Dr Mumbo

Tubby travel agents, jumping up and down

flash mob harvey world travelBranded flash mobs are not, as regular readers may recall, something to be encouraged.

So when Dr Mumbo received an email about a flash mob organised by Harvey World Travel, he was not optimistic.

Apparently the 500 Aussie and NZ delegates to the event in Auckland had “secretly learned a dance routine”.

Secret from whom is something of a puzzle to Dr Mumbo, as he can’t see more than 10 or so people watching.

The other puzzle is where the cheering – and indeed whooping – is coming from on the video. Particularly as it goes on long after the crowd has dispersed.

A cynic would think a recording of a much larger crowd had been added in post-production. But Dr Mumbo is not that cynic. Oh no.
