Flashmob Moscow (Russia) : Putting on the Ritz

 

Of all the “Flash Mob” videos I’ve watched, I think this is STILL my favorite.
The weather is so miserable and gray and wet and cold and  yet those sturdy,
wonderful (Russian) folk smile and create a GOOD TIME.  A really GOOD TIME. I love it.  Today is rainy and drizzly (but muggy rather than cold) here in my home.  Hand Springs would make nice muddy splashes!!
Flashmob Moscow (Russia) : Putting on the Ritz 2012
Hundreds of dancers joined together in Moscow on 26.02.2012 to perform together a great flashmob of “Puttin’ on the Ritz”, a popular song written and published in 1929 by Irving Berlin, and introduced by Harry Richman in the musical film Puttin’ on the Ritz (1930). The title derives from the slang expression “putting on the Ritz” meaning to dress very fashionably. The expression was inspired by the swanky Ritz Hotel.
