Aly and her adorable but fearful parents, Lynn and Rick, appeared on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on Wednesday to talk about Raisman's achievements as well as their reactions to her competing.
Let's not forget how they looked when the 22-year-old competed in the beam, bar and floor events.
If that's not the look of pure fear, then I don't know what is.
DeGeneres is known for her excellent pranks, and she didn't hold back on Lynn, Rick and Aly.
While her parents were telling DeGeneres what was going through their minds as their daughter competed, a man dressed up as an athlete tip-toed quietly (he wasn't wearing shoes) up to the Raismans and screamed.
It wasn't quite like a "Boo!" kind of scream, but it was enough to somewhat recreate the terrified looks on Lynn and Rick's faces during the Olympics.
Of course, Aly herself was barely fazed at all.
I hope DeGeneres learned it's going to take a lot more than some shoeless man in workout clothes to scare this Olympic gymnast.
The prank gave us a good laugh. But can't we give Rick and Lynn a break? They've already been through enough.
