Age-disrupting organisation AARP, asked a group of younger people what age they consider to be old? They asked them to show them what “old” looks like and then introduced them to some real “old” people.

We love this social experiment AARP made last year, on how we think about age in today's society. Watch the interesting changes in people's beliefs about aging, in this charming video below.
