Old people and technology!

There's no denying that the Internet age and massive increase in our use of technologies can create something of a gap between generations. This video definitely exemplifies that as an elderly couple attempt to take a birthday photo on their computer. Watch and see how they do.

"Did you hear a click?"

The YouTube video was posted by "espo633" who writes about the hilarious couple, "Rita and Frank try to take a still photo to email to friends for Frank's 84th Birthday on their new Mac" of the hilarious couple.



Well, a happy belated 84th birthday to you, Frank! You and your wife may not have been successful in taking that photo, but are on your way to becoming viral video stars with this adorable clip.
