BOOGIEVILLE — We all have that one song that makes it nearly impossible for us to stand still. You throw on Stevie Wonder’s “Superstition” and I’m at the very least tapping a toe, but more likely wholeheartedly working it out on the dance floor.

For one grandpa, his jam seems to be a medley of '50s hits that make him throw caution to the wind so that he can get his groove on.

We enter the video when grandpa is already on the dance floor supported by two canes. But as he begins to boogie down, he tosses the canes away to unencumber his sweet moves. It’s not unlike a good tent revival scene where music is the power that cures what ails this dancing grandpa.

He then begins to relive his youth in an impassioned dance that includes hair pulling, head banging and a bounce to the beat that just won’t stop.

His dance is already entertainingly sweet and charming, but then he takes it to the next level and entices not one, but two women to be his partners in his dance party. And grandpa is fully in charge of his partners, twisting them around on the dance floor.

The only explanation of the video comes in the form of the apt titles both on the Facebook and YouTube versions of the video: Eternamente Joven, Forever Young.
