In YouTube Right Now, the Daily Dot looks at videos that catch our eyes, push our buttons, and move our dials—and that you’ve just got to watch. Right now!
Put three grandmas in a YouTube video and it's a hit within a week. Put those grannies in front of Kim Kardashian's sex tape and they're a hit within a day.
That's what YouTuber Hugh Herman found out on Monday after his video of three sweet old ladies watching pop mongo-star Kim Kardashian sex tape with ex-boyfriend Ray J went online. In less than 24 hours on the site, it's already received over 100,000 views.
Frankly, these ladies deserve the attention. Their performances should be applauded and commended. It takes a hip granny to get down with a sex tape, and these three are about as cool as a 1940s Miles Davis.
But these golden girls might come with a doily-studded caveat. Soon after reaching its 100,000 view clip, speculation began to mount that Herman and the grannies were working off a loose-form script, or that all parties involved are in on the joke.
“This is programming,” wrote ctroncoa in the video’s comments. “Be careful.”
“Why are 3 grandmas just sitting around talking about the Kardashians? seems a little suspicious to me,” wrote express16a18m.
Herman, who made the video but has remained slightly anonymous save for a few A-list cold calls (Tosh.0, Conan, Jimmy Fallon), has not returned the Daily Dot's request for comment.
Here's hoping he's not busy plotting out this video's sequel, “Three Old Guys watch Paris Hilton.”
