Turkish series based on Ertugrul Gazi has taken the Pakistanis by storm and people from all ages are addicted, be it our parents, grand parents, cousins, or kids, everyone’s hooked onto it!
And to make sure our parents had a good time during quarantine, many of us introduced our parents to the series, but what we didn’t know was how obsessed they were going to get, hear it from the internet!
Never tell your parents to watch Ertugrul. BMT they forget they have responsibilities

Living for your grandma!
My grandma legit referred to the characters as her ‘Turkish family’ I thought she made friends with her neighbours or something https://t.co/XTTwFxhz3y

That’s the spirit!
My dad literally watched all of it in Turkish and then started watching it again in a version with Urdu instead https://t.co/op20ANepZU

I made this mistake, thankfully they’re up to date now but before they’d stay up all night watching it 🤦🏻♀️🤣 https://t.co/EOUz6qrTg7

Haha, all attempts to leave Ertugrul behind in vain:
Literally went away to a cottage in the middle of nowhere..Ertugrul didn’t leave us there either 🙄 https://t.co/4FCqHcl3lQ
