Centraal Station Antwerpen gaat uit zijn dak!

This video was sent to me by student John Dixon. This highlights items similar to contagion theory and collective behavior.

A similar phenomenon to this video here is called "flash mobs". Read a bit from wikipedia here.

A highly popular flash mob can be seen here, and here.

Interesting stuff!


  1. I would LOVE to do something like this but alas, all of my friends are too self-conscious to do anything this rad. I watched all the links and I loved the "Sound of Music" and the and the frozen flash mobs the best. Thanks you posting these :)

  2. These videos were hilarious! I loved them. I think it'd be cool to be apart of something like this. I don't feel like it could happen here, with Owensboro being such a small town. Your right Reny...everyone gets embarrassed and is too worried about what others think. I really liked the "Sound of Music" one the best!

  3. Reny,

    There is nothing to keep you or anyone else in the big "O" from organizing a flash mob. You might not 200 peeps like in a big city, but counting people on twitter and FF I bet you could end up with 20-30.

  4. Ijust got a chance to watch this, It was wonderful. I just wonder if a group of soc student got together and did this,say at the bar b que fest could it mean extra credit??? It would be an interesting experiment and loads of fun for those brave enough to be different...
