Line Dancing for Seniors

Don't break my hip,
My Achy breaky hip!

That's the first thing that entered my mind when I saw this tape at the thrift store. Unfortunately, no hips were broken in the making of this video. I suppose 1992 was a good year. Regardless, I had to have this! I mean, what's better than watching a bunch of old people work off the prunes they had for lunch? There were also no line dancers in wheelchairs, which is quite a shame. How fucking prejudice is that?

This copy came with both parts 1 and 2. The second part isn't worth watching. It seems scripted, rehearsed, boring, and has much younger seniors. Part one is totally where I got my fifty cents worth. The instructor is 80 years old, seems to have problems speaking, and trips over his words. He was thoroughly entertaining!

So for your enjoyment, here's a generous clip. The introductary warning made me laugh my ass off.

I don't think I've mentioned it before, but I've begun hosting videos directly on my webspace. It greatly reduces the potential of them getting wiped off youtube. There's a huge stack of videos to tackle, so you're going to see more of them in the future!
