Older guy dancing to 'I Wanna Dance With Somebody,' you are my hero

To the older gentlemen (and his ladyfriend) rocking the hell out with a full-on dance routine to “I Wanna Dance With Somebody”: thank you for being the Internet’s Most Awesome Human today. The next time things are going poorly, or I’m feeling sour about this cosmic speck of dust we call home, or another unbearably filthy slush puddle forms in front of my apartment, I’m going to think of the joy and freedom this delightful fellow exhibited, and it’s going to put a little pep in my step. Don’t you wanna dance, say you wanna dance, don’t you wanna, etc:

Admit it, PopWatchers: Your heart is a little fuller for having seen this, right?

    • Jank

    • laylagalise

      Yes! I looks like he fused Flashdance with MC Hammer s—. Thanks for sharing!

    • Trey

      Here’s another one of him dancing to Poker Face!!

  • FromChicago

    Hilarious. who’s the singer,she should audition.

  • mw27122

    That singer must be so annoyed that she’s being upstaged. I love the lighter part.

  • Lauren

    This is so funny. And the best part is- I can’t figure out an angle for it to be fake. It was posted by the band & appears to be a real performance. Thanks Margaret for finding this gem!

  • Mr. Holloway

    Talk about interpreting the lyrics!

  • Iris

    Totally awesome! This is so going up on my Facebook page. But I don’t get how the singer (who I think was lip-synching anyway) could possibly ignore him through this!

    • Ryan Waldrup

      Because they come to a ton of our shows (i’m in the band)…the band is use to it now. When we first met them…it was definitely hard. And no, no lip-synching going on here. She is that good.

  • Tab

    I love this! Thank you for posting. They really know the words!

  • Katja

    LOL…there’s another video of him dancing, this time to “Poker Face” and taken by a random person in the crowd. (It’s called “OLD MAN IS A DANCING FOOL.”) I *love* an uninhibited dancer!

  • econruth

    How does the band keep a straight face throughout all of this?

  • Allen

    Wow! There is a whole lot going on here! I may have to watch this like 500 times. haha!

  • Michael

    He must be a hard core fan of Whitney Houston. Too bad he really can’t dance.

  • hen
