This is the hilarious moment a little boy turns his spinning sofa into ‘the waltzers’ during a break from home schooling.
Footage shows five-year-old Joey Brookes stood upright on the grey, circular sofa with his hands pressed against the wall at home in Rugby, Warwickshire.
The youngster then jogs on the spot as fast as possible sending the chair spinning like a roundabout, to the delight of little brother Reggie, three.

Little Reggie is curled up on the bottom of the seat, squealing for the makeshift theme park ride to go faster.
In a second clip, the youngster spins his brother round again, and the duo shriek with laughter.
Joey then jumps down to join his brother, after building up enough momentum for the pair to enjoy together.
Their mother Jenna’s funny video has been viewed more than two million times since being uploaded to TikTok.

Distribution manager Jenna, 35, said: ‘The boys are just wild when they’re not at school.
‘As Joey is diagnosed autistic and I’m a key worker he still attends school but we carry on his learning at the weekends, which can take its toll.
‘When Joey doesn’t go to school and is out of his usual routine, he has too much energy and does things like this.’
Mother Jenna, who uploaded the video, said: ‘Joey and Reggie love playing together and they have a fantastic relationship with each other’
She added that her son ‘doesn’t speak so he’s very sensory driven’ and the spinning helps.
She said: ‘Joey and Reggie love playing together and they have a fantastic relationship with each other.
‘Joey throws all the cushions off and Reggie will climb on board and sit there and shout at him to go. Joey will just go full pelt then until they get bored or tired.

‘They’ve been playing this game for about three months now. It always makes me laugh. If Reggie isn’t around, Joey will spin the chair and then sit on it himself.
‘They’re boys and they’re young and they’re having fun. That’s all that matters. I’ll get my house back together when they move out!’
The boy’s mother uploaded the video, where it has delighted social media users, reminding them of fun times at the fair.
One commenter said: ‘He would walk the waltzers no problem.’
Another added: ‘I only noticed halfway through there’s another child in there. Reminded me of waltzers at fair when they spun so fast, g force kept you in.’
Other commenters said they thought Joey’s game counted towards his home-schooling, with one joking: ‘At least that’s PE done.’
