by | PopCrush

Leave it to Beyonce and Jay Z to go above and beyond in every aspect of their lives. Their most recent display of excellence comes from a surprise delivered in the form of a video to U.S. troops stationed in Kuwait and Afghanistan this past New Year’s Eve. Once the clock struck midnight, balloons fell from the sky and a video of Beyonce appeared overhead. Talk about a sweet dream.

In the video, Beyonce says, “I just want to say a big thank you to all of our troops for doing everything you’re doing to keep our country safe. We all sleep better at night knowing that you guys are protecting us, and we are filled with gratitude. So we wanted to do something special for you guys.”

The video then goes on to give the troops a special screening of Beyonce and Jay-Z’s ‘On the Run’ HBO concert film. Talk about an awesome way to ring in the new year! You can check out the video above.

According to a USO press release, SSGT Ferguson, who is stationed in Afghanistan, said (quote via Billboard), “Watching the ‘On the Run’ concert made me forget I was in Afghanistan for the holidays…thank you.”
