Flash mobs can be pretty amazing (Exhibit A: Prison dance mob of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”), but including a group of senior citizens in the mix adds a new level of awesome.

Hal Majors, who just happens to be 103 years old, led a Christmas-themed flash mob at a Chili’s Restaurant in Paradise, California.

In the video below, Majors is leading a train of mostly senior citizens in a flash mob under the backdrop of the "Glee" cast version of "Last Christmas."

The senior citizens of Feather Canyon Retirement also hit the nearby Chico Mall for a second flash mob performance with walkers and canes in hand.

"Most of them didn't know what (a flash mob) was," the home’s assistant manager Minette Harper told the Chico Enterprise Record. "Their generation has a totally different idea of what flashing is."

Majors, along with 90-year-old Isabel Edmonds and 83-year-old Gloria Toppan, participated in the flash mobs.

"Age doesn't (stop us)," Toppan said. "Health does, but age doesn't."
