Amazing flash mobs
Flash mobs are assemblies of people who perform strange or unusual acts in public areas for satirical or entertainment purposes. Organised almost solely using social media, flash mobs have been occurring since 2003 and are now widely used for advertising campaigns, publicity stunts and raising political awareness, as this video shows.
New flash mobs are happening all the time, and they are amazing. Ranging from 100-5000 people strong, the organisation and choreography involved for a successful mob is huge.
The shock on the faces of unsuspecting members of public is priceless. I was caught up in one the other day; the dispersal happened so quickly I couldn’t find out the mob’s focus. I’m sure my surprised face will be on the net soon enough.
