 Breaking News!  Flash Mob Breaks Out in North Park Mall in Dallas, Texas!

460 ordinary looking shoppers wandered in to Nordstrom's at North Park Mall on Saturday without any notice until they burst into singing a rousing "Hallelujah Chorus" which stopped every shopper and clerk inside the store dead in their tracks.  For five minutes this Flash Mob filled the air with complete spontaneity...right there in the cosmetic department.  

What Is a Flash Mob?

 A group of people who gather at a predetermined time and place to perform a silly prank such as yelling at the top of their lungs for 30 seconds and quickly dispersing before the police arrive. Using cellphones, the flash mob can change its venue if the first one has been compromised. Why do they do this? Because they can!

Spontaneous, Fast Communications....The flash mob can be quickly organized by e-mail, blogs, texting and social networks, and messages can be forwarded several times to increase its size. Bill Wasik, senior editor of Harper's Magazine, claimed to organize the first successful flash mob in the summer of 2003 in New York. A hundred people gathered in Macy's rug department to shop for a "love rug," saying they all lived together and made purchases only as a group.  Read more: http://www.answers.com/topic/flash-mob#ixzz18g11nnYu

We get homes sold

Barbara - maybe we need them for a few open houses to generate some interest. Would work well in the snow, like today. Cheers.

Hello Larry, what an idea...to warm things up in all that snow.  It is in the 70s today here.

Melissa, isn't this crazy!  Thanks for commenting.

There is a group Knight's Art which is going around the country doing "1000 Random Acts of Culture" where groups start singing in shopping centers and other unexpected areas.  My friends were in Philly when they popped up at Wannamakers with 600 plus singers.  What a great way to celebrate the season and spread cheer throughout the country.
