(RNN) - A supposed outtake from a European ad campaign is gaining traction online for the genuine joy of its subject - a grandmother taking her first ride on a roller coaster.

The YouTube video shows 70-year-old "nan" Ria Van den Brand bursting with laughter as she experiences the "twists and turns" of the amusement park staple.

"Here we go!" she says.

The spot is part of a campaign entitled Firsts by London-based Vodafone. As the name implies, people are given the chance to do something they have never done before, be it flying on a plane, calling home or riding a wave.

Van den Brand's emotion looks authentic. If not, it's an Academy Award-worthy acting job.

"I dare you to watch this and not smile … what an awesome #firsts!" commenter Jeremy Reger wrote.

Everyone's new favorite grandma closes the ride by making sure she still looks good for the camera.

"Is my hair still OK?" she asks.
