Mass Moonwalk for Michael Jackson – London Liverpool St

Twitter, Web 2.0

London 6pm saw thousands gather in a flash mob tribute to Michael Jackson with a mass moonwalk in celebration of the life of a legend. Word spread in the afternoon on Twitter and all over the web just hours before the meet at Liverpool Street Station.

Billy Jean, Thriller and Bad played out in the streets as peoplle danced with white gloves made of A4 paper pointed into the air, hung from lampposts and stood on phoneboxes or any place to get a better view of the party below.

It may not have been as underground and unfettered as flash mobs of old but there was more passion in the crowd than ever. Michael, I hope you were watching.
