Meet Vinita Khilnani, a comedy content creator and the person behind the viral (and hilarious) video called "How our parents used to take pictures".
BuzzFeed spoke to the Los Angeles-based Vinita about her idea and how it materialised. She told us about her love for physical comedy and being able to tell a story without dialogue. "Laughter is a universal language and what better way to bring everyone together globally?" she said.
"Since the pandemic, I have been spending more time at home and this has allowed me to write more sketches and create more fun characters. I also took this opportunity to spend more time with my parents and get to know them better," she added while speaking about her incredibly supportive immigrant parents.
"I have enjoyed hearing stories about their childhood, their experiences being immigrants in America, and rediscovering their memories through a forgotten medium for the modern age — actual photo albums. What struck me was how the poses were so different from those of today, so I decided to poke some fun and recreate those poses through a modern medium — Instagram. The rest is, as they say, history," Vinita explained.
Well, if this doesn't remind you of a photograph of your mom from the good old days, I don't know what does.
Here's the fantastic video in question. Isn't this straight out of an old photo album of your parents?
And here's a bonus part 2! BRB, showing this to my parents!
