Grandparents make the ultimate best friends: They love and support you, regale you with stories of their lives, and dish the dirt on your parents.

One grandson doesn’t just commit to the weekly visit or a sporadic phone call to his beloved gran, he spends most of his time with her.

Social media legend Ross Smith, 27, has become besties with his 93-year-old grandmother, Pauline Kana, and they now dress up in hilarious matching costumes.

They cover all the holidays including Thanksgiving, when the pair dressed as a turkey and pilgrim.

For former Christmasses, they’ve gone for a tree and lumberjack, Santa Claus and Rudolph, and many other festive costumes.

You’ll also catch the besties with their own take on Hollywood blockbusters such as Marvel’s Avengers, Gladiators and animated faves like Up, Toy Story and more.

The pair rose to fame when Ross filmed a clip in which Grandma Pauline blocked a basketball shot.

That was seven years ago and now the cute duo has amassed 892,000 Youtube subscribers and millions of followers on Instagram and Facebook.

‘We have been making videos and pictures for seven years now,’ Ross tells Metro.co.uk.

‘All of this started when I came home for Easter one year and my grandma made a viral basketball video.

‘Now we are best friends, we hang out almost everyday and travel the whole world together! We have been there for each other through all the good times and hard times.’

Ross explained that the costume ideas just come to him depending on what people are watching or talking about online.

While each post can garner anywhere between 300 to 800,000 likes, they take careful consideration and a lot of effort.

‘Some of the costumes take a long time,’ added Ross. ‘Like this Halloween, we had a costume that took probably 75-100 different parts and cost anywhere from $1,500-$2,000 just to create.

‘Some outfits for pics and vids are free and just come from our amazing fans.’

When asked whether the other grandkids are envious, Ross says they’re all happy for pair.

Ross says: ‘I don’t think the other family members are jealous, I think they are just happy for us and the amazing journeys we have had. We even take some of them with us when we can.’
