The Story of Viral Video Dancing Grandma Nana — The Tragedy That Followed

Dancing Grandma, a Facebook share that has been spreading throughout the USA shows an elderly woman dancing to the sounds of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons*, but what it doesn’t show is what happened when the cameras stopped rolling. It was a horrible tragedy.

*EDITOR’S NOTE:  The singer is actually Dion DiMucci, formerly of Dion and the Belmonts — not Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons.  Thanks to Greg K for that inside info.

89-year-old Concetta Carpestrollo, had just finished her last step and had just stated that she “could dance all fucking day” when her Depends diaper fell around her ankles and tripped her. Mrs. Carpestrollo of Garfield, New Jersey USA, landed on her own Depends diaper and was smeared with her own feces.

“Connie loves to dance,” said a family friend.

“The trouble is that she likes to eat gassy foods that don’t agree with her. The day before she starred in this viral video, she ate 3 canolis, and a huge plate of manicotti with gravy and sausage. When she dances she forgets that her Depends, which she only uses for pee” sometimes get a little poop too and she’s lucky she didn’t break her hip.”

Doctors said that a compound fracture into which feces migh have spread would have been possibly fatal in someone so old, and in spite of the fact that she can dance and wiggle, it’s always the active ones who end up getting really hurt bad.

Connie takes it all in stride.

“Look, everybody shits their pants a least once in their life and look at me. I mean…I am almost 90 frigging years old. So I danced and I shit my diaper and fell down — big deal. At least I am enjoying my life. After I fell I went back inside and cleaned up. Then I went shopping and had a great day. So sue me for chrissakes.  So yeah, I could dance all fucking day and if I fall in my own shit, who the fuck are you to question what I eat or do or say?”

  1. The video was good for a chuckle- the “follow up” story was tragically disgusting. But I think what bothered me the most was the fact that “Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons” did NOT record “Runaround Sue.” The singer is Dion DiMucci, formerly of Dion and the Belmonts.

    Depends know better than to fall down if someone is dancing to Frankie Valli…

  2. My bad — I should have spotted that glaring error! thank you — and thank you for finding the story to be “tragically disgusting.” I like that — it has a nice ring to it.
