    I watch this at least once a month, it makes me smile. Did anyone notice there were very few if any over weight people in that train station? It's sad but true, you can't go to any public place in America and see that here.

    That was great. There were probably some dance studio's in there with train passengers mixed in. Thanks for sharing

    I love it. You can see everyone so serious and maybe strained in the the beginning, but as the music starts and the dancers begin the mood changes. So many smiles and joy. I love it.

    Barnbum, Thanks for sharing that was really fun to watch. A nice treat. :) I love that song and the movie.

    Bellaboo, sorry, I don't think I understand your comment. Are you criticizing people for being overweight, or do you just not want the overweight to go to the train station? :?

    Actually Machel, they do!! There are a few "secret" organizations that organize stunts similar to this. :D One is called "Improv Everywhere" & there's another here in SoCal called "GuerilLA" ( http://guerillaimprov.com/ ). I believe they may have held a "cocktail party" in an Ikea store. :wink:
    There's even a worldwide one called "Thrill the World" that loosely organizes people all over the world to dance "Thriller" every year on the last Sunday of October at the same time! http://www.thrilltheworld.com They even have a video so you can learn the dance! :D

    That's too cool!
    Isn't it great with all the hustle and bustle that goes around, people just stop and all the smiles that come out when something like this happens?
    LOVE IT!

    I've just watched it with Hans - I too had seen the other one that Izy mentions, the ad for a mobile phone company. Hans has translated the Dutch - at the top it says Antwerp Station blows the roof off (ie goes crazy) and at the end the VTM etc, is a TV channel, it's an advert for a programme where they audition people to find someone to play Maria in the Sound of Music musical in Belgium. We had a programme on UK TV a while ago to do the same thing.

    I love this, though, even if it is commercial, I'm now sniffing and wet eyed! I think it's because it shows people so happy and smiling and interaccting with each other instead of the usual head down all in their own little worlds? I don't know! Beautiful though!

    Hans has just googled and found out that it took four weeks of preparation, 200 dancers and ten hidden cameras; we also saw interviews afterwards with the passers by, saying how great it was - they really WERE ordinary members of the public!
