These old people are surprisingly good at the Nae Nae

Watch them whip.

The Nae Nae is far from a new dance, but it continues to see new life online—this time in the form of an instructional video for senior citizens.

A few weeks back, a pregnant mother and her daughter totally slayed the popular hip-hop dance in an impressive home video. And now, Vine star Vanilla Trill is bringing the joy to a new generation by giving an exclusive dance lesson to a group of older folks.

If you’re expecting sweet, old people saying cute little things about pop culture, well, this isn’t that kind of video. “To do this one, I should probably have a tassel on my dick,” comments a man who aptly goes by Honest John.

While it’s unlikely that any of these men and women will star in a rap video anytime soon, their commitment and enthusiasm is impressive. 

Maybe they just need a better teacher to take it to the next level. Is Riley Curry available?
