    Life is beautiful!

    Firstly I wanted to post it into the Culture, then in the Funn stuff forums, but both are dedicated to the Russian culture and jokes.
    So I desided to share my news in general discussion.
    Though I must say I have just seen these news in the Russian newsblock Новости Культуры.
    Anyway nothing is important, but when I saw this it simply made my day completely! I'd say it is the most wonderful thing I have seen in this year! I have to have it, so if anyone here knows the sourse of similar happenings or where I can download them on my computer, please post the links here.

    The opening takes some minutes.
    Enjoy all three flashmobs. I did!

    These are not as "fun" as the dancing; however, here are two that I know of...

    Here is one that took place in New York...

    My girls were asked to participate in this one that took place in Washington, DC, alas, they had exams that day. United Way is a non-profit charitable organization and their slogan for this year is Live United.

    I am very impressed, I never knew something like this exist - so simple and so great by the effect which it makes on the passing people!
    It's great and... it's simply great.
    It has very strong effect for the side observer who is not involved into the trick.
    Undercover actors.
    Last time I was as touched when I saw 200 meters of legs, dancing as the one in the Riverdance show.
    Simply amazing!
    Thank you rockzmom! By the way the freeze group looks totally unbeliaveable, it's not like the dancing group effect where the people are alive - the frozen look spooky. Great!
    I imagine the impressions of the walkers. I have мурашки!
    Though I gues the Olympic Openings in Peking were as nice looking, but it was a planned and expected spectacle.

    Roosters, thanks for your link as well!
    Я так думаю.

    No, I were not and I couldn not. It's not close enough. Also my dad is in a hospital and I am with him most of the time.
    Yeah, it was something in Downtown!

    Re: Life is beautiful!

    Here is the newest one and even though it seems to be a promotion for the TV Show "Glee" (which I have posted about in the Film/TV thread and is a GREAT show)... this is still a cute flash and a wonderful idea to promote the show. Now of course if this had been done in say New York City right before Christmas and you blocked everyone's way, it would not have gone very well! People would have not been happy with Glee AT ALL! Yet it seems the Italians enjoyed it very much!
