As if everything George Takei did wasn’t already amazing, his reading of the bestselling novel shows just how brilliant his sense of humor is!

While I wouldn’t recommend a rowdy game of tackle football to all the seniors out there, this hilarious commercial likely got more people up and at ‘em!

Tina Turner busts a move like women a quarter of her age. She still knows how to shimmy and shake and belt out a song like the timeless superstar she is!

5. Is Tony Bennett A Little Monster?

Bennett is 86 but he hasn’t slowed down for a second. He’s been getting inspiration from a new generation of musicians who, in return, get mentored by one of the greatest crooners to have ever lived.

11. Show Your Parents This (The Next Time They Make Fun Of Gaming)

Because that’s Max Von Sydow voicing a character in the video game Skyrim. Not many people can claim both that and Ingmar Bergman on their resumes!
