freeze and dance like me

One of the best videos of 2008 was the Grand Central Station Freeze, where hundreds of people walking through the station froze, on the exact same moment, no matter what they were doing. Everyone else around them was completely shocked and had no idea what to do.

So, of course some company should have taken this idea and ran with it, and T-Mobile was the first to do so.

They shot a commercial at the Liverpool Street Station in London on Thursday, which involved almost the same idea. At one point, music came blasting over the system, and a group of people started doing a choreographed dance throughout the crowds. It's pretty cool, so take a look.

I love how it seems like more and more people got into it. I'm not sure if the assigned people just started gathering, or if random people caught on, or maybe a little bit of both, but either way, it looks like a movie.

I've always wanted to be a part, or at least witness, something like this. I always thought it was so fiction-ary, but clearly it's not! Even the old people join in!

T-Mobile, Bravo! It's about time someone took advantage of that amazing idea.
