I love flash mobs. I already told you this. Remember that G-20 flash mob by Point Park? Let’s watch that again and give ourselves some joy on this dreary Burgh day.

Loved that. Still do.

In partnership with the Secret Agent L project, Point Park had a flash mob last week in Market Square and I wanted to be sure you saw it.

I didn’t get to go, even though I was tipped off, because that was a day of meetings.

Have a watch.

I love Point Park students.

Someday I want to be in a flash mob, but since I can’t dance, I’m guessing it will have to be one of those ones where everyone strips on the subway or thousands of Santas mysteriously show up in one place.

GASP! A dancing jello-bellied Santa flash mob for Christmas! Make it happen.

    The only thing that could make that flash mob video more amazing would be if there were kittens in it.

    Wish I could hear the music better.

    A cool flash mob makes my cry (don’t know exactly why).

    Super cool one:


    I love the start when nobody is moving. No Dancers besides the first 20 people, but there was a practicing event before.

    @Christina — Me too! Every single time — crying, that is.

    They’re so poignant — mass cooperation and jubilation, just for those few moments — and you wish life were like that more often.

    Well, is cool and all, but, really, it looks like the only people in Market Square were the dancers.
