Может нам такое же организовать в Торонто?


NEW YORK (Reuters) - It's become a case of mob rule in New York.

A growing flash mob craze -- when crowds organized by e-mail turn up in unexpected places -- brought a mob late on Thursday to the flagship Times Square store of Toys "R" Us, where a giant dinosaur roars menacingly at customers.

The mob of some 300 people gazed at the dinosaur, as if transfixed, then fell to the floor screaming and waving their hands in the air. As store staff hurried to call security, the mob dispersed as quickly as it gathered.

The flash mob was the sixth in New York and the latest in a string that has popped up around the globe. Organized by e-mail, recipients are invited to arrive at a certain place, at a certain time, and receive instructions for a particular mobbing event.

On Thursday evening in London, Britain's first flash mob -- a crowd of more than 200 people -- marched to a furniture store selling sofas with instructions to make mobile phone calls in which they praised the merchandise.

The New York-based Mob Project started in June with a man named Bill who sent an e-mail to some friends. Since then, it has spread across the nation and to many cities in Europe.

Europe's first flash mob hit Rome last month when a group gathered at a bookshop and peppered staff with queries about nonexistent books.

At Toys "R" Us in New York, Maria Peters, a tourist from Texas, said: "They just picked me up off the street and gave me directions.

"It was just like a big mind game," she said.

Other New York sites that have been mobbed are Central Park, where the crowd tweeted like birds and crowed like roosters, and a Hyatt Hotel, where the mob burst into applause.

Organizers like to remain anonymous but say the fun of the flash mob is its absurdist, inexplicable nature. However the flash mob could just be a flash in the pan, they say.

A man who seemed suspiciously like an organizer and gave an obviously false name said after the Toys "R" Us event: "Unfortunately all the media coverage, it's going to just destroy the cachet sooner or later.

"You can imagine that the next one or two ... people are not going think its cool, it's not really a happening, it's a media event," he said.

Подумаешь, - ...у нас такое каждую Среду происходит:
Около 8 часов вечера откуда ни возьмись появляется толпа оруще-смеюще-пиво-пьюще-весёлых гопников, оккупирует "Мелки" и делает вид, что "играет в биллиард".
К двум часам ночи - ...эта толпа исчезает также внезапно как и появилась. И никто не знает ни кто они ни откуда они.
Редкие свидетели утверждают, что слышали их пароль: "торонтовка дот ком".

На самом деле можно этим чего то добиваться.

Например толпа в 100 голов приходит к Ситихоллу, голдит что надо Ластмана сбросить. А через 5 минут уйти.
Потом на следующий день прийти в какой нибудь магазин и закидать всё листовками против Ластмана и тут же смыться. Потом пойти к какому нибудь зданию и написать на нём далой Ластмана, и т.д.
Я ничего против Ластмана не имею - это всего лишь пример
