‘I asked him if he wanted to try on my clothes. He said “yes”, tried them on and looked super cool,’ said Jannik.

‘We took some pictures, uploaded them and everyone loved it. Since Gramps enjoyed taking pictures and felt comfortable, we kept it up and never stopped.

‘It’s great to be able to spend so much time with Gramps. He’s a cool guy and it’s always fun to take photos of him.

‘Before Covid, we used to travel a lot for work and I really liked that. Visiting new places whilst having a great time with Gramps is super cool.

‘We posted the pictures of Gramps because he looked cool. When the first big Instagram page reposted one of the pictures, we reached the one-thousand follower mark and we were surprised then.

‘It’s great to see that Gramps can entertain and inspire so many people by simply enjoying himself.

‘At first, he didn’t understand his Instagram fame because he wasn’t too deep into social media.

‘Now, he loves being recognised on the streets and is always happy when someone asks for a selfie with him. He definitely enjoys being famous.

‘We’ve always been super close. When I was a child, Gramps used to pick me up once a week after school.

‘We used to play table tennis, football and other stuff. We’ve definitely grown even closer now that we have our shared hobby.
