MCMINNVILLE -- Attempts by an elderly McMinnville to learn how to use the video camera on their new computer has become a YouTube viral sensation.

Bruce and Esther Huffman can be seen peering into the lens of their camera as they try to learn its video operation.

Bruce make a series of gestures, faces and teases Esther throughout. Then, she seems to get a little frustrated he's not taking the training session seriously enough. He even gets a bit "frisky" as the couple clowns around.

The episode was saved to the computer and uploaded by their daughter.

The couple has been featured on national morning talk shows and an ever increasing worldwide presence as the funny story of the day.

They also did a live interview with KGW via Skype during the noon newscast that had the anchors giggling.
