“More than 4,000 clubbers danced through the rush hour at Victoria station in Britain’s biggest flash mob stunt,” Tim Stewart reports for The Evening Standard.
“Revellers responded to e-bulletins urging them to ‘dance like you’ve never danced before’ at 6.53pm,” Stewart reports.
Stewart reports, “There were knowing looks and giggles among the casually dressed crowd that gathered from 6.30pm, wearing earphones.”
“A deafening 10-second countdown startled station staff and commuters before the concourse erupted in whoops and cheers. MP3 players and iPods emerged and the crowd danced wildly to their soundtracks in silence – for two hours,” Stewart reports. “Last night’s flash mob ended when four vanloads of police dispersed the dancers. The event was staged by clubbing website mobileclubbing.com. Invitation emails and texts went out a week in advance.”
