29 May 2010 – I am proud to say that I have taken part in the largestmoving flash mob in Singapore! It involved a total of 400 participants, all who moved to create an anti-smoking awareness and to celebrate World No Tobacco Day (31 May 2010).
“A flash mob is a large group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place an unusual and pointless act for a brief time before quickly dispersing, leaving unsuspecting by standers bewildered and surprised.”
Inspired by Improv Everywhere’s Mp3 experiment, Breathe, in partnership with Mediacorp 987FM, organised Singapore’s first Great Audio Experience.
It started at 3 key locations along Orchard Road – The Heeren, The OC and SMU and rallied in a moving flash mob all the way to Plaza Singapura.
Participants were given free radioheadsets, which we used to tune in to 987FM and follow the instructions directed by the Voice (who was truly Mister Young).
My friends and I kicked it off at The OC and I was giving live updates via Twitter about what was going on and what we were doing!
We were lucky that it didn’t rain, the beautiful sun was out but Singapore was as humid as ever on that day and it didn’t help that I had 2 layers of clothes on (a dress and a t-shirt over it)!
There were live band and dance performances at Plaza Singapura and the turn out was great! Thank you to everyone for participating and big ups to those who followed me on Twitter to get the updates. Hope you guys had fun!
