Guess who's back? Back again. Grandma's back.

One year after a trio of hip-hopping Japanese grandmothers broke the Internet by dancing to Bruno Mars' hit 24K Magic, another video has emerged.

This time, one of the golden girls, 60-year-old dancer Tachiflower, appears in a new video to promote rice consumption among the young.

The choreography is styled after the "Koi Dance", an emerging dance craze from popular J-drama, "We married as a job", which swept across Japan last December. According to Rocketnews, the dance was so popular that it toppled the viral "Pen-pineapple-pen" sensation.  

Tachiflower fronts the camera with two young dancers keeping pace with her as she busts out the kawaii-hitting moves in a kimono.

The video, titled No Rice No Life, is promoted by Japan's National Federation of Agricultural Cooperative Associations to get the younger generation interested in keeping traditional dining cuisines alive.
