Grandpa Liu is Serving Everything I Need!

The internet is awesome because sometimes it brings things into your life that makes you smile from deep down. The story of 72-year old Liu Xianping from Shanghai and his support for his granddaughter is one. Liu’s granddaughter runs a clothing store with some of her college buddies, and one day as they unpacked, he picked up pieces and started trying them on. And then the girls took pictures of him.

This is the magic that happened:

Fierce Grandpa Liu Xianping

YOU. BETTER. WERK. GRAMPS! Give me everything I need and didn’t know I wanted. YESSSSS!!!

How can you NOT look at these pics of Grandpa Liu and smile? He is serving fierce realness and y’all will deal! The aviators are dope and y’all know he got them poses down to a science. Plus, he has the body some 35-year olds want. This is awesome.

Also, don’t be jealous of his calf definition. Do leg raises and get great. I’m here for him.

This is so awesome not just because of how photogenic he is but the fact that he isn’t afraid to put on women’s clothes and have fun with it. All in the name of supporting his granddaughter. When asked about why he did it, Liu said:

“Why unacceptable (for someone like me) to wear women’s clothes? Modelling for the store is helping my granddaughter and I have nothing to lose. We were very happy on the day of the shooting. I’m very old and all that I care about is to be happy.” 

I love it! LOVE IT! He just showed love and gave wisdom all in those sentences. Gramps Liu is old and ain’t nobody gon check him. But also, he’s helping his daughter and it makes him happy. And at his age, being happy is a priority. Speak on it, Liu. He is winning at life right now because he is happy. If you hate on this, you’re heartless. Or Donald Trump. Same difference.

People appreciate this because apparently, since Liu started modeling these clothes, the store’s sales have went up 5 times. GO FIERCE GRAMPS! Live your golden years doing what you damb well please.

Old folks are a treasure.

So what is your favorite piece on Liu? Mine might be that orange cape thing.

    Luvvie, you and your commenters are a MESS! Hilarious! Go Grandpa Liu!

    Now my father’s father had legs TO DIE FOR. He would have given Grandpa Liu a run for his money…except that it would have probably taken a gun to my head to get him to do this.

    They had this on Good Morning America today. Apparently grandpa has been getting offers from fashion houses since this went viral and he turned them down saying he only did it to be close to his grand daughter.
