A pregnant Florida woman tried to induce labor by dancing to Michael Jackson’s hit song Thriller.

“Someone told me Thriller would induce labor,” Bonnie Northsea wrote on Facebook. “Here I am on my due date 40 weeks looking like a fool. I’m so awesome!”

The 32-year-old, who has a 3-year-old son, told Yahoo Parenting that she uploaded her Thriller video to Facebook after watching an instruction video on the dance.

“I thought it would be something cute to make my friends laugh on Facebook,” Northsea told Yahoo Parenting.

The mom’s dance moves have already been watched more than 1,400,000 times on Facebook and more than 400,000 times on YouTube.

Northsea says the video has been helpful in many ways.

“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 caused me to laugh over and over again.”

No word on if the woman’s attempt to induce labor was successful.
