Grandma Begins Argument With New Google Home, Hilarious Response Quickly Goes Viral
Marilyn Caylor 1/9/2018
Google is known for creating two major advances in technology that have forever changed our lives. Of course, the most obvious piece of technology is the search engine itself. The second piece of technology that moved Google and the smartphone world into the 21st century was its Android-based operating system.
Now, Google is taking over our homes - quite literally, in fact - with their 'Google Home' device. For people who haven't been able to keep up with the new digital age, it seems to work like magic! However, one adorable grandmother is testing her not-so-magical patience when she tries to play with this fun new toy.
In the video, we can see this Italian granny treat Google Home like she would her teenage granddaughter's first date - she grills it with question after question. But, she does it in such a cute way! Granny lovingly holds the home assistant in her hand and makes eye contact with it, just like she would with a real person.
When grandpa interrupts her "conversation" and asks her what this thing is, she just looks at him with an exasperated expression before getting back to business with her new friend. Yet, at this point, her buddy hasn't said one single word to her.
To get Google Home's attention, you're supposed to say "Hey Google" or "Okay Google" but this granny tries to get its attention just like you would with a baby. When her hilarious "Goo Goos" are ignored, she starts to get very animated with it.
When that doesn't work, grandma decides to play nice, and leans in so that she's close enough to practically kiss it. In a low, soothing voice, she whispers "Heyyyy Google." No response. Uh oh, poor Google has now activated the "very Italian" part of this grandmother, and she screams "Okay Google" with great annoyance, as if it were the last breathe she was ever going to take.
When granny finally asked Google a very easy question - what the weather would be like tomorrow - a sweet female voice filled the air and finally spoke to her. Grandma stood up in shock and exclaimed that this thing was a complete mystery!
After grandma picked her jaw up off the floor, she tried to get Google to play an Italian song for her. Instead she somehow managed to get the device to tell her what the temperature was in London, England. Ha ha, oh dear!
This granny is absolutely hilarious with how she "deals" with her new home assistant. Check out the video to see the rest of her funny interactions. Before long, you'll be saying "Goo Goo" and "Hey okay" just like this Italian cutie!
