Japanese Elderly Couple Tear Up DDR

Now here’s something you don’t see everyday. An elderly couple from Japan have been filmed showing their moves on dance game, Dance Dance Revolution.

Mr. and Mrs. Akiyama, aged 72 and 68 respectively, first made their debut on Japanese TV 2 years ago where they showcased their skills. They were recently showcased again still showing that despite their age, they still have the dance moves to keep fit. They have been at it for 12 years now and are avid lovers of the game.

They say they started playing the game to stay fit and healthy which sounds like a far better alternative to walking or jogging. Check out the video link below, they have got some serious skills.

On a side note, I LOVE the AKB48 song playing on the machine! I’m unable to embed this clip, it’s a YouTube limitation on this clip but link is below.
