Flash Raves: Surprisingly Kind of Joyous and Cool

December 11, 2009

I learned about this from a friend on Facebook, who linked to a story about it by the Fayetteville Flyer, an alternative (weekly, I think) newspaper from my college town.

It seems that this past weekend some kids at the school, the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville, organized a “flash rave” to be held in the Student Union at 11pm.

Now, this sort of thing is nothing new. “Flash mobs” have been around for some time now. But I couldn’t help from smiling at the YouTube video of this event.

Here’s a little viewing guide, in case you don’t want to watch the whole thing:

  • Watch the first 30 seconds or so, just so you’re not jumping in in medias res.
  • Then skip to the one-minute mark (which is when it kind of kicks off) and watch for about 10 seconds.
  • Then skip to the 1:55 mark and watch until you see something inexplicable and awesome. You’ll know.

Happy weekend and winter, everybody:
