    to the people asking why he doesn't buy her a house, you'll find that she is the one who doesn't want to move. I'm sure he has offered, but for some old people,especially old black people here in SA are set in their ways, they feel what they have is enough and success is watching their children prosper not moving in to a mansion. My gran is the same, you can never make her leave that house and don't you dare try and change it lol.

    In a capitalistic, consumer-driven society we equate buying to happiness. Thus, we think oh let me buy my family this mansion and they will be happy and I will not feel guilty for not being around them at all. This mindset is so ingrained in us that when we reach success we have to go and buy something. When we are exposed to other culture who has little in ways of material things in contrast to us but they're genuinely happy, we are truly shocked and have an existential crisis.

    Trevor: I'm a manager of white people GogoGrandma: It must be from your mother#Priceless

    or his fathers side. i mean, swiss. they are so natural at managing and organizing. maybe what made him fall for his mother, that she was good at that too :)

  • Victor Anokwuru (5 days ago)

    that got to me lol

  • Micah Blalock (Jan 3, 2019)

    So refreshing... I love that you're so grounded, Trevor! From the start of the video, it was clear that your grandmother was more important to you than the audience... Thank you for modeling for us what it looks like to truly love and honor one's family. I celebrate your success, and am thankful that you shared this moment with me.

    +tramsfetz welp, scurry over to those videos. 😂😂😂✌✌✌✌

  • tramsfetz (48 minutes ago)

    Amelia Louisa Yeah, i do now it is comedy. I also know the Argument you re trying to make, it doesn't work in this context. I like segments where hosts go abroad (colbert Russia, Conan isreal, Gaza, Finnland,....) I just didn't think this one was funny, or professional, for the reasons i already stated. Also comedy needs to be professional, there is a reason this is unprecedented, you just don't do it.Also: you should be the one chilling.

    Trevor; "but I told them I was an apartheid hero"Grandma; laughs*Priceless scene😂😂😂

  • Wieme Mo (Jan 4, 2019)

  • ralton damons (2 days ago)

    Yip, humor is a defence mechanism used while growing up during apartheid

  • RG Fleuridor (5 days ago)

    I feel like black people are just funny...she reminds me of my Haitian grandma

  • Lily Rose (Dec 5, 2018)

    Those fruit magnets.... they transcend country (and even continent) lines 😂Funny enough, I've never actually seen them being sold, tho!

  • Elinore Koenigsfeld (1 day ago)

    This is cute, the comment and replies. Reminded me of buying them--in the supermarket, in Israel, putting them on the 'fridge. Once the children put one like a watermelon slice on my plate with real ones and thought it was SO funny when I tried to spear it with my fork. I loved this video, too, enjoy Trevor so much on You Tube. He's a real mench (Yiddish for good person, good heart.)

  • A Fangirls Sobs (Feb 6, 2019)

    i think as soon as you become a grandmother you receive them haha

  • Alexis Zambrano (Jan 22, 2019)

    Lucky you that your grandmother is alive and healthy. I loss my grandmother few days ago and I miss her so much. Wish my grandmother be alive. Enjoy every moment with ur grandmother.

  • BreeBrii (Jan 28, 2019)

    Obviously I don't know him personally, but Trevor seems like such a beautiful person.

  • Theresa Taylor (Jan 28, 2019)

    Oh what a blessing to have your grandmother at 91 and 9 months. She is so beautiful.

  • Nia Pgn (Jan 2, 2019)
