A 70-year-old taxi driver has proven that age is just a number when it comes to talent. A video is going viral on the internet of a man shooting a basketball from the street in New York. Posted to Instagram by content creator, Luc A Menard on September 8, 2022, the video has received over 19 million views to date.

The video begins with a 70-year-old man, George Papoutsis, asking people to pass the basketball to him while lying on the sidewalk, so he can hit a shot. Mr. Ménard is then seen walking down the street while talking on the phone. Mr. Papoutsis asked Mr. Ménard to pass the ball to him, he then gave the ball to the septuagenarian, juggling it impressively with his legs. The man grabbed the basketball, jumped up and scored a basket that seems impossible. As the ball lands in the basket, Mr. Papoutsis runs down the street to the cheers of Mr. Ménard.

The caption read, “70 year old taxi driver with @timberland hit CRAZY shot and ran through the streets.”
