Italian grandmother struggles to use Google Home device

A grandmother gifted a Google Home device for Christmas got to grips with her new gadget over the holidays and a video of her strained attempts to control the device, through her thick Italian accent, has gone viral online.

In the video, Maria Actis’ family gathered around her as she repeated “Hey Goo Goo” over and over again, having no success in getting a response from the Google Home gadget. Finally, after asking about the weather, Actis finally gets a reply which causes her to jump out of her chair and say “I’m scared, it’s a mystery. Oh my gosh,” much to her family’s delight.

Ben Actis captured a video of his grandmother and shared it online, where it soon blew up. The Actis family have Ben’s girlfriend, Becky Siegel, to thank for the funny moment as she gave Ben’s grandmother the device for Christmas.
