Man goes viral pranking his grandma by telling her crazy GTA gameplay is actually the news

Man goes viral pranking his grandma by telling her crazy GTA gameplay is actually the news

She had the purest reaction.

You've got to hand it to the devs at Rockstar Games - the graphics of Grand Theft Auto are always on point.

And one TikToker really used that to his advantage, much to the horror of an unsuspecting grandma.

Jordan Bianchi (@jordanbianchi2 on TikTok) played some wild GTA scenes on the TV, and told his grandma it was actually the news.

Despite the animated footage showing a vehicle flying through the air and knocking over some people on the sidewalk, as well as another car flipping over multiple times in mid-air before landing back down and driving away, the grandma seems to think it's real life.

And her face really says it all - she is absolutely shocked at what’s taking place in front of her.

The video, which was uploaded to TikTok on Thanksgiving, currently has a whopping 15.5 million views and 2.4 million likes.

The rest of the family play along, also acting shocked, shouting “Oh my God” and gasping.

The poor grandma had no idea it was a video game.

Users flooded to the comments, with some sharing similar stories.

One TikToker commented: “One time my dad watched an an entire game of nba 2k thinking it was real", while another said: "My grandpa watched me play r2d2 for hours until he found out it was a video game. Then, wildly enough, he played at almost 100 years old."

Many people in the comments had the same reaction: what on Earth will this grandma think when GTA VI finally comes out?

"Grandma ain’t ready for gta 6," one wrote, and another commented: "Her head is gonna explode when she sees GTA 6 graphics."

The trailer for the new game dropped earlier this week - ahead of schedule after a leak.

"Our trailer has leaked so please watch the real thing on YouTube," Rockstar wrote on Twitter.

And fans already can't believe how Rockstar has managed to level up the animation.

The new game is set in Vice City - based on Miami - and a former Rockstar developer posted a YouTube video breaking down just how impressive all the work that's gone into the game really is.

"It's not just a bigger city, everything in the city is expanded on - and what I mean by that is there's more people, there's more cars, there's more plant life, there's more animals, there's more hair on each character," Mike York said.

"Every single thing has been reworked and developed and pushed."

With the game scheduled to come out in 2025, we have a few years until we know how this grandma will react to the improved graphics. Until then, we can only hope for a follow-up video seeing her reaction to being told it was actually video game.
