OLATHE, Kan. — Ever since Justin Timberlake released his newest single, “Can’t Stop the Feeling,” people all over have been grooving to the catchy new tune, including the residents at Santa Marta Retirement Community in Olathe, Kan.
To bring attention to the facilities, the retirement community hired a marketing firm to produce the video parody of Timberlake’s hit . They posted the music video to YouTube on Thursday. In just a few hours, the video had nearly 1,000 views.
The video’s description reads, “Some of our residents at Santa Marta in Kansas City just “can’t stop the feeling” when they hear Justin Timberlake’s song, so we found some cameras and let them dance dance dance!”
The video features the residents and staff at Santa Marta dancing while eating, getting their hair done and even doing water aerobics.
The catchy beat and joy of the residents is sure to have you grooving along while you watch.
Dance on residents of Santa Marta! Your joy is contagious!
On Friday, FOX 4 went to visit some of the residents of Santa Marta who participated in the video.
Harry McBride, a U.S. veteran, told us he was upstairs walking the circuit when he heard commotion.
“I just came in and got put in the movie. I don’t let those things pass by,” he said.
When asked about Timberlake, McBride said he doesn’t know who Timberlake is.
“I just get moving. I’m not a good dancer. I just shuffle around but I have a good time,” McBride said.
Another resident said she was thrilled to be asked to participate.
“I thought, This is a happy day.’ I really like to dance. I haven’t danced a lot in the last few years, but I used to dance a lot when I was young,” said Marjorie Riley.
“I was asked just to come and dance. Dance and sing to a brush,” said Judi Stradinger, another resident and participant. “I thought that will be an odd thing, but I like to dance so that’s how I got in it.”
Residents seemed to agree that the music had a nice beat to it.
“I was kind of surprised. I wasn’t sure what was going to happen. It was fun,” said Carol Zaborac.
“The stamina side of it was challenging. It wasn’t all day, but my knees knew it,” said Ed Mlodzik.
