On Thursday, September 13, NFL player Dre Kirkpatrick threw a tailgate party at Loveland Health Care Nursing & Rehab Center. Fully equipped with a DJ, food, and games, the Cincinnati Bengals cornerback came ready to party. But he probably didn't think he would end up in a viral dance battle with a 95-year-old woman.

  • Cincinnati reporter Brandon Saho took to Twitter to share the epic dance off between Dre and nursing home resident Irma Shafer. 

    The video is hands down one of the best things Twitter has to offer. Irma was feeling the beat to the DJ's mix of Dr. Dre’s “The Next Episode” and Warren G’s “Regulate.” 

    And even when the football star tried to give her a high five, she just kept on shaking it!

  • Needless to say, the video clip made people's day! 

    The video, which was aired by WLWT 5, has gotten over 2 million views on Twitter. 

  • Even sports fans who are not fond of the Bengals couldn't deny how amazing the video was. 

  • Everyone is in agreement that Irma straight murdered the dance floor! 

  • This was such a kind gesture and hopefully it encourages other people to visit their local nursing homes. 

  • You never know when there is a grandma out there in need of a dance partner!
