This was definitely one of my more unique ideas.
There's an awesome place here in Glendale called 3DRetro - they sell really cute, pretty, scary, and nerdy action figures. Not that long ago, they held an event to celebrate the release of a Rick and Morty figure by Kidrobot, and the day before the event they invited a painter to put this crazy Rick and Morty mural on the wall outside the building. I attended the event, and when I saw that mural, I knew I had to shoot a dance video in front of it!
Problem was, I didn't take Poonam for much a Rick and Morty fan, so I just let the idea sort of fade away. Until another crazy idea dawned on me - what if we didn't just do a dance video, but we invited the public to do a full-on dance flash mob!
Granted, it wouldn't EXACTLY be a flash mob, where we would come out of nowhere and surprise everyone. After all, we needed permission from the store. Instead, I thought Poonam could come up with really simple choreography that anyone could do, put it online, and see who shows up! I asked 3DRetro, the music artist who did the remix (Chetreo), and Poonam about the idea, and they were all about it.
I put a Facebook event online inviting people to join us and dance. The event had around 100 marked as "interested" but very few "goings." So I had no idea how many people would come. In the end, it was only a few, but it was enough to put something together that was pretty fun.
I hope you guys enjoy it!
