There was a store in my immediate area that busted out a Flash Mob during Raindeer Run. I totally wish I could show you guys the video, lol. There were a few team members that got the memo late, lol. They were griping saying "you are all way too full of energy for 8am"

I happened to be there during the Flash Mob, lol. You can tell they shoved the people who didn't know what they were doing into the back.


Disclaimer: I'm NOT saying this is my store. It could be or it couldn't be. I'm not saying.

Has anyone done a flash mob at Target?

Uploaded today. I doubt it's your store, though.

Still, the one target closest to looking like the one I look at (it isn't my target :p)
Nope. This was was more elaborate and had all Sales Floor team members doing it.
This is the video. I might as well post it now since it's already on the internet and I'm sure someone will post it.

(another disclaimer: I AM NOT the recording it)

Not a flash mob per say - but still cool - to me at least


If you look through a few of these - there's some military


The first time I saw this was at the "Ton Son Nhut" air base ( Dodge City ) a hundred years ago.

The "Canuck's" played some "Kiwi's" that where flown in ( still have no idea why ) for a game. They would try to intimidate each other before their football games

Flash mobs are the essence of spontaneity, originality and non-asking-for-permissionness. Corporations and stores are the exact opposite: Branded, planned, globalized bureaucracy. These two don't mix. I like flash mobs, and I like Target, but the two of them combined churns my stomach. It's embarrassing.

Which describes flash mobs (elaborately choreographed, planned, and scheduled in advance) how?

I'm not knocking them--I mean, if it makes you happy, by all means do it--but they are not spontaneous in the slightest. They might look like it from the outside to a child, I suppose? But nobody really believes these things just happen.
