To celebrate Grand Central Terminal’s 100th birthday, ImprovEverywhere surprised commuters with a celebration of lights that night. Equipped with a variety of LED flashlights and camera flashes, performers appeared unannounced along three floors of windows, creating a shower of light for the commuters and tourists.
Previously, the group hosted a no pants subway ride in NYC.

Want to be a hero and postpone your exam? Easy. Just start a flash mob.
During an exam at the University of Toronto, a bunch of first year engineering students decided to entertain the class with an impromptu performance.
This is what I call winning first year university. But then again, if you actually studied for the exam, this would have been kind of inconsiderate.
This isn’t just any old flash mob. This, my friend, is an orchestra flash mob. What’s more, it’s a STAR WARS-themed orchestra flash mob. The WDR Symphony Orchestra surprised shoppers with an impromptu performance of the theme song at Wallraf Square in Cologne, Germany. The powerful music incites weepy pride in all Star Wars fans and will probably make you wonder why life can’t offer surprise Star Wars orchestras nearly everyday.
There was so much Lady Gaga hate in Jakarta, Indonesia that the tour date for her Born This Way show was cancelled. In response, a bunch of teen monsters planned several flash mobs that brought Lady Gaga to tears.
The flash mob below took place at EX Plaza Indonesia in Jakarta and it feels like the perfect response to those mobs of people who were vehemently calling her the Mother Monster. It reminds me how much Gaga has done for teens who have gained confidence, not despite their differences, but because of them.
Gaga wrote on Twitter: “This made me cry so hard. This happened in Indonesia yesterday. I love you so much. You are the best fans in the world.”
Watch it here:
Remember Carlton from Fresh Prince of Bel-Air? Of course you do. He’s the lame prepster who wore his pants to high and occasionally indulged by dancing to the song “It’s Not Unusual.”
Now that we’re on the same page, you can watch the most awesome flash mob ever, led by Carlton himself. Alfonso Ribeiro, who played the character, started the “Carlton Dance” at the Universal Studios City Walk in Hollywood before hundreds joined in the awesomeness.
The group was trying to break the record for the most people in North America flash mobbing at the same time, but it’s unclear whether they were successful yet. Other groups performed the exact same dance all over the country.
Of course, they started with the song “It’s Not Unusual.”
Watch it here:
If you think flash mobs are only for young people, you’re totally wrong.
Senior citizens of Lawrence, Kansas danced around to Glee’s cover of “Last Christmas” at their local department store. Wearing festive sweaters, they performed using their strollers and cut-out hearts to charm their fellow shoppers.
At the end of the video you can even see reactions from those in the store. One woman called it “special.” It’s a heart-warming video to watch, especially if you’re away from your grandparents this Christmas season.
