Flash Mob Dance at Mall of Asia

Last Saturday I was invited to attend an event by Jollibee at Mall of Asia and since I wanted to be a mall rat for that day I decided to go. I had no idea what to expect when they said that we should just go to Haagen Dazs near the Atrium area. There was no set-up at the activity area so we thought it was going to be a mob scene. So we ate yummy ice cream and waited.

It was more than a mob scene, watch this -


A very interesting way to market Jollibee virally don't you think? I thought there was just going to be a few kids dancing and was totally surprised with the number of kids dancing to different tunes. Three hundred teens converged to do the 4-minute dance number choreographed by Whiplash and directed by Mark Reyes. The short "show" was indeed amazing to watch :)

    That's awesome. What time was it? We were there and didn't even heard or witnessed it!

    I'll call it simply as an organized mob dance tho ;) At least according to Wikipedia and their sources :p -> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flashmob

  5. This is similar to the T-mobile mob dance commercial that I saw on YouTube. It's fun to watch.

  6. A flash mob (or flashmob)[1] is a large group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual action for a brief time, then quickly disperse. The term flash mob is generally applied only to gatherings organized via telecommunications, social media, or viral emails.[2][3][4][5][6][7] The term is generally not applied to events organized by public relations firms or as publicity stunts.[8][4]

    (what can i say? im not impressed with this marketing gimmick.)
