A hilarious video showing two teen boys trying their best to use an old school rotary phone dial has got the internet in stitches. 

After taking on the challenge, the teens receive their instructions to dial a phone number on the old phone within a four-minute time frame.

The confident teens take their first try but soon realise using this ancient device is not as easy as it looks. 

After several attempts, the boys only manage to dial zero correctly. Another few seconds go by and the two ask each other: "Do we have to pick up the phone and then do it?" 

Check out the hilarious video below:
