All Kinds Of Kinds
Via BookwormRoom comes this video of an exceptional flash mob in Russia. The occasion being the marriage, and subsequent surprise, of a young couple by their friends. Bookworm offers it for enjoyment with some historical context for the video. I, however, loved it for one simple reason: the look of surprise on the bride's face as she realizes just exactly what her friends have done for them.
Plus, I love the song
Ok, that's two reasons. Cue the YouTube.

I loved that! Completely restores my faith in humanity, at least for another 20 minutes.

These kids went to a LOT of trouble to set that up. And I've gotta love the old-school boom box too.

As Flash Mobs go, these two are fun, too.
I noticed that Ode to Joy seems to be a popular piece for Orchestral Flash Mobs. No doubt because of the way the music lays instruments out works well with the flash-mob concept.
And it is, without a doubt, a gorgeous song.
And then there's this one. "Call Me Maybe", notable for how and where it takes place.

P.S., not that it has anything to do with Flash Mobs, but with Ode To Joy:
Joy, by Apollo 100, from 1972:

OK, my mistake... Joy was not based on Ode to Joy. I'd mistakenly remembered it as doing so.
