Gran's Hilarious Curse-Ridden Clothing Blunder Goes Viral, Viewed Over 10M Times

A grandmother has gone viral after her granddaughter shared her hilarious mistake when it came to her clothing choices.

After putting on what she thought were simple pinstripe pants, the grandmother was shocked to learn they were filled with expletives—not quite family-friendly attire.

"My nana thought these pants were pinstriped," said the text-to-speech generator in granddaughter Chelsea's video.

The video zoomed in on the pants, revealing them to say the phrase "f**k you" repeated along it instead.

"No, they say 'f**k you,' mom," an off-camera voice can be heard saying, as the grandmother had just one response: "Oh my god."

In just three days, the video has gained over 10 million views at the time of publication, and over 1.3 million likes. Celebrities including Chelsea Handler and Shark Tank's Barbara Corcoran even got in on the action, leaving comments on the video. "Whoopsiedoodle," commented Handler.

Granddaughter Chelsea confirmed in a follow-up video that the leggings weren't actually purchased by her grandmother, which is how she ended up not knowing what they really said. "The leggings were not purchased by my nana. My aunt who passed away purchased them, because that's just how her personality was, and when she passed away my nana took some of her clothes and she genuinely didn't know what they said."

The pants were purchased from the site RedBubble, but despite Chelsea's attempts, she was unable to gain a discount code for inspired viewers to use.

"I'm really getting emotional about this," said granddaughter Chelsea on going viral in a follow-up video. "I'm having a hard time believing it."

"This was pure luck. My nana is just a gem of a person," she added.

Viewers were entertained by the clothing mistake, rushing to share their joy in the comments. "Stylin and wildin," commented one user.

"Time for new glasses," added another.

Just last month, another grandmother went viral online, gaining over 5 million views on TikTok. Shelby Hoefling shared a video of her grandmother, known as "Nanny," to her account, documenting her heartwarming reaction to receiving tickets to see the Rockettes.

In the video, the grandmother recounted her experience seeing them for the first time at 12 years old, only to then be told that she has tickets to see them live again.

"No! No!" the TikToker's grandmother exclaimed. "Did you really? I can't believe that!"

After going viral, the Rockettes' official TikTok account shared a video of the performers meeting Hoefling and her grandmother on the night of the show outside the building, all taking a photo together.
