Southern Grandparents Learn Hip Hop Dancing

You've seen your grandmother pull off the perfect bundt cake in no time at all – but have you ever seen her Dab? We tested our favorite Southerners against some modern hip hop moves, and the results are sure to make you laugh. Can you imagine Nana trying to Whip and Nae Nae? Or, PopPop learning how to Juju On That Beat? We brought in dance instructor Jade Maghoney to show our these Southerners a little bit of what's popular with the kids these days, and our favorite sweet, wise grandparents gave every trendy hip hop move their best effort. From the footwork to the arm movements, these Southern grandmas and grandpas popped, locked, and dropped their way into our hearts – bad needs and all. Plug in your headphones, because you'll want to turn up the music. Stay tuned to the end to see these Southern grandparents pull off a hip hop dance routine!
