There are plenty of things in life that, while necessary, are ultimately pretty boring.
Every day, we need to get up, shower, make breakfast and make our way out of the home into the world. After that, we typically need to go about our duties of either going to school or to work.
In between, there are all the basic errands we typically run from going to the gym, picking up kids from school and going grocery shopping. Although we get used to our routines pretty quickly, there’s always those rare occasions where something special happens that snaps us out of our routine.
And that’s perhaps why internet flash mobs have become so popular!
For those who don’t know, a flash mob is a spontaneous public gathering or performance.
In essence, a group of every day people will suddenly break out in some kind of singing or dancing performance that will later be posted on the internet.
In some cases, a flash mob has more of a point to it—somebody or something is being celebrated, or the performance is being used to raise money for a cause of some kind. In other cases, however, the flash mob itself is the entire point—it’s just an opportunity to spread joy!
And that was definitely the case in this video.
The performance took place in a Costco store in Santa Cruz, California in February, 2019.
As the clip begins, it’s clear that it was just an ordinary day in the store like any other. People are milling around shopping and cashiers are tending to their needs.
Near the front of the store, a large group of people are looking at the piles of clothes as well and seemingly minding their own business. A moment later, some Indian music starts to play—and suddenly the whole crowd springs to life.
What follows is a Bollywood-themed flash mob that nobody was expecting!
First, all the dancers gather in a group and do a few poses in front of the cash registers.
Everyone in the performance is clearly having a great time doing the performance and all the other shoppers are gathering in a circle to watch the performance! Before long, everybody there is clapping along and enjoying the show.
All together, there must be more than 50 dancers participating. Although there’s a big group at the beginning, soon enough the formation changes and there are solo dancers coming through the crowd as well!
By the end, the whole thing turns into a store-wide dance party.
When it’s all over, the whole crowd gives them a huge round of applause.
So far, the clip has gotten more than two million views on YouTube and has been shared all over the internet. Although there are plenty of reasons and ways to have a flash mob, sometimes the simplest of these performances turn out to be the best ones.
In this one, the goal was pretty simple: put on a joyous show for all the shoppers at the local store to brighten up their day. As anybody who watched the video can plainly see, they definitely accomplished that goal.
Congratulations to everyone who was involved with organizing this great surprise! Watch the full performance in the clip below:
