Whatever the choreography is, it's a lot of fun. Look the word up. Could change your life.
These aren't flash mobs.
A flash mob is a group of people who spontaneously gather somewhere and do something bewildering, like go to the rug department at Macy's and claim they are members of a commune looking for a love rug. Within a very few minutes (before police can get there for crowd control), they completely disperse. The point of it is to leave people baffled at why a bunch of people would collect, do a pointlessly weird thing, then leave.
A flash mob does not rehearse.
These stupid ass singing performances aren't "flash mobs," they're just attention whores. They've obviously pre planned and rehearsed. They're annoying.
We have a group in my town who wold definitely do this, they're so attention-whorey. They're always putting on "shows" at the local church (one of the members of the "troupe" is the pastor's daughter). They show up at any town event and volunteer to do a reenactment of something -- anything. They insist on being in all town parades. They are terrible. They can't sing. It's 99% women and the main entertainment they perform is ... get ready for it... Tap dancing.
About 70% of the girls are obese. Worse, they wear sheer tights (not even black ones), so you can see the tattoos and bruises on their fat legs. Believe me, fat bruises easily because these girls are all banged up from accidentally jabbing each other with their dancing canes.
It's torture. The town xmas tree lighting, the harvest festival, the clam chowder festival, the 4th of July parade, even Memorial Day they are out there singing and tap dancing. They are so bad it's like a cosmic joke is being played on the town.
AND GET OFF MY LAWN TOO!
Someone should do a parody flash mob where people throw up into their coffee cups when someone hits the wrong note, hold their ears and chant "ow ow ow," pretend to stab their eyeballs when ugly singers embrace, etc
I'd love to see (but perhaps not hear!)the LM so-called flash mob performers and those tap dancers.
I agree, Della. I would love to see the two-ton troupe of terrible tappers in action.
Regardless of what a flash mob may or may not be, R13, I'd rather look at a well-executed singing/dancing whateveryoucallit than a bunch of idiots going to said rug department. *Talk* about attention whores.
Here's the first flash mob video I ever saw, the intro to La Traviata at Reading Public Market in Phila. Don't you watch it, R13.
