Two "trendy grannies" from Guangxi are proving that age ain't nothing but a number.

According to Shine, 81-year-old Yuqin Wei and 87-year-old Cuiqiong Qin are two sassy women who are taking the internet by storm after one of their grandsons posted a video online. 

The video shows his grandma riding a motorcycle while wearing sunglasses and a leather jacket.

Since then, the video has gained tens of millions of views and over 80 million fans clamoring for more.

The grandson helped them open a livestreaming account to give their fans what they want. With millions of fans, the grannies are now "wanghong" (internet celebrities) and earn thousands of renminbi each month from their videos.

The grannies delight their audiences with hilarious banter and by dressing up in trendy styles.

The fame doesn't go to their heads though, and while they are happy with their newfound success, they say that laughter is most important to them, and that it keeps them young. 

Here's a video compilation of some of their best moments (VPN off):
