Brilliant job job of advertising. Something like this could never happen in the US because of fears of someone getting sued for something stupid. I remember a while back Cartoon Network did a viral ad campaign for adult swim and placed light up signs all over Boston and people thought they were bombs and terrorists attacks. It was a cartoon character made up of LED lights and people were freaking out.

Here's the story.

I love those public dance vids.

I was in the Tate and you know the turbine room, the big open area, there was a concert going on but everyone at it was wearing the gallery info headphones through which the music was playing. Strange to see 500 people dancing but no music playing.

They did something like this at Grand Central Station a while back. Definitely not as cool though.

T-mobile, that was one bad-*** commercial. "Life's for Sharing" showing the two people sending an mms at the end, brought it all together. Excellent.

A BIG group of dancers. Funky advert although I still won't touch T Mobile with a barge pole

And why do they always pick the busiest London Station for these? At least it wasn't peak period cos you'd have had a load of dead dancers!

Brings to mind Spencer Tunick, art installations featuring hundreds of naked people are his thing.

350 dancers, apparently, but a lot of commuters joined in as well. Which is nice

I go through Liverpool Street quite often, and can see why they did it at 11.00am. Any other time they'd all have to jump up and down in time, it gets so crowded.

It was thought up by design agency Saatchi & Saatchi.

This is one of my favorite ads of all time. It is very similar, but not real.

Wow. That was absolutely awesome.

The OP video reminded me of this
