Exceptionally hip seniors charm mall with flash mob4/15/2012
We live in a beautiful age where you're never too old for online relevancy or viral fame. This group of retirees practiced an upbeat dance routine for two months before springing it on their local mall in what is probably the most charming flash mob since flash mobs began (circa 2003). So how did the seniors get this whimsical idea? Jessica McKay, the public affairs manager at Ashby Ponds retirement center, explained the concept to seniors and actively recruited participants. "I definitely had to show them some examples on You Tube." McKay says. We suggest she take a tip from Betty White's new show "Off Their Rockers" about prankster seniors and perhaps show them some "Jackass" clips for their next outing.
Would you do a flash mob?
