When Ross Smith started making Vine videos while in college seven years ago, he probably never imagined he would win a Social Media Entertainers Of The Year award. The thought definitely never crossed the mind of his now-93-year-old grandmother, Pauline “Granny” Kana, when she was working in a bomb factory during World War II. But that is exactly what the unlikely duo has accomplished together to the delight of millions.
With over 900,000 YouTube subscribers, 2.7 million Instagram followers, and 9.5 million Facebook followers, this grandmother and grandson are making the world a better place by putting smiles on people’s faces.
Going Viral In Style
The BFF couple began their Internet shenanigans when a Vine video of Granny blocking a basketball shot exploded everywhere online. The two quickly realized they may have stumbled across something magical and have been producing content together ever since. They are best known for their adorable staged photoshoots dressed in various parody costumes of movies or holiday events.There seems to be nothing off-limits for this tag-team in search for a good laugh. All the effort has seemed to keep Granny in great condition for her age.
Spending Quality Time Together
Ross and Granny particularly have fun making videos for their Youtube channel. In addition to staging Grandma’s trick shots and public pranks, the duo likes to film comedy sketches and mini-documentaries of Grandma embracing life as a nonagenarian. They also have fun attending large conventions like ComicCon to capture footage of Granny trolling the unsuspecting attendees.
Their feed isn’t only about the laughs though. They like to warm peoples’ hearts as well, like when they visited a local assisted living facility and children’s hospital with arms full of puppies for Thanksgiving.
Granny also likes to share quick updates highlighting some of the great life wisdom she’s gained in her 90+ years on earth as well as just letting everyone know she’s still going strong like the Energizer Bunny.
Ross and Granny’s work together has earned them commercial opportunities and meetups with celebrities like Chuck Norris and Olympian Shawn Johnson. They have also appeared on news programs, TV shows and have even been invited to movie premieres like Going In Style starring Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, and Alan Arkin.
Making Every Moment Count

From sharing laughs to international vacations the pair are showing how real friendships can be forged regardless of age differences.With a grandma as cool as Granny, it is no wonder that Ross wants to maximize as much time as he can spend with her and all of their documented photos and videos will be cherished memories for years to come.
