Algonquin College Flash Mob video from the Staff BBQ

Posted on Thursday, May 12th, 2011 at 5:33 pm in Announcements Feed for all posts filed under Announcements 

A flash mob broke out at Algonquin College during the year-end meeting and BBQ of over 1,000 employees.  100+ dancers joined together to show their school spirit as they danced to “I Gotta Feeling” by the Black Eyed Peas. These employees practiced for months, in secret, to shock colleagues with their dance moves. Check out the video below, and be sure to share with your friends, colleagues, and family!

    Also – do we not have a “share” button for Facebook? I see a Digg, Twitter but no Facebook? :(

      Good point. We’ll have to look into that. Looks like we’ll have to use the old “Ctrl-C Ctrl-V” method to share the link on FB.
      Thanks Andrea!
