Yankee Candle Mob Dance

Share Button

The Yankee Candle Flagship Store (and their corporate offices) are located just 15 minutes north of us.  The story of Yankee Candle is inspiring whether you have entrepreneurial tendencies or not.  Steve & I are big fans of the store not only because we love their products but we love just walking through the store – watching and observing (I know -we’re a barrel of fun on a Saturday night, aren’t we?).

This morning one of J2’s baseball coaches sent along a link to a video that his son wrote, sung, directed, choreographed, and produced.  Tyler is also featured front and center in most of the video.  Producing a piece like this is no small feat and Tyler did a great job.

If you are like me, then the concept of a “mob dance” was not something I was familiar with until this morning.  In doing a little research, I found out this:  A “flash mob” occurs when groups of people come together for a spontaneous demonstration after an alert is sent out through a social network, such as Facebook or Twitter.  Obviously this video was pre-planned and not organized via any social media platform but I still love it.

How much fun would it be for a mob dance to erupt in our warehouse??

    That was fantastic and so entertaining! His demographics made it a classic. If you get a chance, check out Oprah’s Flash Mob dance (you can find it through google) – last Fall, 20,000 people danced for her season premiere on the streets of Chicago. It’s really a fun video to watch.

    PS. I love Yankee Candles – thanks for sharing!

    Mob dance in your warehouse? perhaps that hasn’t happened yet, but Mob knits have happened – where alerts get sent out on the social “knitwork,” Ravelry, and we all show up for a Mob knit. I consider my Superbowl Sunday visit of a year ago one such visit.

    I’m sure we could get a mob dance to erupt in the warehouse. Web’s deals make me want to dance!
