You get used to seeing some crazy things in New York. Flash mobs aren’t what they used to be – especially when you’ve seen Santacon before. But I have to admit I’d be pretty freaked out if I saw a bunch of Star Wars characters acting out in Times Square. Most of the people there are tourists so they probably don’t get to see all the “normal” crazies of the city; I can imagine them freaking out to seeing such a large flash mob like this.
Of course, this was professionally staged to help promote the game, Star Wars: The Old Republic (Warning: Flash enabled site).
