Commercials! Is there anyone who loves seeing them popping up while watching their favorite TV show? I guess not. But if they are as awesome as the one below featuring a grandma dancing the Charleston, then the answer is a resounding yes.
The 82-year-old lady is barely walking, but she then takes the product advertised and quickly turns vital, just as she was back in the day. She’s wearing a long black dress which goes to short with just a single move, and that makes this grandma really cool.
In the next moment, we see her moving as though she isn’t 82 years old but a teenager.
She does the Charleston dance, and she’s doing it with style. This particular dance was very popular during the 1920s but was later banned because of its apparent sexual nature and likelihood of exposing women’s legs. It is characterized with toes-in, heels-out twisting steps and was named after the harbor city of Charleston, South Carolina.
In fact, the Charleston first appeared in 1923, in a Broadway piece called Runnin’ Wild.
The grandma from the video below, which has been seen over 3 million times, is wearing an outfit typical of the 1920s. And yes, we can all agree she’s a great dancer. Check the video out below.
