A scene from Penguin Prison's music video for "Never Gets Old."

The video for Penguin Prison's "Never Gets Old" follows a visit to his grandpa's retirement community in Florida. Then, the two hit Miami in a Mustang.

This week's heartwarming music video comes from New York electro-pop fixture Penguin Prison (real name: Chris Glover), whose new album, Lost in New York, is out this month on Downtown Records. The clip is for LP's irresistibly bubbly lead single, "Never Gets Old," which stars Glover and his real 90-year-old grandpa, Ross Glover, as the two pal around a Florida retirement community before crashing a Miami pool party. 

Glover filmed the video in March around Miami's Winter Music Conference. Once he and his grandfather cycle through the standard retirement activities – karaoke, bocce, golf carting – they turn up. Two and a half minutes in, the elder Glover rolls up in a silver Mustang convertible and the two set off for South Beach. Soon, it's grandpa behind the decks in a DJ booth full of booty-shaking, bikini-clad babes. 

“He's a really cool guy," Glover said in a release. "He was in World War II and received three purple hearts and now he plays bocce everyday and rides around in a two-person bicycle with his wife Alice. The concept is that I live at the retirement community in the house next to my grandpa and we do all kinds of crazy activities everyday. Later on we bust out in a convertible and drive to Miami and crash a pool party." 

Glover said that while the two were driving around Miami in the convertible, they wound up in a freak downpour. "My grandpa got drenched," he says, "but he thought it was funny to tell everyone about it later.”
