Rihanna, Jay-Z Surprise Older Women Who Re-created Halftime Show In Viral TikTok
Residents of Arcadia Senior Living in Bowling Green, Kentucky, got a pleasant surprise from Grammy award-winning singer Rihanna after doing a recreation of her Super Bowl performance.
In the short but adorable clip, 11 women are dressed in their versions of the all-white costumes that Rihanna’s backup dancers wore at the big game. Then, as the song “Rude Boy” plays, the women fan out to the sides and reveal resident Dora Martin, 87, dressed in red just like Rihanna during her Super Bowl performance.
The residents’ video has garnered over 31 million views on the social platform.
“You Ladies Dance Was Amazing,” reads the note from Rihanna on the lovely bouquet of white roses sitting on the piano.
“When the roses showed up from Rihanna, we were all in shock,” Paige Oakes, director of community relations at Arcadia Senior Living Bowling Green, told HuffPost via email. “All week, we have been waiting to see if we would get a response from her.”
“We were so excited to know that Rihanna watched the video and saw our lovely ladies having fun and dancing to her music,” Oakes told HuffPost.
Rihanna wasn’t the only star to show their appreciation for the residents of Arcadia Senior Living’s sweet moves. Jay-Z also sent the ladies 100 “beautiful” red long-stem roses last week.
