Steve Young Flash Mob Ready for Primetime

Barbara Young pulled off an amazing surprise for your husband Steve's 50th birthday.

With three Super Bowl rings, six NFL passing titles,  two MVP awards, a national television gig, a place in the Hall of Fame, a law degree and a loving family, Steve Young pretty much has it all.

That is the dilemma facing his wife Barbara every year as she tries to figure out what to give the legendary San Francisco 49ers' quarterback for his birthday.

So this year, for Steve's 50th, Barbara Young got creative.

Steve Young's better half organized a flash mob for her husband that included about a hundred strangers performing a spontaneous dance.

It started with a "fan" asking for an autograph and that spun into a dance number with dozens of extras.

Barbara not only organized the event, she was in the front row with the dancers.

Young's birthday is today, but the surprise happened a week back at the Stanford Shopping Mall (outside Bloomingdales). 

TMZ posted a clip last week, but the one below is edited and supplies the entire story.

Happy Birthday Steve!

Young took in the scene with two of his children in his arms.
