MCMINNVILLE – A McMinnville couple is getting more computer savvy, all because of a silly video that shows how frustrating it can be to learn to use a webcam.

Bruce and Esther Huffman accidentally recorded themselves trying to set up a new computer. Their granddaughter thought the video was so funny, she shared it on YouTube and titled it, “Webcam 101 for Seniors.

It quickly went viral and they got calls from national television shows wanting to interview them about it.

KGW also called, and despite the couple’s previous struggles with their computer, they figured out how to use their webcam for Skype. They talked live with anchors Russ Lewis and Brenda Braxton during KGW’s noon newscast.

The silly and self-described “frisky” couple said they weren’t embarrassed by anything in the video.

“We’re married, isn’t it okay to be frisky?” he asked Brenda.

They said they have been married 92 months and celebrate every month.

When asked about their “secret” to a healthy marriage, Bruce planted a big kiss on Esther during the live interview and said they celebrate every month.
