    It was cute to begin with, but a flash mob that involves people just standing and singing for 5 minutes gets boring.

    Happy Festivus, all and to all an aluminum pole.

    It`s not that you are a grinch. Life is too short and too full of the same old routine to not enjoy little things like this. I genuinely pity you if you would react how you described.

    My choir broke out into the Hallelujah chorus the other night. We were all waiting around before a performance and someone on the piano started playing the accompaniment. Pretty soon there were over 100 people singing the Hallelujah chorus, and it wasn`t even a song we had practiced.

    stuff like that would really p*ss me off if i was eating with a friend, though from the looks of things it doesn`t exactly look like that sort of place i would casually go to eat...

    not cause i don`t eat cheap food, just cause i don`t eat junk food in malls...

    How dare they try and force their religion down my throat! That`s where my fast food goes! Now I`ve done lost my appetite! Don`t they know about separation of church and, uh, food court. LOL (note the sarcasm).

    Pretty freakin awesome if you ask me! Talented singers and pretty cool set up!

    I would be quite annoyed and be looking for the nearest exit.

    I wouldn`t be, for one reason - they can actually sing. It`s a hard piece to sing and they sung it scattered around a place that probably had poor acoustics. I was hovering over the stop button in case they weren`t up to the job, but they were.

    I think it should be illegal to use the word "Flash" on a video over 2 minutes. When I got to the end and and still no nudity, well I was quite let down. I mean celebrating a self purported mass murderer I can deal with. Whatever, fine... but to advertise flashing and not deliver?

    that was a display of far more talent than I expect to see from a "flash mob" I am impressed with how well they hit those high notes.

    They`re a real choir, hired to generate some publicity. It certainly worked. For their part, they got an interesting challenge (singing without an orchestra or conductor while scattered around a food court is quite different to formal choral singing) and a chance to show classical singing in an informal way, less seperated from the audience.
