Actress Betty White stole the hearts of the audience of this year’s Super Bowl when she appeared in an opening video and did the now famous dab move. White showed off her dabbing skills and proved she is the coolest nonagenarian who ever existed.
White took the dabbing move to the next level in a Ron Howard-directed opening clip which featured a number of Hollywood celebrities who shared their Super Bowl memories.
