostly inspired by relatable real-life events. "I always heard that comedy has to come from truth in some regard. We found that’s true," Ryan said. Both the brothers, who are television, radio and film students at Syracuse University, made sure that even within all the skits they perform while getting inspired by real scenarios, "making them funny is always the priority."
Coming back to the actual video, the moms aren't entirely wrong for worrying about their kids all the time due to the random acts of crime and violence that keep happening around the world with every passing minute. They want to protect their kids from harm's way and do not care about the manner in which they express it.
