Meet Kit Connell, the 100-year-old Nintendo playing grandma who is about to take the viral video world by storm.
Her secret to staying young at her age has nothing to do with her diet, vitamin supplements or daily exercise.
It's her red Nintendo DS and the dozen (or so) games she owns, including Scrabble, Art Academy and Brain Training.
I am just 100 years old, and I don't feel a day over 80. I keep very good health, I try to keep my brain active by playing on my Nintendo, Connell recently told The Telegraph.
In the video interview, which The Telegraph posted on Monday, the East Renfrewshire, Scotland resident explains that she received a Nintendo DS as a present from her daughter, who bought it on the Internet.
Connell, who just turned 100 on Friday, spends her days playing Nintendo DS for a couple hours, with tea breaks in between. She recently scored a mental age of 64 on Brain Training, a puzzle game related to Brain Age.
I much prefer to be using my brain. And I find I am very forgetful, I can't remember things the next day. So I try to do these and it really is helping, she said.
The grandmother of one would also like to see the Nintendo DS used in the classroom.
I would suggest that the children have this at school, instead of playing games. To do the math and the spelling. It would be wonderful, according to Connell.
From being dubbed as Britain's oldest gamer to the Nintendo Queen, Connell and her Nintendo DS video will surely be making the rounds on Twitter, Facebook and other social networking sites in the coming days.
I can't speak highly enough of this Nintendo . . . it's absolutely super. I don't know what I'd do without it, Connell said.
