Saw a tweet by @tymberwolf yesterday that linked to an article about a freeze flash mob that happened at the Downtown Market. I was surprised that we had any flash mob activity here in Anchorage let alone something that would make a big enough splash to get in the news.
I did a search on YouTube hoping to find a video of the flash mob but…nothing. However I did find some other videos of different flash mobs that have happened around town. And the main Anchorage flash mob group has even started a YouTube page. Who knew?
Here’s a couple videos that tell stories of some of the local flash mobs:
A flash mob of people dressed up like zombies and dancing to Thriller in front of Northern Lights rush hour traffic.
United Way Flash Mob
The United Way doing a freeze flash mob downtown in hopes of the video going viral and getting donations. A nicely shot and edited video.
Flash Mob Reactions At Fred Meyer
This video done by the main Anchorage flash mob group shows people’s reactions to the first flash mob done by the group. It happened at a Fred Meyer and was basically a long line of people snaking through the aisles and singing Row Row Row Your Boat at the end.
Don’t know which Freddies it was (Abbott?) but I bet someone will tell me real soon after I post this lol. (Update 2:52pm Yup confirmed as Abbott by a couple of people, thanks guys.)
Right on, anything that spices up life in Anchorage is ok in my book :). What do you think?
