Groovin' Grandpa shows off his moves, wins hearts
Atlanta, GA (CNN) - We dare you to try not to smile watching the groovin' grandpa dance his way into hearts.
Here's a man who may need two canes to get around - but not to get down.
Dancing to a medley of 50s tunes starting with “Rock Around the Clock,” he's been rocketing around the web, inspiring comments like "This dude is legend,” "I’ll have what he's having,” and "Why does everyone dance better than me?"
Next thing you know he's got a partner, and soon he's got two partners instead of two canes.
We had no luck tracking down this new viral star but we think he may be from South America.
The video was posted on Facebook from Peru, titled in Spanish "Forever Young." its being forever remixed with songs like "Am I Sexy" Fans can't resist replacing the songs from the 50s with songs like "Badinga” and "Party Up, Up in Here."
Would he mind the broken hip jokes? "That music he's dancing to is not hip hop, it's hip pop. I just hope he didn't break a hip cause he was workin' it."
But as Shakira put it “Hips Don’t Lie” and his hips are more than holding their own. Some saw a resemblance to dancing Danny DeVito in "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia."
There's another video of our elderly gentleman dancing with canes nowhere in sight...
The guy's even getting credit for inventing his own move. A commenter wondered "Why did he pull his hair? Is that a dance move?" It is now" someone replied. And if the hair pull doesn't start a trend, maybe the plastic bag attached to his belt will, combined with the cane toss will.
