A TikTok user whose grandfather died a month ago shared heartwarming video clips that they made together before his death. 

The Chinese Canadian user, @esafung, posted two clips in one video where he teaches his grandparents English phrases. In the first clip, he teaches his grandparents how to pronounce “hospital.” In the second clip, the user teaches his grandparents the explicit phrase “wet ass p*ssy,” made popular by rapper Cardi B in her 2020 hit song of the same name, without explaining its meaning. 

The video is captioned, “My grandpa passed away last month on my birthday, and unfortunately these were the only tiktoks I made with him. Rest in peace grandpa, I love you and miss you.”
