Springtime means more sun, birds in the trees, and of course, the beginning of Michael Jackson flash mob season. It’s been years now since Michael Jackson passed away, but MJ still inspires mobs of people from around the world to get together in public places and dance. (Yee-hee!) Here are 10 Michael Jackson flash mobs:


Stockholm – July 2009

Then the cops told them to beat it.


Philippines – April 2010

Billy Jean is not my lover, but she is the one who tells me when flash mobs are occurring.


Hollywood – March 2010

Go Old Dude! In the Head Band! Go go go!


Moscow – June 2010

If I was in Russia and heard a bunch of gunshots, I wouldn’t immediately assume a Michael Jackson flash mob was starting.


Atlantic Station – June 2011

Someone better beat it over to the PA system and boost that volume.


San Diego – June 2011

Day-Glo Zombies are somehow not that intimidating.


Bay Area – August 2011

They’re pretty smooth. Not smooth criminal smooth, but smooth.


Pennsylvania – September 2011

Leave it to Cirque du Soleil to throw a weird f***ing flash mob.


Coventry University – March 2012

I have blamed it on the boogie many times.


Hungary – March 2012

It doesn’t matter if you’re black or white, but most of the participants will chose white.
