Dear Flash Mobs,
It is time that somebody let people know that flash mobs aren’t as cool as they used to be. I enjoy a good flash mob as much as the next guy sitting on the couch surfing the net but don’t a lot of them seem a little bit pretentious? The first ever flash mob was a failure because they couldn’t keep it a secret. Flash, fizzle, “Move along you crazies.” The second flash mob was super awesome. They didn’t sing or dance. What?! In Manhattan 130 people went to Macy’s to shop for a “love rug”. It had to be a group decision, they claimed, as they all lived together in a warehouse on the edge of New York. Now that is a flash mob. I want to see more of those.
