If you’d thought that flash mobs had gone the way of the PS2 you’d be wrong.

The Canberra Flash mob are entering a competition of inner-city hipness and would like your help.

more details on facebook.

But basically turn up at Garema Place and bring a pillow.

Then we can all go to the Phoenix and blog about it on our iPhones.

What about Lingerie Gridiron?

Oh its been done. Shakes head.

Which way is the PS2 going? I checked mine and it hasn’t gone anywhere.

It’s a bad thing because my cute friends probably won’t want to wear lingerie and pigtails in public. If it was a lingerie and pigtails pillow fight, I’d be 100% for it!

OK lingerie in public is not a good idea. What about “very cute” pajamas?

Hey, it’s a public pillow fight! How can this be a bad thing?

If you want to flash mob successfully you have to do something more creative than a pillow fight. Otherwise the passers by are just going to say “oh look, a really pathetic attempt at flash mobbing.”

Still, if I have nothing better to do that day, I’ll be there with my pillow. Sigh.

Sigh… nerds ! But at least they are being nerds for a good cause.

i blame sunrise 7 for making it “news”

It died a death shortly after it started some time in 2003 or 2004 once the social misfits that thought that it made them hip lost interest and moved on to something else.

Flash mobbing is SO 2009!
