I’ve even never seen one live, but I’ve enjoyed a few on YouTube. And for some reason, though I’m not a Michael Jackson fan at all (there have to be some), the flash mobs after his death got my attention. It was 2009 and the filming of those events was not that professional. I especially enjoyed the ones in Stockholm, Sweden and Paris, France got my attention. And I even started to like some of Michael Jackson music afterwards.
Over the years the filming got better, it’s gotten commercial and even used for completely different occasions like a marriage proposal (although I believe those things also happened before but without the name flash mob).
Recently I saw a new one that really moved me and in case you haven’t seen it, I would love you to. It’s a classical performance of a part of Beethoven 9th and a great one.
