Ross Smith was in college at the University of Dayton when he first started putting out content in the form of six-second videos on Vine. Although he amassed a sizable following on his own, one particular video featuring his grandmother, Pauline "Granny" Kana, hit all the right notes for internet users. The pair was comedic gold and soon became a notable name in social media circles. "My brand just turned into me and Granny taking over the world,"
Today, Ross and Granny have over 2.6 million followers on Instagram and a whopping 11 million on Facebook.
Speaking of what makes Smith and Granny's pairing such a hit, 9GAG’s head of sales and business development, Russell Schneider said: "Ross is like a young man next door. It's very rare for us to see a grandmother and grandson grow close and have fun with each other like BFFs. It's this cross-generational BFF relationship that makes them so special." While being a viral sensation does have its perks, for Granny, the most valuable part of the experience is being around her grandson and learning about him throughout the process.
