News In Detailed
Recently, a group of people at a Costco outlet in Santa Cruz, California surprised shoppers by abruptly dancing to one of Bollywood’s most famous numbers ‘London Thumakda’ from Kangana Ranaut‘s film Queen.
A video of the flash mob dancing in a supermarket went viral on social media. The name of the group is ‘Around The World In 80 Dances.’ The video was shared on their Youtube channel and in no time it went viral and now has more than 3 lakh views. It starts with a group of regular people just shopping when suddenly the music starts and the crew comes out and makes a formation and starts dancing energetically. This led to the customers to take out their phones and capture this impromptu moment which is not often witnessed. When the cameras were pointed at the viewers, you can only see smiles on their faces. Towards the end, the dancers dragged the customers as well to dance along with them.
“The motive was to fulfill a wish of someone who was celebrating being one-year Leukemia free, a mother and friend who loves all things Bollywood. So we started organising to surprise her and celebrate anyone who has beaten Leukemia or cancer. As the song was so great, the group just grew and grew like wildfire, people who just wanted to join in the dance! We wanted to make it very inclusive of all who wanted to be involved, didn’t have to be pro dancers. Less of a performance and more of a pop-up celebration, to spread light and joy. And Costco was very accommodating and helpful.”
