This Lady Knows How To Shop For Music At Walmart

This lady shows us how it’s done. We should all be more like her. I wish she’d teach me how to dance, I’m awful.

    I hope that when I’m her age, I have just as much spunk in me!

  3. axiomatic says:

    Hehe funny. When I hit her age I plan to let the freak flag fly as high as possible. Well done getting your freak on lady!

    Keep it up with the feel-good articles! Nice break from all the doom and gloom these days :-) Think she would be ok with me borrowing her moves for Friday night?

  5. TinaBringMeTheAx says:

    Those are the moves I make when I need to go to the bathroom.

    That’s the old huckl-buckle she’s doing…. popular little shuffle back in my day too !

    That’s what I do when I listen to “Melodic Animals of the Rocky Mountain Reserve” cds too.

    she must be deaf.

    I would just like to join in the castigation of Consumerist. I mean, how dare they presume to post anything remotely funny or interesting on this blog? It’s not like it’s completely free and I don’t have to pay per click or even read the articles to begin with, let alone make snide comments about them. How rude!

    • nodaybuttoday says:

      I am kind of shocked that was done to my post. I didn’t really say anything negative, I was just more surprised consumerist would post something that could so easily be viewed as a way to make fun of this elderly woman. People are mean.

  13. Loias supports harsher punishments against corporations says:

    When half the comments get disemvoweled, you have to wonder if they had a valid point.

    Not being able to read them, I have no idea what they said.

    The video is fun and I endorse its existence here.

    • packcamera says:

      Yeah, I always skip over them, although that abbreviated /SMS/leet-speak gibberish is a perfect way to make sure that the under-eighteens read your comment.

    • Conformist138 says:

      They’re easy to read. They all say the same thing. Why is this here? This should be on Since when has Consumerist been YouTube? Etc, Etc. You’d think they’d get the point: “why is this here?” or any variation gets disemvoweled because, well, it’s annoying to see a line of total killjoys everytime something fun is posted or just because they don’t “get” why others would care.

      • hotdogsunrise says:

        Youtube! I couldn’t figure that one out. “ytb…what word has a y and a b?”

        Thanks for solving that puzzle.

  14. humphrmi says:

    Wow, a blog posts one nice story and the haters come out. Yay for disemvowelling…. you stay classy, Wal-Mart dancing lady!

      I’d really love to see more articles about Elizabeth Warren. She is my personal hero.

    • Duckula22 says:

      I’m with you. The Register (UK) has an”odds and sodds” section, some similar approach here would be welcome, I would never look at it though, but for the random stuff that has nothing to do with consumer issues and how to tackle them you feel the urge to post about, it would be handy.

    Slow down Grandma…you’re movin’ too fast for me!!

  18. Big Mama Pain says:

    I learned all my dance moves from my grandmother! This generation comes from a time where dancing was something more than jumping around a crowded dance floor and grinding up against each other. This lady is awesome!

  19. nodaybuttoday says:

    Has consumerist always been this much about censorship? Or had I not noticed before?

    • Hoss says:

      Yes. The exception being that you can start a war over gun issues and receipt checks with no backlash.

      • RandomHookup says:

        I’m waiting for the story about the lady who gets stopped for a receipt check while buying a gun and simultaneously breastfeeding her baby.

      • Rectilinear Propagation says:

        Probably because people don’t flag those comments or at least they don’t get flagged as much. As heated as some of the gun and receipt comments get or as ugly as some of the fat-bashing and victim-blaming comments get there’s still a bunch of people here who agree with them.

        The “Why is this here” comments however are nearly universally reviled. Also, unlike some of the other offending comments, they never make a good point elsewhere in the comment. Someone in a gun thread may actually say something worthwhile before/after saying something insanely stupid and insulting but a “Why is this here” comment is always just a “Why is this here” comment.

    • brinks says:

      I haven’t seen much disemvoweling since the “Sexy Banker” stories a while back. However, from what I could figure out, those people had it coming.

      I did make out that you said something about People of Walmart. Just what I was thinking. Glad I didn’t say it. ;)

    • Rectilinear Propagation says:

      They’ve always disemvoweled the “Why is this on Consumerist?” comments. This is nothing new or unusual.

    • mythago says:

      Read the Comments Code before you start whining about censorship.

  20. FrugalFreak says:

    I’m happy & sad at same time. possible one of two things happening:
    1. Lady is in her right state of mind and just having fun at the urging of family
    2. The lady may have dementia or other issue that she may not realize where she is, not that it is wrong, just wonders if she knows.

    I base my statements on I’ve never seen an older person doing what this lady is, most of the time when I’ve seen something out of the ordinary, it is usually due to old age and illness affecting the person.

    • Hoss says:

      My guess is is had too many gin and tonics the night before and had a taste in the morning to get the motor going before shopping.

    • brinks says:

      My first thought was that she had dementia or alzheimers and she didn’t know where she was.

      Hope I’m wrong, because it was adorable.

    • GuyGuidoEyesSteveDaveâ„¢ says:

      Well, considering she knows how to use the machine to select songs, I’m guessing she’s hip, and still knows how to have fun.

  21. AoE says:

    She reminds me of techno granny:

  22. HogwartsProfessor says:

    Look how she made everyone smile!

  23. somepoet says:

    She dances better than I do! Go ahead on lady!

  24. DowneMixedBoi says:

    OMG, I love it!

  25. myCatCracksMeUp says:

    Her dancing moves reminds me of my mom, but so far as I know my mom has never danced in Walmart.

    I enjoyed the video; it brought a smile to my face. Thanks!

  26. Rectilinear Propagation says:

    More awesome dancing from an older guy:

  27. sliverworm says:

    She’s got that pimp walk down..

  28. mmmwright says:

    She looks to me like she really knows what she’s doing – possibly an ex-hoofer. What a bunch of crankypants commenters you have today.

  29. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot says:

    I think its sweet. I hope Consumerist keeps up these light-hearted posts and bans those who constantly complain about “why is it here?” Because the editors can post whatever the heck they want to that’s why. Don’t like it? Don’t read it.

    Keep up the great work.
