When you put Snapchat Spectacles on children, the results are simply adorable.

Paper towel maker Brawny and its agency Cutwater created a spot by putting Snapchat Spectacles on toddlers and  letting the film roll. The scenes show bloodied knees, puddles of paint, little hands being washed and spilled milk—all with mom coming to the rescue.

The spot is Brawny’s tribute to moms this Mother’s Day, May 14. The short film supports Brawny’s “Stay Giant” tagline, which debuted in 2015, and by using Snapchat Spectacles technology depicts the moms and “giants” coming to the aid of their children.
