Ever heard this term?
Well, a flash mob is, by definition, a large group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual action for a brief time, then quickly disperse.
Now the key words in the definition above are LARGE, SUDDENLY, and UNUSUAL !
These things are of course all pre-planned and normally kicked off via social media or viral emails.
