- The Good News Movement posted a video of a World War II veteran dancing to the tune of Can’t Stop the Feeling! by Justin Timberlake.
- The website says they posted the video of Chuck Franzke to motivate everyone who is on quarantine.
- The video caught Justin Timberlake’s attention and left a comment, writing:“This just made my day.”
World War II veteran Chuck Franzke, 97 years old, dancing to Can’t Stop the Feeling! by Justin Timberlake was videotaped and, later on, shared on social media on Monday. Chuck was a former navy pilot, but from what it looks like in the video, he has got that good soul in his feet too!
Good News Movement posted the video of Chuck dancing while social distancing in Wisconsin on Instagram. They captioned it with: “MONDAY MOTIVATION: Even under quarantine, 97-year-old Wisconsin WWII Navy pilot Chuck ‘Dancing Chuck’ Franzk ‘can’t stop the feeling’.”
The veteran emerges from the doorway of his home about the time Justin Timberlake sings the part, “I feel that hot blood in my body when it drops (ooh) / I can’t take my eyes up off it, movin’ so phenomenally.”
Chuck made his way onto his front porch, swaying left and right with his groove on. He then rolls his arms up in the air while tapping his feet back and forth. He shows off his impressive footwork as he shuffles his arms on his sides dancing to the music he is playing.
The video posted on social media has entertained everyone that tumbled upon it, including Justin Timberlake. The singer commented on the original post, “This just made my day,” adding praise hands, fire, and 100 emoji.
The veteran has danced to music before, all in efforts to cheer up others. Chuck has made headlines back in 2017 in another video that attracted attention to the internet, only this time dancing to Christmas music.
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel interviewed Chuck about his dancing earlier. “I don’t know, I just get up there and some music just starts playing and I just start bouncing around. When the music stops, I go back and sit down,” he said before breaking out in choreography to “Jingle Bells.”
Beverly Franzke said that her husband has loved dancing and she knows how good of a dancer he is. “He always was a pretty good dancer,” she says.
“We were big band fans,” Chuck said. “I used to jitterbug when I was young. I can’t jitterbug today. My balance isn’t good. But I just like music and I like her too.”
Chuck Franzke does more than dancing to cheer people up. He is associated with Stars and Stripes Honor Flight, helping other veterans travel to Washington, D.C., to visit war memorials.
