The Official Coachella Board Lurkers & Members Flash Mob Thread

Using how strong the internet is today, I feel that a flash mob could easily be organized during the Festival.

Objective: Organize enough people to participate in a one time choreographed flash mob/dance/art instillation.

Directions: Everyone participating will nonchalantly meet in a designated area during a specific time. When the clock strikes go we stop what we are doing and commence the mob.

In order for everyone to start exactly at the same time someone will have to initiate a signal of some kind, ie. a whistle.

Why the fuck would we do this? Doing this would not only be written in the history books but would explode heads and make people jizz in their pants. Resulting in mass media coverage, celebratory status, and cash flow. No but really it would just be fucking cool.

Let this thread carve way to ideas and inspiration for the mob.

Check back here for official times, rules, and instructions closer to Coachella.

Time & Location: ?
Location: FRIDAY In front of the Gobi

Time: 3:06 pm

Rules:
1. Everyone must follow specific instructions.
2. If you get shot in the heart or head you must die
3. If you get shot in the leg or arm that part of you is limp or disabled.
4. Everyone must wait for the main guy to shoot, to shoot each other.
5. No real guns allowed or squirt guns, only imaginary guns.
6. Mexican attire is encouraged.

Instructions: ?
Poll is closed and the results are in! The official instructions are:

Mexican Stand-Off

Please watch video for a idea of what this will look like. Pretty much when clock strikes go I will blow a whistle and point my "gun" at someone. From that point everyone will strike their "gun pose" at one another and hold it for at least 20 seconds. When I blow the whistle and shoots my target everyone will follow and chaos will rain. If you get shot, play by the rules and die.

WATCH VIDEO:

Yeah you need to clearly post the day of the festival that this will take place. Next to the time, preferably.

My friend and I were there, waiting for the whistle/pointing to begin. But no one started it!

I saw a few other people who looked like they were waiting for it too.


What happened?

We were there too, waited about 15 minutes, saw others who looked like they were doing the same, but no mob, no flash, no whistle, no fun.
