This goes along with the idea that old people using iPhones makes them less cool. [iPhones Are Not Cool Anymore.] However since YouTube us a Google product somehow it had the opposite effect here. This video of this elderly couple crack my up. They are too funny.
Sometimes the best kind of viral video is one that’s a complete accident. That’s what happened when an elderly Oregon couple tried to take a picture of themselves using their new laptop’s webcam. Instead, however, they unwittingly recorded a hilarious video of themselves (scroll down to see the whole video). In it, 86-year old Bruce Huffman burps, makes faces, and shamelessly flirts with his 79-year-old wife Esther who ignores him while she tries to figure out how to take a photo. Esther was especially perplexed when she saw an error message pop up that read, “‘warning you must stop recording before trying to close.’” Esther went on to say, “Gee but I don’t know what I’m recording. Shucks.” For one fleeting moment, Bruce almost figured out what was going on when he sais, “maybe it’s recording us?” Unfortunately instead of exploring that possibility they moved on to another topic: their wrinkles. Apparently, their granddaughter had tried to teach the charming couple how to use the webcam. When the granddaughter was on the new computer a few days later, she found the funny video and posted it to YouTube. The Huffmans are now Internet sensations. Not only has their video been viewed more than 2 million times, but they’ve appeared on several television news shows. They aren’t the first couple to accidentally record themselves. Earlier this year, a video of elderly couple Rita and Frank doing the exact same thing got nearly 1.5 million views on YouTube. I can’t decide which video’s better! What do you think?
