Here, a girl is dancing in front of the cam and is blissfully unaware that her grand-dad is copying her moves behind her back. The way grandpa moves can put even Michael Jackson to shame.
However, the girl catches him in action and yells ‘Grand-dad’ as she sees him copying her. However, he goes right back to imitating her, much to the amusement of the girl’s mother, who is filming the duo.
