This is the hilarious moment two elderly grandparents try to use Siri on their new iPhone for the first time - discovering the Bohemian Rhapsody prank.

The grandmother dictates a line of the 1975 Queen hit to Siri who then replies with the rest of the verse.  

Initially, the grandmother asks the digital assistant what the weather is going to be like in the city of Ashville, North Carolina.

The grandmother, who is from Ashville, North Carolina is impressed by Siri

The husband, who is called Ray, soon interrupts, claiming ‘I don’t think she heard you’. 

He then asks, ‘you called her Sherry?’

At one stage, he appears to ask Siri to call '911'.  

The wife replies: ‘No, I called her Siri.’ The husband then asks his wife to spell the name, which she does. Unimpressed, he walks out of shot.

When Siri eventually replies, the grandmother starts laughing, claiming ‘that’s so funny’. 

Soon, the grandmother advances her skills quite rapidly by asking: ‘Sir, I see the silhouette of a man,’ to which the phone replies, ‘Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the Fandango, thunderbolt and lightning, very, very frightening me.' 

The grandmother continues laughing claiming playing with Siri is very funny.  

But, Grandfather Ray, left, looks less than impressed by the digital assistant
