Rich at happyrobot.net reports on the biggest flash mob yet. And you wondered what caused those blackouts.
Meanwhile, anonymous organizers in Austin, Texas are preparing for the world’s first Slash Mob:
The Slash Mob Project is an interesting phenomenon where people gather at a determined point, kill all surrounding onlookers, and then disperse as fast as arriving, thus leaving the onlookers dazed, bewildered, and hopefully dead by what they just experienced…
Join the group to find out what great ideas pop up around Austin, to show off your new fannypack, and to kill people.
Dark flash mob humor isn’t limited to Texas; someone in the U.K. coined the term Flash Mugging.
In Montreal, “AndrÈ” is trying to create a FLESH Mob:
All must bring a back pack to recognize themselves and gather so as to become a small compact crowd…
At a specific hour, all the participants will strip and collect their clothing in their back pack. Some can only wear a g-string…
All the participants will have to dress and disperse before that becomes an illegal demonstration.
(I’m sure Spencer Tunick would appreciate that.)
