The legendary Dick Van Dyke already has a long resume of accomplishments. He is a World War II United States Army Air Corps veteran, a much beloved actor and comedian, and a very talented singer. Now, he can add one more thing to his resume, though: Dick Van Dyke has danced with a flash mob!

The beloved actor turned 90 on Sunday, but Dick Van Dyke proved how ageless he truly is when his many fans kicked off the special day with a flash mob in his honor. The crowd of 30 or so men, women, and children performed a medley of Dick’s song and dance routines from his 1964 Disney classic, Mary Poppins.

At first, Dick Van Dyke just watched the show from a balcony, singing and clapping along, clearly delighted by the show. The medley included fan favorite songs “Chim Chim Cheree” and “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.” When the flash mob dancers end their routine, Dick exclaimed, “Woo! That’s unbelievable!”

Ever playful, even in his ripe age, Dick Van Dyke didn’t stay on the balcony for long, however. After the crowd finished their performance, he went down to join them for some more fun!

Joining the group for “Let’s Go Fly A Kite,” Dick Van Dyke showed that he’s still got the talent as he kept up with the younger singers and dancers, leading them in his own Mary Poppins sing-along. During the song, the flash mob members held up kites that spelled out “Happy Birthday Dick!”

It’s been half a century since Dick appeared on the big screen as Bert in Mary Poppins, alongside Julie Andrews who played the title character, but clearly the actor has just as much charm and vigor as he ever did!

Undoubtedly, this will be a birthday celebration that Dick Van Dyke will remember for (hopefully) years to come!
