I know I’ve battled and failed to get my teenage kids to change the loo roll when it’s run out so I’m not surprised this video has gone viral as it’s so funny in a deadpan sort of way!

Will Reid has used social media to shame his kids into changing the loo roll and it has been an enormous success as the video went instantly viral 🙂

Will Reid posted the video titled “Teenage Instructional Video – How to change a toilet roll” out of frustration when his kids constantly failed to do the honours when they reached the end of the toilet roll.

The video is a hilariously straightforward account of how to replace the cardboard tube with another. That’s it.

“The advanced level would be to put the empty toilet roll holder in the bin,” he says in the clip.

“But I feel that might be a step too far at the moment.” (I just love this bit soooooo true ! )

But when his story was found online the video became an instant sensation, and in two days has received almost 200,000 views.

Reid has Reddit to thank for his newfound fame – a link posted on the site is behind his sudden rise in views.

I wonder what his next video will be about …. how to put crisp packets in the waste paper bin?
