Some Very Hip Seniors Dance To "Billie Jean"
They're probably old enough to be Billie Jean's grandparents, but that won't stop these senior citizens - collectively known as "The Awesome Threesome" - from getting funky with the Michael Jackson hit. As part of an event at the Leisure World Senior Community in Seal Beach, California, Kurt Bourhenne, Bert Carroll and Frank Tripoli - all in their 70's - got up on stage and performed a choreographed dance routine with all the moves they could muster.
The routine was choreographed by Carroll's daughter, who also posted the clip to YouTube. They've since become famous, with over 9 million views to date. Although they all had backgrounds in dance from their younger days, they admit that dancing to the King of Pop at their age wasn't easy. As Carroll explains, "I think we could spin, but we'd end up with vertigo."
