6 O’Clock BS – I <3 Flash Mobs

I’d love to find myself in the middle of a flash mob someday! What a great vehicle for expression and a memorable way to show that you’ve organized people to make a statement*. Speaking of – if anyone has a link to video of the California Domestic Workers “Respect” flash mob that was supposed to have happened on 8/21/12 at the Sacramento State Capitol can you post it in the comments? I found the instructional video on YouTube, but a brief search on YT and Vimeo hasn’t yielded video of the actual flash mob.

This one’s a little older. It was put on to celebrate (okay, probably advertise) the 50th anniversary of West Side Story. Fun!

*Or no apparent statement or art for art’s sake.

    My favorite flash mob video: Som Sabadell. The girl who puts the coin in the hat got her money’s worth.

      I love how many of the people in the actual audience knew the song well enough to sing along, and the young man explaining the conducting to his female companion. You would never see an audience that knowledgeable in the US, probably not in the concert hall and certainly not on the street.

      The Som Sabadell flashmob remains my favorite ever.
