New on the whole flash mob concept? No, there's no nudity involved.
I'll give you the basic rundown for this developing phenomenon:
According to Wikipedia (I liked this definition better than Webster's), a flash mob is "a large group of people who
assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual act for a brief time, then disperse."
From social experiment to Youtube phenom, the flash mob is now widely recognized as performance art. In 2008, a group of people froze in place at Grand Central Station, creating widespread curiosity among travelers, as well as more than 24 million Youtube hits. Last year Oprah organized a flash mob here in Chicago.
This weekend the inspired ladies over at All About Dance will be
doing a flash mob commercial for Kindercare, promoting their new science program. I can't give you all the deets, but I got a sneak peak of the dance and the song and both are catchy
and adorable--I promise you'll want to stop in the streets for this.
Anyway, look for them on Saturday between 11 am and 3 pm at various historical Chicago landmarks.
Let me know if you spot them!
