- Couple filmed dancing in the lobby of the Magic City Casino in Miami
- Footage posted to Facebook has nearly four million views
An elderly couple in Miami have proven conclusively that age is just a number when they showed off their dance skills at a local casino.
The couple, who have not been named, were in the lobby of the Magic City Casino on Friday night when they put on a spicy dance show for delighted crowds, and the footage of their performance has proved to be a hit on social media.
In the footage, the couple are seen swaying back and forth, with eyes locked on one another and their show soon escalated. As the elderly woman twerked to a reggaeton song, her partner went low to the ground, to the delight of the crowd who gathered to watch, cheering and recording the event on their phones.
The video of the dancing couple was posted to Facebook by comedy act Los Pichy Boys, who captioned it in Spanish: ‘Me as an old man with my girl’. By Sunday night, the Facebook video has received nearly four million views, had been shared more than 80,000 times and had generated plenty of positive online reaction, including one Facebook comment describing the dancing pair as ‘Hialeah’s finest’- referring to the Miami-Dade city. Another user expressed their admiration for their performance:
“Omg honey, I hope this is us at their age. Sooo cute and totally fun. A old couple still enjoying life.”
The viral sensation is certainly good publicity for Magic City, which hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons last year when an off-duty police officer was stabbed on the premises. The Magic City, which until 2009 was known as the Flagler Dog Track and Poker, joined in with the show of appreciation for the dancing couple:
“TGIF,amirite?! #abuelasgotgame #miami #livemusic.”
