When you're pregnant and past your due date, rumor has it that dancing can help induce labor -- a theory that Bonnie Northsea has fully embraced. The mom was past her due date on February 11th, so she decided to test the dance-to-induce-labor idea out ... with the dance Michael Jackson's "Thriller" -- and it's AWESOME. 

Bonnie filmed herself dancing to an instructional video to learn the famous choreography from the "Thriller" video. She posted along with the video (which is going viral) on YouTube:

"Someone told me that thriller would induce labor. Here I am on my due date 40 weeks, February 11, 2015, looking like a fool...LOL. My Facebook video has 55,000 views after 24 hours, so I thought I would place on YouTube as well. My husband is fighting a battle with Testicular Cancer (just diagnosed a month ago) so it has been difficult emotionally recently. This video really helped as it has caused me to laugh over and over again."

If this didn't help induce labor for her, at least Bonnie already has a jump start on losing any weight she gained during pregnancy with the cardio she just did (which looks like very little, if any ... she's pretty slim for being pregnant).
