This past weekend, Dick Van Dyke celebrated his 90th birthday. While he was at The Grove in Los Angeles, he was treated to a birthday performance by the “Mary Mobsters,” who were all dressed as chimney sweeps, a la Bert from Mary Poppins. The entire performance is set to a medley of Mary Poppins favorites, including “Step in Time,” “Chim Chim Cher-ee,” and, of course, “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.”
It’s simply heartwarming to watch Van Dyke smiling, clapping, and singing along with the flashmob. I couldn’t stop grinning throughout the video. Hell, now I’m listening to the Mary Poppins soundtrack.
Perhaps the best part is how Van Dyke joined the flashmob after their performance to sing “Let’s Go Fly a Kite” with them. The dude’s still got it, and we’re so happy.
