SMU Seniors’ Flash Mob

The SMU seniors decided to have a flash mob where they decided to lie down in the middle of the concourse to celebrate their last day of school, check out the video (the organisers have a little interview at the end):

The interesting thing is the flash mob did have a social media hand guiding it. A Facebook event, Jacqueline’s post along with well-placed tweets on Twitter like:

Flash Mob Tweets

Eventually a lot of the word spread online and definitely in real life, leading up to the event you just saw. Pretty amazing isn’t it? (A quick Tweetscan shows that many people around the world are using Twitter to announce flash mobs!)

Oh I’m not usually a video person and I know the video looks like it was just pieced together (because it was). I’m sure the pros will be doing a better one, my intention is to get the word out and show that social media does get real life events into motion!
