PICTURES! Here are photos of 73-year old Shigeo Tokuda who is proving that at John McCain’s age, you can do a lot. A whole lot. Tokuda is a star of 200 films from Rudy Productions in Japan.
Japan has the world’s highest population over 65. And to meet their demand (apparently there is a demand for this), there is a new genre in these “films” – seniors.
Shigeo Tokuda is now the, um, poster child of the industry, profiled today in CNN. In fact CNN tried to edit a few dozen DVDs to show some appropriate material on their site – they weren’t very successful.
Ironically, Tokuda the “film star” is much different that the man himself. He’s been marreid to the same wife for 44 years and have a child.
And then, this quote: “I don’t know how long I can keep living, but I want to enjoy the rest of it.”
So, if retirement is beating up men and women, and Saturday night bingo ain’t cutting it, you now have another option.
