This is just too bizarre for words. Kerkorian turned 95 yesterday, and his fiancé, Joan Dangerfield, the widow of comedian Rodney Dangerfield, wanted to give him a special gift. So as Forbes staffer Brian Solomon explains (and which you can see from the video), the soon-to-be Mrs. Kerkorian lures her man into a secluded courtyard at the Beverly Hills Hotel for what was supposed to be a private dinner - and then surprises him with a flash mob dancing to "To Know Him Is To Love Him" by The Shirelles. What's really weird about the stunt (well, the whole thing is pretty weird), is Kerkorian 's notorious reputation for privacy (he hasn't done a real interview in decades). Mrs. Dangerfield, who is 59 but in her opening bit looks more like 29 (hey, this is Beverly Hills, baby!), obviously wants him to get out more. Don't be surprised if this video disappears from YouTube, like fast.
