Do Re Mi ... The Joy Of Life

On March 23, 2009 more than 200 dancers performed a promotional stunt for a reality television program in Belgium. The purpose of the reality show is a search for someone to play Maria in the lead role of “The Sound of Music”. The young dancers had only two rehearsals for this act, and the early morning rush hour crowds in the Central Station of Antwerp were not prepared for what they saw. After a few minutes, many of the spectators joined in. I think I would have too. Talk about the joy of life. If you haven't seen this video yet, I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I do.

I think we should all do that on the way to work tomorrow. Just stop our cars in rush hour traffic get out and start dancing and singing.

I'll post your bail, Cedar!
That was great. I can't believe how many of the spectators looked so shocked. LOL It looked like an episode of that old tv show "Fame".

I've seen this sort of thing in other train stations, to different music and it never fails to make me smile. Thanks for sharing. And I think we should all post Cedar's bail.

That's what I need this morning. Commuting by car makes it a bit less likely, hwoever.

Dancing ... the joy of being alive!

Deb said...

I love the video! my daughter is a dancer I appreciate all the work that goes into a performance

Paula Slade said...

This is just wonderful! It seems since T-Mobile recorded their advert

this has turned into a craze of sorts and it is delightful!

Cedar, you could start a new fad. Just think of the headlines, Seattle Woman Stops Traffic! :-)

Lovelyprism, I think if I were there, I would have joined in as well.

MissNobody, wouldn't that be tons of fun? I love it!

Hilary, I have never seen this before. Maybe I can organize one here in Vancouver. :-)

Patricia, doesn't it look like an absolute hoot!?

White Crow, posting bail? It means getting someone out of jail. *heh*

Butler and Bagman, we have the occasional bus drivers here who like to sing. Maybe everyone else should join in.

PhilipH, yes, can't you just feel the joy in that video? I love it.

Deb, and those kids only had two rehearsals, can you imagine!?

Paula, I think people like things that make them happy, and this does the trick. :-)

me, myself, I said...

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this ! Thanks for sharing ^_^
