We don’t know much about this video of an old man throwing his caution and his crutches to the wind, but we are sure you will enjoy it all the same.

In a clip posted by Peruvian Facebook user Edgard Eleuterio Daza, an elderly man is seen politely rocking back and forth to Bill Haley’s “Rock Around the Clock,” before the raw power of Haley’s grooves inspires him to abandon all thought of self-preservation, throwing aside his pair of forearm crutches with the flair of John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever.

The man’s boldness caught the attention of the ladies on the dance floor, and soon he was swimming in female attention.

Just more proof that, at any age, it pays to take risks.
