Daniel O'Donnell and Majella Trying To Set Up A Livestream Is Every Irish Family

We can't lie - we were absolutely howling at this video.

If your life has been anything like ours in the last couple of weeks, you've had more Zoom and FaceTime and video calls than you ever thought possible. While it's been a lovely way to connect during these difficult times, when things go back to normal, we hope to never have to sit and watch for ten minutes as our parents struggle with not being able to see their faces show up on screen.

That's why we couldn't help but laugh when we saw this video of Daniel O'Donnell and his wife Majella having a complete 'mare while trying to start a live stream on Facebook.

The video begins with Daniel looking into the camera saying "Are we on there? Can you hear us? I don't see any messages coming up or anything."

A voice can be heard in the background on the phone telling them that they're not yet live, and Majella comes into view.

Chaos ensues as the well-known pair try their best to figure it out. It's honestly like looking at our parents on Zoom.

Twitter user @shane_reaction shared the video on Twitter yesterday and it has since gained a huge reaction, with 1.2k retweets and 8.2k likes on the video so far.

Other Twitter users were quick to react to the video, with one person saying that it feels like "the whole of lockdown was building up to this point".

We don't know about you, but Daniel and Majella have certainly given us the belly laugh we needed today.
