A company called Cut Video has created what may be the most viral pot-smoking video of all time. Just one day after its release, it had been viewed over 7 million times.
“We found three grandmas who had never smoked pot and gave them an opportunity to try it for the first time. Then we gave them snacks and had them play Cards Against Humanity,” reads the description of “Grandmas Smoking Weed for the First Time.”
Cut Video, the production company behind the viral sensation, wants you to know “No grandmas were harmed in the making of this video.” They did it voluntarily out of curiosity, for the sake of Art, and snacks.
The video was filmed in Washington state, where cannabis has been legalized.
Mike Gaston, who works for Cut Video, spoke to Fast Company about their inspiration.
“With the national debate on the legalization of marijuana, we thought, Let’s try something that reflects on the absurdity of some of these legacy laws. And, that’s how grandmas smoking weed happened.”
