WAUKESHA, Wis. — A World War II veteran from Wisconsin just can’t keep away from his dancing socks.

Chuck Franzke, a 97-year-old Navy pilot from Waukesha, has been filmed dancing to Frank Sinatra and to Christmas music. His latest effort at cutting the rug is his version of Justin Timberlake’s hit “Can’t Stop the Feeling” in his stocking feet, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported.

It’s Frankze’s way of staying limber as coronavirus stay-at-home orders sweep through the country.

In a video posted on Instagram and Twitter, Franzke opens his front door and steps sprightly onto his porch while Timberlake croons “I feel that hot blood in my body when it drops (ooh) / I can’t take my eyes up off it, movin’ so phenomenally.”

Franzke loved to jitterbug as a youth, and it shows, the Journal-Sentinel reported.

As the clip continues, Franzke sways left and right, then taps his feet and rolls his arms in the air. He continues to show some nimble moves as he steps to the music.

In 2018, Franzke danced to Sinatra’s 1950 version of “Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!” In 2017, Franzke danced to “Jingle Bells.”

Even Timberlake weighed in, writing on Instagram that the video “just made my day,” the Journal Sentinel reported.

“I don’t know, I just get up there and some music just starts playing and I just start bouncing around. When the music stops, I go back and sit down,” Franzke told the newspaper in 2017 before his “Jingle Bells” dance.

In 2018, Franzke’s wife, Beverly, told WDJT that her husband "always was a pretty good dancer.”

She’s got a point.
