I don't know how long this ad has been on TV but I've only started seeing it the last few days. It's a T-Mobile UK advert, apparently they're not a big player in the UK yet and are trying to get the brand name out there and I certainly think this is one way of doing it. They filmed 300 dancers breaking into dance in London's Liverpool Street station and filmed people's reactions as well. Naturally, most of these reactions involved people whipping out their phones and either recording or calling/texting people about what was happening. I really like the advert myself and being a real musical freak, if people suddenly started doing a synchronised dance around me, I'd be enraptured. It'd be like living the dream! And yes, I would take out my phone and start texting everyone I knew about it.

I saw that a few days ago, from someone linking to it, and it was just too cool! I especially loved how some people seemed to be just innocent onlookers, but were actually dancers as well and started dancing along with the others. I didn't know who to trust! LOL

Yeah, I think I'd get a bit of a start if I was watching the group of dancers in the middle and all of a sudden, people I thought were random bystanders suddenly launched into the routine! I'

I saw that online a week or so ago. It was so cool! And I love how it started with just a few dancers and kept growing!

I love how the two older ladies are getting into the swing of things and one of them starts waving her stick around. Hee! She could take someone's eye out but she's enjoying herself too much to care.

YES! That's my favourite bit of what is an already brilliant ad. I'd love to be a part of something like that sometime, even if it is just as a bystander.

THAT IS SO AWESOME!!!! WHY CAN'T SOMETHING LIKE THAT HAPPEN TO ME WHEN I'M IN MILLENNIUM PARK!!!

I really don't know how to use the camera portion of my cell phone but I'd probably join in the dancing. I've always wanted to live life as a musical with all the singing and dancing.

One of my goals in life is to be involved in a spontaneous musical number on the streets. I long to be in a musical.

That is awesome. The T-Mo ads here in the states are NOTHING like that. Which is sad. I might like them better if they did.
