I have a new fascination, and I can't decide if it makes me want to laugh or just join in. It's called Flashmobbing, and it comes in two forms:
The first is Mobile Clubbing, a very simple concept that challenges the need of an actual club for dancing. Just bring your groove and your own mp3 player to the agreed upon place, icons such as the steps of St. Paul's Cathedral or the madness of Victoria Station (pictured above, 4000 strong!) and you've got yourself - that's right, you catch on fast - a mobile club. The initial mob gets the party started, but the number tends to grow as every Londoner has an iPod in their pocket and tends to jump in once they realize what's going on.
The second is the London Pillow Fight Club, which works quite the same way, bring your own pillow (Leadenhall Market pillow fight pictured above).
These concepts are beginning to branch out to other cities all over the world, and I think it's fabulous! It's about time we all had some fun! Click here for the official site.
