Pregnant Mom Dances Tto Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' In Hopes Of Triggering Birth
A pregnant Florida woman tried to trigger the birth of her overdue son by dancing to Michael Jackson's “Thriller” in her front room.
Bonnie Northsea went full zombie to copy every single move from the King of Pop's classic 1980s music video, USA Today reported.
She starts by telling the camera: "So someone told me ‘Thriller’ would induce labor, here we go."
Hilarious footage then sees her clawing her hands, dropping her shoulders and shuffling from side-to-side on her tip toes.
Northsea posted the comical video to Facebook on Wednesday.
"Here I am on my due date 40 weeks looking like a fool. I'm so awesome!" she wrote.
It soon went viral, and has now been seen more than 1.4 million times.
Northsea, who also has a 3-year-old son, said she decided to upload her own version of the dance after watching an online "instructional video."
"I thought it would be something cute to make my friends laugh on Facebook," she told Yahoo Parenting.
The pregnant mom then uploaded the footage to YouTube, where it's been seen an additional 685,000 times.
It's not known whether Northsea has yet had her baby. But she did reveal that the popularity of the video had brought some welcome relief to the family.
"My husband is fighting a battle with testicular cancer (just diagnosed a month ago) so it has been difficult emotionally recently," she wrote on YouTube.
"This video really helped as it has caused me to laugh over and over again," she added.
