Here's something you don't see every day: Former MGM owner and Las Vegas real estate magnate Kirk Kerkorian was surprised on his 95th birthday on Wednesday by a flash mob who danced around him on the grounds of the Beverly Hills Hotel to The Shirelles' song "To Know Him is to Love Him" -- a scene orchestrated by his fiancee, Joan Dangerfield.
As Dangerfield, 59 -- widow of late comedian Rodney Dangerfield -- sets it up in this video, the Beverly Hills Hotel is Kerkorian's favorite local hangout, where he was led to believe they would commemorate the milestone with a "quiet celebration."
But, Dangerfield continues, she wanted to do something to make the occasion more special for Kerkorian, who according to Forbes is worth $3.3 billion -- making him the 344th richest man in the world.
"What do you give the father of Las Vegas," Dangerfield asks, "who's a fromer professional boxer and a daredevil pilot, who basically epitomizes the American dream and has done so much for so many people?"
