Kiwi man Jarryd Stoneman takes his aging grandmother for a spin in this emotional video.

Jarryd Stoneman of Paraparaumu has stolen the Internet's heart after posting a touching video of a dance with his elderly grandmother.
He later posted the clip to Facebook with the caption "asked Nanny for a dance she can't remember much but she still knows how to move".
