Mum's take on The Matrix goes viral

A man's video of his 65-year-old mother trying to explain the plot of sci-fi classic The Matrix is proving a surprise viral hit.

More than 2.2 million people have so far watched the three minute clip, entitled The Matrix Retold by Mum, on YouTube.

"My mom hadn't seen or heard of the Wachowski's classic sci-fi film The Matrix," explained filmmaker Joe Nicolosi, of Austin, Texas.

"We watched the entire movie together and right after she told me what it was all about."

Joe's mum begins: "The movie starts with a young woman who has superpowers. The woman has excellent judo, jumping and flying skills."

Despite referring to Keanu Reeves' character as Leo and turning Morpheus into Moshimoshe did identify Neo as 'the one who can beat out the Matrix'.
