I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again: I love old people. Old people and babies are my weaknesses. So imagine my excitement when I stumbled upon Tastefully Offensive‘s video called “Senior Citizens Dancing to ‘Turn Down For What.’” Just as you’d imagine, the video is a compilation of dozens of old people getting down with their bad selves, all to the sweet musical dewdrops of Lil Jon’s “Turn Down For What.” If this doesn’t get you through your Tuesday, I don’t know what will.
