Apparently the Michael Jackson classic is known to induce labour.
When you're overdue on your pregnancy, there are plenty of tried and true methods for inducing labour: spicy foods, sex, and apparently Michael Jackson choreography.
Florida mum-to-be Bonnie Northsea got a tip from a friend when her due date arrived, that doing the iconic "Thriller" dance routine would help bring the reluctant baby along. And because we live in a wonderful world of internet and filming and sharing, Bonnie posted the resulting dance online.
For someone carrying another human inside them, she does a remarkable job of keeping up.
Although there are still limits. Like how low you can go.
Honestly there are so many things to consider here: Bonnie's energy, the voice in the background video directing her on the moves... But we're here for the the weird little Darth Vader chair in the background.
A chair like that could only fit a small child, so kudos to the parents-to-be for getting the new baby started on sci-fi early on.
There's no word on whether or not Thriller Baby has arrived yet, but in the meantime you can watch the spellbinding routine below.
