A hilarious video shows a dog owner laughing as his pooch slips on ice at a park, but it turns out the joke is on the man (watch below).

YouTube user Dan Chamberlain posted the video on Saturday. The description says it was taken at McGolrick Park in Brooklyn, New York.

The man behind the camera, presumably Chamberlain, laughs as his adorable dog, wearing special winter weather booties, slips on a patch of ice on a snowy walkway.

Mere seconds later, the chuckling man slips on the exact same patch of ice himself, crashing to the ground.

The dog scurries away and the man has nothing to do but laugh at himself.

Whether you call it serendipity, instant karma or poetic justice, it makes for one funny viral video.
