Dick Van Dyke might be pushing 90, but that didn't stop the entertainment legend from making a cameo in this music video for folk band Dustbowl Revival. Ever the entertainer, Dick Van Dyke was launched into stardom with his role in the musical "Bye Bye Birdie" in 1960, a role that netted him a Tony Award for his performance. His Mary Poppins days might be long behind him, but he looks just as sprite as ever.
Dustbowl Revival is a band that harks back to the days of pre-war America blues and folk. Banded together in Venice, California, their blend of musical stylings exude a joyous vibe meant to get the crowd moving. The video below is of their song "Never Had To Go," and features the charismatic Van Dyke acting as goofy and charming as ever.
In the video, he plays across from his real life wife Arlene, and it's as adorable as it is endearing. He bids for her attention and affection through a variety of whacky gestures and dance moves while she plays hard to get. It is just so hard not to love this man! I can see why Arlene fell for him despite their 46-year age gap.
So, what did you think of the song? Could they have cast someone better for the video the legendary Dick Van Dyke? He's still got it. I'll consider myself lucky to see age 90, yet alone be dancing and grooving like he is. Share this video if you liked the song and performance as much as we did.
