The ladies initially shared their video to the app on February 23, writing: ‘Our halftime show > Rihanna’s halftime show.’
The internet seemingly agreed with their sentiment, immediately skyrocketing the video to viral status in a matter of hours.
In less than a week, their recreation has received more than 24 million views.
That number continues to grow as does the number of comments with viewers sharing their delight, surprise, and even jealousy of how amazing the group is.
‘Do we have to wait until we’re seniors to live there?’ joked one commenter.
Three of the dancers in the video recently sat down with ‘Fox & Friends’ and explained how they came up with the idea and how they were given their parts.
Pat, Dora and Sue – three of the dancers – told the Fox host their social director had come up with the idea and pitched it to the group.
The sprite ladies were more than willing to give it a try.
Dora, who played ‘Rihanna,’ said she thinks she was chosen for a couple of reasons.
‘I think I had the biggest swing,’ she said, as Pat and Sue joked it was just because Dora had the red outfit to fit the role.

‘Omg I love these ladies,’ wrote one person. ‘Make more.’
‘This is the best thing I’ve seen today. Thanks for sharing,’ said another.
Despite their incredible moves and sense of humor, Dora said she was surprised by how viral it went for one reason.
‘Didn’t know I could move that quick,’ she said.
The wildest part? The video was done in a single take.
