Asesome, Volker! I just wish train journeys were that nice in London! :-)

Our train does this but it involves fifty different headsets playing 50 different songs

Einfach nur schön.

I watched several urban pranks. What I really like, correction: love! are the smiles and laughs of the bystanders. It takes little to make people happy - it wish this would happen more often.

I totally agree with Jörg. And btw I love flashmobs :-).

Sehr sehr schön. Danke fürs teilen ;-)

I wonder how many times they tried until they got the crescendo at 1:10 sync'd with the train leaving the tunnel after the Lergravsparken station into the sunlight :)

Danke, danke, danke!!! Einfach wunderschön...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flash_mob

The term, coined in 2003, is generally not applied to events and performances organized for the purposes of politics (such as protests), commercial advertisement, publicity stunts that involve public relation firms, or paid professionals.

Sure, it's nice to watch. But it's an illusion not to say a manipulation. The sound? Ahh, c'mon, any noise in the background? How often they tried to get the crescendo sync'ed. Well... The one thing I dislike more is advertisement using children.

No one forces me to watch it I guess. So just my 2c.

Okay, this is definitely assembled from a lot of shots: You hear the "Fasanvey" announcement, and after that you see the "Lindevang" indication on the display. It's in the opposite direction of what the train is supposed to travel (if you take the indication on the station). Seconds later, you can read "Islands Brygge", which is on the opposite end of the city. So the final video was assembled from a lot of videos in several metro trains. Nonetheless I believe it must have been great fun to make and also amusing to people boarding the train not knowing what is going on. So it might not be a "flashmob" by wikipedia standards, but if people had fun making it, who cares?

what a great idea! it proofs: music is worth a smile, at least!

Heiko Müller, 2012-05-08

In the end it´s certainly a well prepared ad like Dirk said.
But it just still.made.me.smile

Gänsehaut! Dieser Tag war dann wohl definitiv für die teilnehmenden - aktiv und passiv - gerettet, oder?

Robert Schneider, 2012-05-09

Kinder haben es gut. Sie erfreuen sich einfach am Augenblick und hinterfragen nicht jeden glücklichen Moment.

Ich will Kind bleiben
