Brit's letting their fun side out!

This is an advert for T-Mobile filmed at London's Liverpool Street Station, a friend emailed me about it. It might have been staged, but what a fantastic way to brighten up the daily commute, I'd have been right in the middle joining in!

Apparently there were a whole load of dancers that mingled with the crowd and started dancing on cue, but there were many people just going about their day that joined in or watched in amazement. Great advertising as it's got folks really talking and the video is making the rounds and a YouTube hit!

There have been a number of these type of public improv things staged all over the place, but this is the first as advert that I know of. Fun.

It's a real feel good thing. Still haven't seen it on telly yet.

Maybe they should do this in all railway stations.

It would be brilliant doing it in airports to cheer everyone up there. What a way to kill time if your flight is delayed.

The rehearsal and the feedback from people at the station is there on You Tube too. Great stuff.

Very fun to watch and I love how lots of people are recording it on their cell phones ... exactly what the commercial was intended to convey I suppose! That is one station I haven't been to. Is it hte new one that does the Eurostar?

Brit' Gal Sarah said...

No that's Waterloo Pam

I used to commute through there every day - but never got to dance once. (Nobody asked ME!).

I posted this on my blog too! I thought it was hysterical and I keep watching it over and over! I love the guy who yells, "Mashed Patata!!"

I've loved you Brits ever since I studied abroad.
