12-year-old Daniel was home alone when he heard a noise upstairs, so he did what any smart teenager would do — took out his phone to record, just in case he was about to square up with a ghost. He approached the stairs and sang "If you came here to kill me, clap your hands" and to his surprise, something upstairs clapped. Next thing he knew he was taking off down the street, running quite literally for his life. We're sure you'll be relieved to hear this was all a setup for a funny video, and his mom was the one upstairs clapping. This video has been circling the internet, earning parodies from comedians like iamzoie, and now we have Daniel and his mom Jackie with us via Skype to tell us all about it!
