The infamous Three Golden Sisters, the grandmas who went viral on YouTube for their reaction video to Kim Kardashian‘s sex tape, are back and better than ever. This time they’re reading and discussing the wildly erotic Fifty Shades of Grey, and frankly, they don’t see what the fuss is about.
To start with, they’re reading off a Kindle or an iPad, which already makes for a hilarious moment mid-video when it shuts off and they can’t figure out how to turn it back on…but the real humor comes in their dramatic readings of the text, and the moments they have to stop and question each other about the meaning of what they’re reading. And bear in mind that these ladies are legit grandmas — Mary is 81-years old and the twins, Josie and Theresa, are 72. Which makes it even more hilarious as they ask each other what ‘butt plugs’ are. (They didn’t come up with an answer.)
Mostly, though, they were concerned for the welfare of Anastasia and her…ladyparts. Probably the most common word in this video is ‘ouch’ — ‘Never do anything that hurts,’ is the first line of advice from Theresa, while Mary calls the book and its events ‘ridiculous’. After trying to puzzle out one passage, they say, “Oh he whipped her! Oh my god!…That’s crazy. Nobody can hit me hard.” They are especially put off by the contracts that Christian Grey draws up for his relationship with Anastasia, however:
“Did you read the stupid contracts?
No acts involving fire. Yeah well, of course not.
No acts involving urination…ugh.
No acts that involve the direct contact of electric current — oh thanks a lot. Who does this? Does anyone in the world do that?”
I love these ladies for going there. I love that they’re willing to read this strange, hypersexual book and admit that they have no idea what women see in it, because I tend to agree with them. I was tempted to read it just to see what all the fuss is about, but I think the Golden Sisters officially cured me of my curiosity when they said the sentence, “What’s vaginal fisting? Oh that hurts — oh she’s crazy.”
