What happens when you take a group of 70 year old music festival virgins and shove them smack bang in the middle of one of the world’s biggest and wildest music festivals?
Funny or Die found out when they took 4 unassuming grandparents to Bonnaroo and documented their adventures.
“Do you guys expect you’re going to see some stuff you’ve never seen before?” asks the cameramen.
To which 79 year old Denny quips, “Oh, I’ve already seen some stuff…”.
And holy hell they did.
Silent disco’s, mosh pits, Mary Jane, stage rushes, and VIP band hangs rule the adventure, and these legendary oldies don’t hold back.
At one stage, ridiculously cute couple Anne and Neil gets Mumford & Sons on the blower with their granddaughter in what proves that they are the coolest grandparents out.
But our favorite parts are when Denny gets busted napping backstage, and 72-year-old Isolde goes full level Granny when she cops a cheeky whiff of some herb.
“What’s that? Ohhh yeah, I got a whiff. Well, I guess it’s the Mary Janes,” says an exasperated Isolde.
“I’m going to be high as a kite when I walk out of here tonight!”
