Viral video: Senior citizens stage flash mob

Flash mobs aren't just for teenagers anymore.

A group of senior citizens proved it recently after staging a song and dance inside the Christmas decorations department of the Target store in Lawrence, Kan.

As the song "Last Christmas" blared over the loudspeakers, an elderly woman began lip-syncing the lyrics. Her friends – including a woman with a walker and an oxygen tank – joined in with some backup dancing.

An elderly man soon joins in, and he appears to be the one to whom the lead singer "gave her heart," according to the song’s lyrics. More and more folks join in the song and dance, and the camera briefly pans to onlookers, who can't stop smiling.

And further proof that these elderly folks are young at heart? They chose the "Glee" cast version of the song for their performance.
