Stealthy ninjas descended on Adelaide on Saturday, September 17. Dressed in black, they made their way through Rundle St. and Rundle Mall, silently moving through the crowds of people enjoying the shopping. Continue reading
Adelaide’s City Messenger have recently launched their Weird World of Sports video page, featuring different types of sport being played around Adelaide. Although, it might be a stretch to call what the Adelaide Flashmob does a ‘sport,’ we didn’t say no when the opportunity came up! They came out and took some footage of our Newspaper Mama event which was done in Rundle Mall, and added it to their Weird World of Sports roundup.
What’s even better is that they asked us (Ben Teoh and Nick Morris) to be part of their actual print article too! Check it out!
Head over to the City Messenger’s Weird World of Sports page to see the video footage and other cool stuff happening in Adelaide.
I was all set to write up a great blog post about the recent 30 Seconds of Fame flashmob, but there’s no need to! Anastassia Perets from Inside Adelaide came along with her film crew to report on the event. Check out the video!
Congrats goes out to Bayside Zumba for pulling together a great flashmob event here in Adelaide. Rundle Mall was swamped by people dancing, chanting, clapping, cheering… it was pretty full on! As would be expected, a huge crowd watched as the spectacle happened!
Last night, the Adelaide Flashmob visited Rundle Mall for a bit of covert spy action. The event called for the most elementary form of espionage camouflage – a simple newspaper. Take note, Burn Notice writers. With plenty of people in Rundle Mall, staying incognito was a little trickier than we had expected…
Cheers to the City Messenger and 44 Adelaide for coming out and grabbing footage of the event!
Date: Friday, 11th February
Meeting Place: Hindmarsh Square
Superman, Sponge Bob, Astro Boy and Indiana Jones all made an apperance today at today’s No Pants Ride 2011. The Adelaide Flashmob were part of the first group of cities to take part in the global No Pants Subway Ride event run by Improv Everywhere. This annual event sees thousands of people worldwide on different forms of public transport taking of their pants and feeling the breeze! Thankfully, here in Adelaide the sun was out – a perfect day for a tram ride without pants.
At 12pm, the flashmobbers met up at Hindmarsh Square to run through the how things were going to work and to split into teams. After waiting for a few of the latecomers, we made our way to the Pirie STreet tram station for the first tram. Each of the teams were assigned a tram stop where they would get off, take their pants of and wait for the next tram. Communuters on the second tram watched on as more and more people entered the tram doors, without pants on. Continue reading
2010 – what a great year for the Adelaide Flashmob! It was a busy one this year, with a whole bunch of new events happening. We sang happy birthday to strangers, dressed up like Jackie Chan, rickrolled shoppers and launched a spontaneous musical in Rundle Mall… and that’s just for starters! Continue reading
Wind and rain couldn’t keep us away from today’s Burst Into Song and Dance event.
For weeks, a core team of performers (headed up by the dangerous duo, Nicole and Dirk) have been practicing their roles for the Adelaide Flashmob’s own rendition of “Little Town” from the Disney classic, Beauty and the Beast. Today, their hard work paid off as they were joined by a small band of extra flashmobbers for a brilliant performance that would draw in huge crowd of Christmas shoppers at Rundle Mall.
At 2:30pm, a lone singer stood in the Gawler Place canopy to sing a chorus of “Oh Holy Night.” Just as she hit her high note, she was rudely interrupted by the over-head speakers playing a completely different song.
As the song played, a young lady in a blue dress stepped out from the hustle and bustle of Sunday Christmas shoppers and launched into “Little Town.” As the song progressed, more and more of the ‘shoppers’ joined in with their parts until the single singer was joined by a full chorus line of singers and dancers! Everyone played their parts perfectly. Even the people who had only learnt the song two hours earlier, were spot on (for many of them, it was their first flashmob!).
As suddenly as the performance started, it ended.
The music ended, the flashmobbers dispersed, and the Sunday shoppers were once again entertained by the antics of the Adelaide Flashmob.
