Frances Horvat died on Dec. 16, and in her memory, her grandson went to a place not so traditional.
Brian Chismar had filmed his grandmother back in 2005 riding on a virtual roller coaster. Frances was partnered with Brian’s other grandmother, Millie Chismar.
Three days after Frances’ death, Brian, a Kent State freshman, posted the roller coaster ride on YouTube.
Two weeks later, the video has caught some momentum with the help of some links to other sites, and now has about 250,000 views.
The ladies are quite humorous over the 90-second ride.
You can search for it under “greenscreen grandmas” on YouTube, or click here.
