Spanish TV network Antena 3 created the video, and they contacted an octogenarian woman to get into the busy streets of Madrid to dance with a man as a way to prove that she wasn’t that old.

At the beginning of the clip, the lady appeared wearing a black ensemble and walking with a cane. The announcer said that, since she was 81, she was used to hearing that she is too old.

However, the lady was ready to teach everyone that age is nothing but a mental state and that people should respect old people in every aspect of their lives.

As soon as the couple finished their number, the man asked the crowd if there was somebody else who wanted to dance. The only person who volunteered was the octogenarian lady. The dancer told her that she was too old, but she refused to leave, and they started dancing.
