Nothing like a little flash mob goodness, courtesy of this T-Mobile viral video. The ladies in this holiday number get their Magenta on in a mall somewhere outside Chicago. And look! You can even see the familiar face of the Tmo spokeschick among the crowd.
It’s curious, given how good the audio is, that there are no visible microphone packs, and none of the ladies are breathing hard, despite running throughout this mall. Add the aerial cutaways, and you start to wonder if this is a real flash mob or a staged fake. But who cares? It’s entertaining, and a testament to the power of production value: This performance, to the tune of “(There’s No Place Like) Home For The Holidays,” was produced by director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon and musical director Paul Mirkovich.
Pure joy, and no schmaltzy odes to reindeer or hard-sells trying to hawk products. I call it a win. So sit back, hit play and let the ladies of T-Mobile serenade you. Enjoy!
