Robert De Niro Struggles To Understand Technology In His First Ever Vine Video

He has been in front of more cameras than he probably cares to count, but Robert De Niro is not quite ready it seems for iPhone films.

The iconic Hollywood star was left bewildered after one of the judge's from his Tribeca Film festival tried to show him what was cool with the kids these days.

Jerome Jarre - a popular internet identity - is judging the Six Second Film Competition at the New York festival and tried to get the 70-year-old involved by making the actor's first ever Vine.

But it seems the world of internet videos is a bit much for De Niro.

Looking bewildered the Oscar winner asks: ‘What happened to my iPhone?’

Jerome - who's Vine is followed by 5.4 million people - does not bother to explain, but asks the star 'Robert what are you doing with my Vine?'

Dubbing the video 'Robert De Niro's first 6 second film,' 147,000 people have liked the Vine in just three days.

This is the second year in a row the festival has featured the Six Second Film competition with winners competing in divisions genre, drama, animation, comedy, and the Audience Award.

De Niro started the Tribeca Film Festival along with Jane Rosenthal and Craig Hatkoff in 2002, reportedly to bring beauty back to the area following the 2001 September 11 attacks.
