The World's Saddest Flash Mob Happened at Market Days Last Weekend

By Chuck Sudo in Arts & Entertainment on Aug 16, 2011 3:00PM

A strange thing happened during North Halsted Market Days last weekend: a flash mob broke out, organized by the Darren Criss Street Team.

Having only watched the series premiere of Glee we had to acquaint ourselves with Darren Criss and he seems like a nice enough guy. This video shows a few things.

  1. Not everything should be a flash mob.
  2. Glee fans sure are a type.
  3. Even gays can be confused by an impromptu breakout of song and dance.

You watch the video waiting for something worse to happen, but it doesn't. The link to this youtube video promises Criss's street team will post a "better version" of this video.
