Introducing the coolest, brightest, and fiercest male model – 王德順 (Wang Deshun)
This man literally crushed any excuse that age matters, that we are too old to achieve our goals and dreams, that retirement is the only way to go when we are 75 years old and above. The story of his life and his performance at the runway show has inspired people around the whole to achieve their own dreams and goals.

Watch below for a short inpirational clip on how to be the fiercest version of yourself

English Transcript | 中文副本 | 《《船》》

My name is Wang Deshun
Born and raised in Shenyang, China
Many people started noticing me after a catwalk show
Some people call me “The Hottest Grandpa”
Some also said that I’m an instant Internet sensation
But you know what, to prepare for this day
I’ve been preparing for 60 years
At 24, I was a theatrical actor
At 44, I started learning English
At 49, I created my own pantomime troupe
and went to Beijing, became a “Beijing Drifter”
I had nothing to my name, starting everything from scratch

At 50, stepped into my first gym
started working out
At 57, I returned to the stage
and created the world’s only form of performance art
called “Living Sculpture Performance”

At 70, I really got into working out
At 79, I got on my first catwalk
I’m 80 this year, and I still got some left in me
I still have dreams to achieve

Believe me, human potential can be explored
When you think it’s too late
be careful you don’t let that
become your excuse for giving up
No one can keep you from success
except yourself
When it’s time to shine,
be the brightest

I am Wang Deshun
I’m the fiercest North-Easterner

我是王德顺
地地道道的沈阳人
一场T台走秀 让很多人认识了我
有人叫我最帅大爷
也有人说 我一夜爆红

可是你知道吗?
为了这一天
我足足准备了六十年
二十四岁我当话剧演员
四十四岁开始学英语
四十九岁创造了造型哑剧
到北京 成了一名老北漂
没房没车 一切从头开始

五十岁 我进了健身房 开始健身
五十七岁 我再次走上了舞台
创造了世界唯一的艺术形式
它叫活雕塑

七十岁 我开始有意识的练腹肌
七十九岁 我走上了T台
我今年八十岁了
还有梦 还有追求

相信我
人的潜能是可以挖掘的
当你说太晚了的时候
你一定要谨慎
它可能是你退却的借口
没有谁能阻止你成功
除了你自己
该炫自己的时候
千万不要对自己手软

我是王德顺
我是最炫东北人

And also, a beautiful and powerful poem he delivered at the end of his talk
追求生命的亡命徒 – 王德順 (2015/08/23)

《《船》》 | English Transcript | 中文副本

我有过多次这样的奇遇
从天堂到地狱
只在 瞬息之间
每一朵温柔可爱的浪花
都成了突然崛起 随即倾倒的高山

每一滴海水都变脸 变色
刚刚还是那样美丽蔚蓝
骤然间旋涡纠缠着旋涡
把我被抛向了高空 又投进了深渊

当时 我甚至想到过轻生
眼前一片苦海无边
放弃希望 那就像放弃舵柄了
面对暴力 只能沉默和哀叹

今天 我才有资格嘲笑昨天的自己
为昨天落叶似的惶恐 而感到羞惭
唉 虚度了多少年华
船身多次被礁石撞穿

千万次在大洋里撒网
才捕获到一点点生活的经验
才恍然大悟
啊…… 道理原来如此的浅显

你要航行吗?
必然会有千妖百怪出来阻挡
暴虐的欺凌是他们的游戏
制造灭亡是它们惟一的才干

命中注定 我要常常和它们相逢
因为我的名字叫做船呐
也许我的样子比它们更可怕
但我以命相拼一往无前

只要我还有一根完整的龙骨
我绝不驶进那避风的港湾
把生命放在征途上
让勇敢来决定道路的宽窄长短

我完完全全的自由了
船头成为埋葬它们的铁铲
我在波浪中有节奏地跳跃
就像荡着一个巨大的秋千

即使它们终于把我撕碎
变成一些残破的木片
我不会沉沦 决不
我会在浪尖上飞旋

后来者还会在残片上认出我来
未来的诗人 会喟然长叹
这里有一个幸福的灵魂
它曾经是前进着的航船

PS: He resembles an anime character.
His gusto, zest and awesomeness

Maybe he is Captain Yamamoto in disguise 😛
