A man in Perth, Australia, recently shocked commuters when he started a flash mob dancing to ‘I Feel Good’ by James Brown. Other train goers can even be seen joining in while Peter Sharp, the man responsible for the flash mob, encourages more to do so.
Peter Sharp stated:
“It occurred on a Saturday at around 11am. Around eight friends and I met at the train station and I debriefed them as to what and how we were about to start a dance party on the train.
“I asked them to wait at the station whilst I took the train to the next station. When I entered the following train with all of my friends already seated it made the entire situation more realistic.
“As for the reactions, we were totally blown away by how instantly people started to smile, laugh and get involved. As we arrived at the following stations people instantly got involved with the fun, there was very little resistance to this experience occurring.
“I admit, yes it required around eight friends to already know what was coming but once that ice was broken, the rest of the public were more than happy to get involved. This highlights some interesting questions about the social norm which we collectively choose to live inside of”.
