this is just the bestest, most wonderfulest, make-me-feel-warm-and-embrace-humanity video i have seen in a long time. i dare you to try to watch this without smiling. you will fail (and, therefore, succeed).
oh — before you watch — a bit of background, via mikey (who gets the ht for this anyhow):
Background: Lead singer Alf is 90 – it’s quite something when he sings “I hope I die before I get old.” And he’s not the oldest – there are 99 and 100-year-olds in the band! The Zimmers will feature in a BBC TV documentary being aired in May 2007. Documentary-maker Tim Samuels has been all over Britain recruiting isolated and lonely old people – those who can’t leave their flats or who are stuck in rubbish care homes.
