A music store in Wisconsin claims that an elderly woman came into the shop to try a drum set and became an Internet viral video star. Who is she? Where did she learn to play? Will she join my band? All of these questions remain unanswered so far. All we have are two videos of her totally rocking out.
Maybe she isn’t anyone’s grandmother, but way to smash stereotypes about the elderly being dull. (The continuing profitability of the Rolling Stones shows that it is at least possible for senior citizens to rock.)
“We have no idea where this lady came from, what her name is, or where she went, but she rocked our faces off!” the shop noted in a caption on the video.
Why didn’t they get her name before posting the video online? It could be that someone is dressing up as an older person before rocking out in order to promote the store’s new YouTube channel, but that does seem rather roundabout.
On the other hand, we’re watching their videos, so maybe it isn’t roundabout at all.
