Because they’re so easy to post online for viral attention, flash mobs have become extremely popular.

Not only does the ability to post videos help, but social media has also made it possible to organize huge groups of dancers and get them on the same page. This flash mob at Mall of America left onlookers stunned and begging for more.

Seeing this from a birds-eye view is incredible!

This massive group of dancers puts on a spectacular flash mob to “Jailhouse Rock” by Elvis Presley.

There’s nothing quite like coordinated flash mobs—especially when they’re completely in sync with each other like this group at the Mall of America.

Back in 2010, this flash mob did a breathtaking performance for a crowd full of impressed and surprised shoppers.

At the beginning of the video, you can see a small group gathered getting ready to break out in a big dance. When the popular song by Elvis begins streaming through the speaker, the dancing takes over and the impressive display gets underway.

It starts with one single dancer running into the middle of the mall floor before a group of six dancers forms a big circle around him.

As the first group of dancers swings their arms and shakes their bodies in a circle, more and more dancers start coming into the mix.

Before long, everyone forms another circle in the middle with over a dozen dancers. After the first wave, the flash mob grows bigger with everyone mimicking each other’s moves.

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any bigger, the dancers point to the crowd and tons of people run out to join in the fantastic routine!

The whole mall floor is packed with dancers now, all of whom have obviously put in the practice needed to do a phenomenal routine.

They all have the classic Elvis dance moves down, gyrating their hips, swinging their legs, and waving their arms up and down.

We’ve all seen Elvis do the dance, but it’s truly amazing to see so many people doing it at the same time. About 3:40 into the video, the giant group of dancers grooves off stage and the first group comes back into the middle.

The timing these dancers have is remarkable!

They’re right on cue as the smaller first group runs back into the middle and the bigger group opens a path for them.

After all of that, both groups join each other for the grand finale.

The flash mob grows even bigger with all the dancers now breaking it down to “Jailhouse Rock.” Towards the end of the video, the flash mob gets so big that the camera can’t even capture them all!

Without skipping a beat, this flash mob gracefully commands the floor at the mall and turns it into an Elvis Presley dance hall.
