Commercial Break: Rail Mob Rules
You might well have already seen this, T-Mobile’s new TV ad; if you have, you'll probably want to watch it again, and if you haven’t, you’re in for a treat.
It’s a flashmob-type dance extravaganza that took place in London’s Liverpool Street Station last Thursday at 11am. At first we were sceptical about the merits of it all but that changes as it develops.
We were almost sobbing with joy by the end, as scores of commuters get caught up in a song and dance whirlwind where normally there would just be quiet moping and barely-suppressed irritation.
This kind of random glee should be compulsory – once a month in a secret location in every town and city in Britain. And slides in the workplace; yeah, we want them as well.
