He's still got it: Dick Van Dyke, 96, dances and sings in heartwarming viral music video

He's still got it: Dick Van Dyke, 96, dances and sings in heartwarming viral music video

 Superstar Dick Van Dyke, 96, showed off his charming signature moves in a brand-new music video for his wife's latest cover song.

What are the details?

Van Dyke's wife, 50-year-old Arlene Silver, released the music video for her cover of 1958's "Everybody Loves a Lover," popularized by the late Doris Day, on Monday in honor of Valentine's Day.

Silver fronts Arlene & the Vantastix, which also features backup singers Bryan Chadima, Eric Bradley, and Mike Mendyke.

The video saw Van Dyke doing what he does best: singing, dancing, acting, and winking along with Silver, which has been viewed more than 110,000 times since its Monday debut.Van Dyke and Silver — a producer and former Hollywood makeup artist — married in 2012. The two met at the 13th Screen Actors Guild Awards in 2007 — where he presented former co-star Julie Andrews with a lifetime achievement award — and became easy friends.

The two will celebrate their 10-year wedding anniversary later this month.

Van Dyke, an entertainment staple for decades, is most known for his roles in 1964's "Mary Poppins," 1968's "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang," and TV's "Dick Van Dyke Show," which ran from 1961 to 1966.

What else?

In 2013, Van Dyke told Parade that he loves to join his wife in her creative endeavors and has been performing with barbershop quartet the Vantastix since 2000.

“It’s kind of my retirement amusement," he said. "I don’t play golf. I have more fun singing and dancing."

Of his coupling with Silver, Van Dyke said, "It’s one of the smartest moves I ever made. She makes me happy. She's very mature for her age and I'm very immature for my age, so it's just about right!"
