Here's a Mob, There's a Mob

I feel totally out of the loop as far as reality TV. And I have about 10 reality shows on the roster right now. Some wires must have been crossed, because I had no idea that FOX network picked up a show in March where real life people surprise their loved ones with the Flash Mobbing craze sweeping the world right now. In Mobbed, Host Howie Mandel gives people chances to make big announcements, apologies, etc. to others by a flash mob scene which is documenting from plan to finish. If you are still unfamiliar at what a Flash Mob is, Wikipedia breaks it down as:

"...a group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place to perform an unusual and sometimes seemingly pointless act for a brief time, then disperse, often for the purposes of entertainment, satire, artistic expression or—in some cases—violence."

Maybe you've seen that video of a group of 100 ladies performing Beyonce's Single ladies routine in London or seen that seen of Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis' recent summer flick, "Friends with Benefits". Flash mobs are such a novel idea yet they seem particularly intricate to organize. Mobbed show shouldn't be so surprising, but geesh, they will try to capitalize on everything!

Check this flash mob from about a month ago from Todrick Hall. Makes you want to have your own mob! :)
