Perhaps some of you have already seen this.  So beautiful it brought me to tears.

Flash mob in the Copenhagen Metro. Copenhagen Phil playing Peer Gynt.

Lovely, really beautiful, thank you for posting!

The only slightly depressing thing is that the first thing all the teenagers on that train do is to whip out their mobiles and start filming. They can't stare in wide eyed amazement like the little kids or tear up with emotion like the older people or just shut their eyes and enjoy the music. It's a shame that there's a generation more bothered about showing off to their friends about being somewhere than actually enjoying the experience.

Saw the same thing when a bunch of students were meeting the president in the US the other day. Half the people in front of him were more interested in staring at the iPhone screen while filming than actually shaking his hand! crazy and sad.

Yes, I know what you mean Microbius.  I'd love to see my teenage nephew just 'be' in the moment rather than always thinking he has to involve a gadget in every experience, and I hate the invasiveness of mobile phones.

OTOH, if he brought home a film like this, a part of me would feel glad that he saw it as something of value to keep and share.  Your president story is a strange thing to read though... as if it's only really happening if it's on a screen.  Reality turned upside down...

Last  year there was a silly sitcom in the UK I only saw one episode of, and the only bit of that I remember was a group of people on a long hike, and the leader was describing the fantastic view in front of them, and the others were photographing the view and emailling the pics to each other and 'ooohing' over the photos - the only bit I thought was funny in the whole prog, but in a sad way.

But thanks for sharing the flashmob video, which I hadn't seen.
I was amazed at how well they could film it, (and the sound was incredibly good) given the totally random bunch of people who'd come into the carriage with the musicians, though some might have been done on an iPhone or such.

I don't think the sound was real. Am I the only one suspecting this?

No, I'm sure the sound was dubbed on afterwards, far too good to be live. No doubt they were really playing though!
