It commenced with a black-and-white clip showing a younger-looking Marie Frances O'Brien carrying her little granddaughter, Allison, as they danced in circles. The twosome looked excited as they performed the dance routine.

The video then cut to the pair doing the routine two decades later. This time, Allison, now a grown woman, took the lead, carrying her grandmother instead, creating a surprising twist.

Both women looked cheerful as they grooved to Whitney Houston's "Wanna Dance With Somebody," leaving an air of excitement around them. The caption on the post read: "When you used to carry your granddaughter to dance. But now, at 93, she carries you."

One TikToker described the clip as a definition of life, which encompasses love, laughter, dancing, nature, family, and strength.

O'Brien and her granddaughter began making TikTok dance videos a while ago as a means of cheering up Allison's mom, Colleen Krause, who was battling Lymphoma.

Speaking to interviewers, O'Brien admitted her granddaughter came up with the idea of making funny videos to make Colleen laugh. The two got to work, making a video of them dancing, among other things.

Their tactic got O'Brien's daughter to laugh, finally embracing happiness. Hence, the twosome decided to keep up with it, making more videos and sharing them on TikTok. The grandma explained:

"This is very new to me because I never knew about TikTok. It's just fantastic. And if it can bring joy and laughter, and these silly videos can make people laugh. That's all I want."

The 93-year-old has since taken over the internet, spreading happiness with her dancing videos, earning a reputation as the dancing grandma.
