This Video of an 88-Year-Old Grandpa Doing a Back Flip Off a Diving Board Will Make You Feel Forever Young

Terrifyingly awesome

If you watched the 41st President George H.W. Bush go skydiving on his 90th birthday, then you should watch this 88-year-old grandfather do a backflip off a diving board.

“Everyone thought he would simply jump off,” WUSA producer Joanie Vasiliadis wrote about this feat by her Uncle Nick, who also regularly plays piano and goes dancing. Her sister Charlee Vasiliadis uploaded the video to Instagram.

We are with this man in spirit, especially during these summer heat waves.
