On Friday Gareth Wilson shared a video of an awesome old man dancing and then tossing his crutches on a breakdown of a hard house beat. Wilson’s accompanying blurb read: “If this doesn’t make you happy you are dead inside.”
It was really funny.
Turns out the original video was posted by a Peruvian Facebook user about 12 days ago, with the title “Eternamente Joven,” which translates to “Forever Young”. In the original video – which currently has over a million shares on Facebook – the old man is actually dancing to the classic 50s hit “Rock Around The Clock” at a party.
The star of the video has not yet been tracked down, according to Wavy.com.
Since a lot of remixes started emerging on Youtube over the weekend, I decided to have a go myself and mixed the old man’s moves with some rocking “Elephant Man” off my new album, Shunt.
