Tokyo ”Celebration” is a Flash Mob
Amazing scenes in downtown Tokyo as hundreds of dancers set up a flash mob to mark the release of Madonna’s new record yesterday, September 22.
The surprise event was organised by Sticky & Sweet Tour dancer Takahiro Ueno, who told Splash News he had been preparing the event to mark the launch of “Celebration” for months: “For practice we had just one day because we used more than 150 dancers but I have been preparing it for two months.”
The party got started in the streets of Shinjuku, Tokyo shortly after 2 PM when large speakers began blaring a medley of Madonna hits. A crowd gathered to see what the commotion was before five break dancers appeared on the high-street showing of their moves.
They were followed by a group of five girls in red ballet tutus and leotards. More than a hundred other dancers then appeared out of the crowd and joined in the tightly choreographed routine.
They cleared as Takahiro took centre stage dressed in a black hat, shades and a waistcoat.
The snake-hipped performer moonwalked around the street and performed several sommersaults for the crowd.
A group of drag-queens joined in the rave in the last moments before the entire group left the scene and scattered – leaving bystanders wondering what had just happened. Check out a cool video at Splash News.
