Cowboy Forrie J. Smith, who plays Lloyd on the Paramount series Yellowstone, uploaded an Instagram video with some hilarious “technical difficulties.”
Depending on who you are, being off the grid is either a blessing or a curse. If you are a cowboy, who barely knows how to use social media in the first place, it probably doesn’t really matter all that much.
The Yellowstone star plays the loyal ranch hand and a long-term cowboy on the Dutton ranch, Lloyd. He proudly shows off the large “Y” brand on his chest and is the wise voice of reason for the young men in the bunkhouse.
Forrie J. Smith doesn’t just play a cowboy on Yellowstone, though. The creator of the series, Taylor Sheridan, wanted the show to be as authentic as possible, thus casting Smith, a real cowboy, to play the part. The Yellowstone cowboy has been a stuntman for a number of different Hollywood movies, including Rambo III, Desperado, and Hell or High Water.
However, even with all his worldly knowledge, Forrie J. Smith cannot figure out how to upload a simple Instagram video. Well, at least one with sound.
Early this morning, the Yellowstone star posted a video of himself laughing and going on a rant. However, worried Instagram users can hear no words. Smith is well aware of this technical flaw, yet he uploads the hilarious fail anyway, blaming the troubles on the “Wild West”.
“Third or Fourth time a try or go Bust!! Technical difficulties in the Wild Wild West!! Ha!🌵🌵.”
Fans Laugh Along With the Silent ‘Yellowstone’ Star
Fans commented to Smith, informing him about what he already is aware of.
One user posts, “Well, you’re laughing, so it can’t be too bad. Wish there was sound, looks like a pretty entertaining story. 😁”
While another fan states that his innocence is what makes him so loveable.
“This is what makes this guy a national treasure.”
Another one of Forrie J. Smith’s followers seems to have cracked the code as to what the Yellowstone cowboy is saying in the muted video.
“I think Forrie is saying Thanks for the Birthday wishes…I saw it on either the second or third attempt 🤣😂.”
We can get behind that! Besides, any guess is better than ours. I thought my computer was glitching out for a bit before we realized what was happening.
