Dick Van Dyke's birthday flashmob tribute
DICK Van Dyke's 90th birthday was marked by a chimney sweep flash mob.
The veteran actor reached the milestone age yesterday and enjoyed a number of public celebrations, including the 'Mary Poppins' dance tribute at Los Angeles' outdoor shopping mall The Grove on Saturday.
Dick and his wife Arlene Silver-Van Dyke, 44, stood on an upper level to cheer as the flash mob danced along to 'Step in Time', 'Jolly Holiday', 'Chim Chim Cher-ee' and 'Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious' and took part in a singalong, and he later described the performance - which was choreographed by Dana and Jenna Spellman - as "unbelievable".
He said in a YouTube video which he shared on Twitter: "Unbelievable! Oh my God! Great!"
Dick later joined the crowd to sing another tune from the musical, 'Let's Go Fly a Kite' and enjoyed having 'Happy Birthday' sung to him.
He later tweeted: "I am very grateful that at 90 years old, I can still go out and play!!"
And the birthday fun didn't end on Saturday as yesterday he was honoured in Disneyland with a dedication ceremony.
This time, he sang 'Jolly Holiday' for well-wishers, and was serenaded with 'Let's Go Fly a Kite'.
He and wife Arlene were the marshals for the Christmas Parade at the Californian resort and led the troupe in a classic car.

And the theme park even produced a limited-edition birthday cake to mark the actor's birthday, which was only available yesterday.
