Viral Video: Grandpa Accidentally Records His Own Reaction During Grandson’s Proposal by Jessica Acree

3 years ago

An adorable grandpa, trying to capture his grandson’s marriage proposal, makes an honest mistake and it is pure gold! The video, shared by Scary Mommy, shows the camera flipped the wrong way the entire time. Instead of filming the couple, he accidentally records his own candid reaction. It’s so good! I dare you not to smile!

Grandpa completely forgets about holding the phone, taking it all in with a huge smile sprinkled with heart-warming laughter. You even catch a glimpse of his Mariners baseball hat, which is flipped to the back too, of course. It's all just too charming.

At the end you hear him say, “...give her that ring and give her the biggest smile man! Woo-hoo!”

They all laugh, as the grandson realizes what happened. Grandpa even hollers, "You turkey!”

The priceless video now serves as a bonus memory from an already unforgettable day. The grandfather’s excitement over the big moment is forever frozen in time. He’s now everyone’s grandpa, making us all feel a moment of true joy just as pure.
