During these gloomy times of self-isolation and quarantine, an 18-year-old is bringing some much-needed cheer to millions with an adorable TikTok video starring his 76-year-old grandmother.
Lewis Leigh, a resident of the U.K., said he taught his grandma, Phyllis Leigh, or “Nan,” a viral dance from the video sharing app while maintaining social distancing.
“Everyone is just saying it’s a wholesome video,” Lewis said. “It’s upsetting because my grandmother lives on her own so the highlight of her week is when my family and I visit.”
Lewis has been maintaining space from his Nan amid the novel coronavirus crisis and was dropping off groceries to her before sharing the dance.

“I did not expect her to pick it up so quick,” Lewis said. “I thought the exercise would be good for her.” So far the video has got over 4 million views on TikTok.
