Flash Mob @ DU

After the video of the flash mob at Ohio State, the University of Denver Programming Board decided to try to create a flash mob at DU.  The ideal time would be during May Days, our annual week-long spring festival.  People were brought together from all over campus and people posted that a “surprise” would occur on the Driscoll Green at a certain time (so that extra people would be in the area and participating in other May Days events).

The video, edited by a student, is pretty cool:

I had originally planned on being involved and a part of the dance, but life was too busy.  I did help recruit people though.  While I think that too many songs may have been used, it was a great idea and definitely a success.  There were a ton of students watching this!

DU Today, our school’s news site has a story about the flash mob.

Flash Mob @ Ohio State

The new “flash mob” trend is pretty awesome.  I really like the organized yet spontaneous nature of flash mobs.  While they confuse people, they seem to genuinely make people happy.

Earlier this week, The Ohio State University had a flash mob in their new student center.  It included the mascot and the university’s President.  How awesome!  Now DU is trying to organize something like this, perhaps for May Days.  Interested?  Let me know and I’ll put you in touch with the right people.
