Here's five minutes of fun entertainment, courtesy of a Moscow flash mob

Puttin' on the Ritz

I was browsing through Youtube earlier today, April 6th, when I came across a video of a flash mob performing on the cold streets of Moscow, and I thought it would be a good thing to share with my wiklinut friends. Flash mob entertainment seems to be sweeping the globe these days, as people in many countries get together to perform street entertainment. Sit back, relax, and take a look at these good Russian folks having a rollicking good time dancing to the great Cole Porter's song, Puttin' on the Ritz.

As I said in my comment to cnwriter, flash mobs are wonderful exercises in people coming together as family to enjoy each others' company and love.

Puttin' on the Ritz was written my Irving Berlin (a Russian Jew), not Cole Porter.

This was no flash mob. The number was choreographed, costumed, made use of props (brooms), and professionally filmed (notice the camera crane used for overhead shots).

The area they used wasn't the "streets of Moscow", but an open plaza. My guess is that this was performed by a musical theater cast and was done as part of a "reality" television program. It would be nice to know. But it was no flash mob.
