Ever since Rihanna gave her spectacular Super Bowl halftime show, people worldwide have taken to their respective social media platforms to share their rendition of the sensational piece. 

The Super Bowl extravaganza was viewed by 118.7 million viewers making it the second most-viewed performance in Super Bowl history. Katy Perry’s 2015 halftime show stands in first place with 121 million views. 

The Super Bowl trend has become so famous that even celebrities are jumping on the bandwagon and sharing their recreated versions of Rihanna’s viral performance. 

But one TikTok video that caught the eyes of the world is of residents of Arcadia Senior Living Bowling Green, a retirement living facility, shared on the organization’s official TikTok account.

The Arcadia ladies matched outfits with Rihanna and her backup dancers, with 11 of the 12 women pulling off their killer moves in white (as were the outfits of the backup dancers) while the group’s very own Rihanna rocked in a red turtleneck and matching pajamas. 

The TikTok video lasted 12 seconds, depicting the most viral part of the star's performance. The grannies stood in pairs, and as the video proceeded, each pair started exiting the frame one by one, revealing leading lady Dora Martin dressed in her red outfit, lip-syncing and grooving on Rihanna’s hit single “Rude Boy.” 

“I’m just a silly person, and I like to do what other people want me to do," Dora told The Post.

The other showstoppers, Sue and Pat, 82 and 86 years old respectively, told the outlet that they were persuaded to make the now viral video by the 20-something-old employees at Arcadia Senior Living.

“They do a nice job at trying to change up the atmosphere here…by trying different things – and we enjoy falling for it," Pat said.
