A wise man named Lloyd Christmas once stated: "Senior citizens, although slow and dangerous behind the wheel, can still serve a purpose." Lloyd couldn't have been more right, especially in certain situations when seniors get their aged hands on current pop culture references. Perhaps the greatest example of such is the heart-wrenching documentary about the Young @ Heart Chorus
, a group of seniors who spend their retired time touring and singing modern music. A slightly more recent case came from the Fair Lawn, NJ senior center where Ben Aaron
and a [very] mature group reenacted "Blurred Lines", the world-renowned music video that was made for mature audiences. I can't wait to retire.
And just because it's the greatest, here's the Young @ Heart chorus performing Talking Heads' "Road to Nowhere" - gets me all misty every time I watch.
