HOLYOKE, Mass. (NewsNation Now) — A woman living at a Massachusetts rehabilitation center received a unique gift for her 86th birthday.

Ann O’Toole decided to surprise her mother with a flash mob performance to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.”

Performers from a local dance studio busted a move for Mary O’Connor outside the Mont Marie Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center in Holyoke on Sunday.

O’Toole said she’s happy everything went according to plan for her mother’s big surprise.

“I was thrilled. I decided that, at least I would try to get it to happen,” she told NewsNation affiliate WWLP. “I contacted the dance academy first and then I contacted Mont Marie and everyone was good with it. It happened and I can’t believe it.”
