Sometimes you get videos on the internet that aren’t of people falling over or aren’t of people fighting or something cliche like that/ Sometimes, you find a video that truly brings a smile to your face thanks to the nostalgia and just great happiness to see within the video itself.
This video we’re talking of is when Dick Van Dyke made a surprise appearance during the number “Step In Time”. The song was playing during a tribute to Mary Poppins and obviously, Dick Van Dyke was the main man in mary Poppins performing a lot of the best dance routines and songs that we all love and remember today.
As you can see, Dick Van Dyke can still move with his feet and manages to keep in time with even the young dancer, likely 60 years his younger. Dick Van Dyke, recently turned 90, can move and that’s something that brings absolute joy to all Mary Poppins fans, all Disney fans and all fans of watching legends come back to the stage.
As you can see in the video, Dick Van Dyke’s reception is huge with everybody cheering very loudly and loving that he’s back on the stage. This is a man who pretty much made the Mary Poppins and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang films.
Dick Van Dyke is a Recipient of five Emmys, a Tony and a Grammy, Van Dyke was inducted into the Television Hall of Fame in 1995. He received the Screen Actors Guild’s highest honour, the SAG Life Achievement Award, in 2013. Van Dyke has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 7021 Hollywood Boulevard and has also been recognised as a Disney Legend.
The man will go down as a legend of the film having brought us two of the most famous films in the history of cinema that all generations will be able to relate to. Whether he’ll appear in the rumoured upcoming Mary Poppins remake, who knows. Either way, we hope to see Dick Van Dyke joining in in more on-stage antics sometime soon!
