    The stupidest **** I have watched. Blew my mind at how dumb ppl are. First everyone is busy and then dancing all of a sudden? And why do most of those videos have helmets? And why are they all 30 sec videos? Sounds like the Mexican lady is saying terrorist in her language. The crank that soulja boy dance was better and I frickin hate soulja boy,

    Yeah, I saw this a few days ago and then I saw my school is making their own video also saw many other schools,organizations made some. It's interesting to say the least, I just don't get it.

    My place of work wanted to do something similar, called a flash mob. They wanted us to turn up to some random place like a major train station or shopping area. All wearing normal clothes and appearing to be completely in connected and unknown to each other. Then someone cracks on some music and we all have to dance around.

    No... They could not afford enough alcohol to get me to the state that I would dance. And if they could, I would be so tanked that I would not make good publicity.

    These internet memes/fads are getting worse by the day. I always thought flash mobs were stupid and now this is worse.

    People will act like fools just to be part of a trend these days. There were fads and trends in the past but nothing as pointless as some of the things we see today.

    This was pretty stupid I agree. But some flash mob stuff I've seen is pretty great if it's choreographed right. Things like spontaneous Christmas carols is malls, and classical concerts where the musicians join one by one are pretty awesome.

    But this borders on idiocy.

    Another non-fan here. I do like some of the flash mob events though, like this promotional event for the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra:
