Can we formally put out a name to finish all flash mobs now?
Yesterday, Twitter headquarters hosted that group phenom that continues to destroy humankind with its twee, treasured and now sadly predictable results — the flash mob is that this decade’s Macarena. And it must cease.
You possibly can see from the video, above, that the Twitter flash mob began throughout lunch hour, the place lots of of harmless Twitter bystanders, attempting to take pleasure in their presumably grass-fed burgers and natural sodas, had been besieged with the horror of the Mob. Worse but? It was to Justin Bieber’s “Child.” I don’t learn about you, however nothing on this world will get me as psyched for one more lengthy afternoon in entrance of the pc deciphering code and prepping nugatory studies for pointless conferences than an 18-year-old attempting to woo the women.
Additionally, you will discover the lots of of different non-participating Twitter staff, with these horrified, awkward smiles frozen on their faces. These appears to be like say, “I ought to’ve went to Burger King. I ought to’ve went to Burger King.”
With its invitation to “Be a part of the Flock,” the video was an try at recruiting new our bodies, by, ahem, exhibiting good, younger children simply how enjoyable Twitter’s office is. For snort, read the comments on YouTube: “The start jogged my memory of a jail cafeteria besides every1 had common garments on” is a very astute one.
Actually, Twitter? We don’t learn about you, however lunchtime is one in every of the few instances throughout the workday the place we don’t must be all like, “Yeah! Work!” Flash mobs are mildly annoying at greatest, excruciating at the worst. And now you, like the Bieb, have ruined our lunch.
