Video: CPR Flash Mob

I only thought Flash Mobs surprised flustered mall visitors with Christmas carols. Turns out Flash Mobs are also teaching equally bewildered fair goes and mall visitors to push hard and push fast. To both my surprise and general relief I have yet to be caught in the midst of a Flash Mob. How about you?

First CPR flash mob movie I found.

The best behind the scenes flash mob footage. Reassuring to know practice is involved. Unfortunately I can’t find the actual flash mob performance.

A flash mob that might have considered picking a more crowded location.

Be wary of a flash mob if you see lots of people with the same shopping bag.

Having taught lots of CPR classes I caution flash mobs about choosing attire other than scoop neck shirts and low rise pants.

I think a little viewer education about what is happening might be a good addition to the CPR flash mob.
