Flash Mob Footage

As seen on the front page of today’s paper:

Today I have a flash mob hangover. The excitement peaked in downtown Longmont, Colorado last night when about 60 of us “spontaneously” broke into a funky dance to the Black Eyed Pea’s “Dirty Bit.” I only had one beer beforehand to calm my flash mob nerves. I can now die a happy woman.

I am the one to the right in the *short* jean shorts and olive colored v-neck – behind the woman in the purple who happens to be my son’s Spanish teacher. Emma is beside me in the red shirt. Do not look too closely at my moves. But, at least I knew the steps.

Some people fall at 49 seconds, which is kind of funny. My son is narrating.

Ever been in a flash mob? Want to be? I was a flash mob virgin until last night.

  1. HOw fun!! I was expecting you to run out in the front and "flash" us or something BEth-like. I'm disappointed in you! Highly. Who is taking the video? so funny. :) Loved it! Never been in one...they wouldn't let me I'm sure...I. have. NO. Moves.

    But I can stretch my stomach skin and I really can't believe I posted a video for you.

    The second FM was at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival lobby - all students Gr. 4-8 of their school.

  11. Super cute! Looked like a lot of fun! Wish I could do something like that. :-)

    So is it just me, or does the woman in front, with the blue tank and long black hair, look like the woman in the B.E.P. / Oprah flash mob (that I think an earlier post linked to)? Is it the same person?

  27. I have to admit that I didn't even look for you because I couldn't take my eyes off the little cute boy in the green top. He had ALL the moves - well nearly all of them.

    ReplyDelete
  28. How come you didn't all strip off your clothes to reveal matching outfits?? SUAR shirts, maybe?

    @Sue - not appropriate to give props to the dude in there. Since he's not a dude anymore. Pretty sure you turn in your man card the moment you knowingly step into that group.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Yay! That was fun. Loved the little bit in the green polo. He was totally into it. I believe your son has a future in broadcasting!

    ReplyDelete

  34. LOL! The narration is priceless. "I don't know why all these girls are doing this..."

    ReplyDelete
  35. Okay. That's kinda weird. From the comments I see this is something common that happens there? I guess we've been out of the country too long. Hmmm. Still wondering WTF...

    ReplyDelete
  36. love it. This is awesome. What is truly awesome is that you don't do anything half-assed. You are into it and that is the best because it proves that you just enjoy life.

    Flash away SUAR....Flash away!!!!
