Seevic students take part in a flashmob at Benfleet campus

Echo: VIDEO: Seevic flashmob VIDEO: Seevic flashmob

ONE hundred confused students found themselves embroiled in a flashmob at a college during their lunch hour.

Seevic College’s Student Association dragged fellow students into the middle of chillout area The Hub to perform a dance routine to chart topper Happy by Pharrell Williams.

The stunt at the Benfleet campus in Kiln Road was to raise awareness of the student association – a group of five executive members elected by their peers to improve the student experience.

The decision to blast music out in front of two hundred spectators was to highlight the recent purchase of a jukebox which raises cash to put back into the student association.

I think it was very good considering a lot of those in the Flash Mob Group have learning difficulties like my son who has Autism & Adhd.
How many of you would have the guts to do this???
We need more of this positive action & less negativity.

Good on 'em!! Know I wouldn't have had the confidence to get up in front of a massive group of people! Especially if some do have special needs / learning difficulties then that's even more admirable

it was invented by Racing Jockey Slim Boy Fat in 1956 in California (Thats The USA), some dancers just started doing a crazy dance outside a Cinema much to the amazement and dare i say befuddlement of passers by, its called Guerilla style filming, shortly after many copied it, inc big named companys to advertise things like Toilet Duck or Mars bars, train stations, airports and jails have also been know to be used.
Its been a popular craze across the world since 1957, with many getting in on the act, However one big brass band tried it in Times square but everyone ignored them so they went home.

thanks for the enlightenment..... if something qualifies as a 'popular craze' it's generally best avoided, for reasons of either looking stupid, or preservation of life, in my humble opinion.... this would appear to qualify as the former

I suppose we shouldn't criticise them for doing something constructive, and I expect all concerned enjoyed themselves.
It might have been better if they could have come up with something which hasn't been done so many times, that it's rather "old hat"
