The video shows a toddler and a poodle watching mom as she carries a crockpot from the kitchen to the living room. After she sets it down and stands back up, though, her hair bun has caught fire. She doesn’t seem to notice, but her toddler does and after he says “Hot Mommy hair!”, she was able to put it out without it spreading.
