I don't think it was a flash mob. This was a dance troupe out of Eudora.

Not a dance troupe out of Eudora. That person did the choreography for the flash mob, so that was why her banner was on the truck. Flash mob was promoting the Jayhawk Buddy System. Go to buddy.ku.edu for more info. The students were enthusiastic and had a lot of fun with it. They did a great job!

This group, along with the one a couple of weeks ago at the KU game are great. Good clean fun. I applaud them.

Its hard to have the element of surprise and blurred audience/performer roles of a flash mob during a parade. This isn't a flash mob. Its just an orchestrated group entering through the crowd.

Just another fad from a decaying culture with no substance.

Oh, I don't know about that. When the NYC Opera invades a crowded market and breaks out in a rousing chorus the shoppers (and all those who see the subsequent video) are awed and inspired and shocked from their day to day stupor. To find yourself standing next to just some guy who explodes with an unbelievable voice usually only heard in concert halls is not an insubstantial experience.

Well, the NYC Opera, that's not your typical flash mob scene. Those folks I would more than tolerate.

To those of you leaving rude comments shame on you. The parade is a family friendly FREE event! The group was just trying to have fun and be part of something. Anyone in the community is welcome to register to be part of the parade if you would like to do your own thing. I'm not saying that I liked or dis liked it. But be an adult and keep bad comments to your self!

It would have been even more family friendly if it fell during the school district's spring break this year.
