So we got up at the crack of dawn and went into work at 6.15 for the recreation of the flash mob event as mentioned in previous posts.
However that's not what it turned out to be which was a bit disappointing.
The TV show, Canada AM, was there and it was interesting to see them go back and forwards between the live feed and the studio where the rest of the program was coming from.
We expected the same situation to be re-created with the singers dispersed among the crowd and to begin singing as before.
That's the reason I wanted to go.
But instead they were performing as a choir and after sitting around waiting for a couple of hours we were told that they would actually perform at 8.50 a.m.
That's 10 minutes before the end of the show.
Why did they tell us to be there at 6.15 then?
With hundreds of people there we had to fight for a space to see and in the end we were lined up against a wall and could only see the backs of those in the choir.
So it was actually a bit of a bust.
I did record it and saw myself on TV when I got home.
Every time a camera pointed in our direction we waved like a couple of maniacs and it was pretty embarrassing to watch.
I deleted the evidence pronto.
This YouTube video is what the local cable TV station ran about the event.
If you scan the people around the perimeter you might see me.
Other than that as I say it was a total let down and by 2 p.m. I was ready for my bed and feeling very cranky at work.
We'd gotten up at 5 after all.
The original video goes from strength to strength on YouTube tho.
