Awesome Christmas Flashmob – Deck the Halls!

There is nothing that can bring a smile to my face as easily as a well executed, well intentioned Christmas flash mob. There is something about watching the surprise, the serendipity, and the music that brings out the joy of the season

We all need to take a minute to enjoy these kinds of things. I love them. Check it out. I’m sure you’ll love it too…

As I viewed this video, it had 122,336 visitors. I predict that by year end it will have over a million and will continue to get viral traffic for years to come. Good for the Carlson School of Business. If they are the ones behind this they are very smart. Besides all the fun of watching it, they got to show off a very beautiful and modern facility and great new media thinking all at the same time.

I’m not sure who organized this one but this was the text underneath the video…

The Carlson School of Management received a surprise visit from a saxophonist…and nearly 300 of his friends from the University of Minnesota’s School of Music this November.

“Deck the Halls” arr. Francisco J. Núñez and Jim Papoulis from “Coolside of Yuletide”
