Friends and fans of Thomas Sanders just set the bar for #BirthdayGoals!

When you're celebrating your birthday at an event as huge as Playlist Live, it might be hard to get people to pay attention and celebrate with you properly. That is, unless, you're Thomas Sanders!

Our fave Viner-turned-YouTuber-turned-awesome-guy celebrated his 27th birthday on the last day of the event, held in Orlando this weekend. With both a meetup and a stage slot scheduled for that day, Thomas was all set for a busy one; but his friends and fans weren't about to let him forget to celebrate.

First, he got a cute surprise at his meetup from his fans.


(And yep, there's video!)


Then he had a stage set later in the day...


...But a bunch of pals crashed it - with a tribute video, and dancers!


(There's video of that too)


Thomas' pal Leo the Giant seems to have been the mastermind behind the whole thing.

Happy birthday to the one and only @thomassanders! ????? I cried picking out these pics? oh,the good ole days. Happy birthday love

It was all totes emosh.


And if all of that wasn't enough, Thomas got to close out his birthday in Universal Studio's Islands Of Adventure.


(Which was only open for the guests of Playlist Live!)

As far as convention birthdays go, Thomas definitely hit the jackpot!
