Flash Mob II - Ed's journal
Flash Mob II
OK, so you may have encountered the concept of the 'flash mob', in which a bunch of random people gather somewhere, and all go and do something at once, before disappearing.

However I kinda had this idea, for the Mark II flash mob. You get a bunch of LARP/Renactor types, to do some homework on a venue. Maybe the weekend before you do a recon mission to visit the place?

But then, you all show up in 'period gear' and ... just be nice to everyone, and helpful if you can (and at no point claim to be an sort of member of staff or anything).
Example venues might be stately homes, castles... well, whatever really.

I presume you've seen Improv Everywhere, particularly Best Buy?

Yes. You should examine Improv Everywhere. Although not all of their missions can be described as helpful...
