Meet Grandma Boop.

You might not initially understand why she’s celebrating her 83rd birthday with a turkey on her head, but it will all make sense soon enough.

For decades this beloved grandma has had a dream: To be part of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. In the above video, she is seen responding to the news that she’ll finally live her dream – and then around the one-minute mark, she has a big reaction once this news sinks in.

Grandma Boop has a lot of questions – “Are we sneaking in? They can’t throw me out?” – but the video ends, assuring it’s all on the up-and-up and that Grandma Boop will be dressed up as a clown in this year’s parade.

Look out for Grandma Boop Thursday morning!
