A husband's hilarious video shows the exact moment his wife realises why she is never able to turn off a ceiling light in their home – and it's been viewed more than 1.2 million times.

TikTok user Tatertot_xx posted a video as he films a large rectangular light above their staircase and asks: "That light never goes out. Why?"

His wife then angrily insists that none of the light switches in the home are connected to it, flicking the switches on the wall to demonstrate her point.

She then marches her husband to the ground floor insisting: "Go try all those downstairs, I swear to God, it doesn't go out."

She was baffled as to why none of the light switches were working

After watching her few other switches, her husband then decides it's gone on long enough and breaks the news by gently telling her: "Babe, it's a skylight."

He explains that what she has been trying to turn off is the sun, as she stands on the stairs staring at the celing and asks: "So there's a hole cut out on the roof for that?"

She walks away as her husband asks "Feel stupid?", to which she simply replies: "Yeah, I do."

It racked up thousands of comments as people asked if she has never lived in the house past 7pm, with her partner replying to say: "She said 'Well it goes off at night but I never turn it off so wtf'."

The clip left people in stitches as one commented: "Do people not know what a sunlight is?"

A second wrote: "It's just a night light that was wired backwards."

A third said: "I felt her mind expand when she looked up."

Another joked: "To be fair the sun could really use a switch."

And someone else admitted: "Not gonna lie, the house I'm in now has one of these and it took me a couple days to figure it out."
