This You Tube video was shot in downtown York recently. Newspaper article explains why.


Here is a link to the complete video performance. Gee, do you remember Kiki Dee?

Man that's what I call "Dancing the Street". It was so interpretative, good exercise, and exhilarating. I liked it from beginning to end. Some people seems apprehensive; but I'll bet once thy joined in they had great fun.

That was great, Al! How much fun did they have getting that together? Were you in the crowd watching? How much fun was that? It reminds me of the routine that went down in the train station in Belgium that someone posted awhile back, equally captivating. Thanks!

Not sure if that will work, google "crowd dance in Belgium train station"

Oh, and the music. Was so bad during that time, went on a steady jazz diet.

York is not noted for being a hotbed of culture, but has been on the "upswing" recently. Nice to see such enthusiasm in my little old home town.

{No , I wasn't downtown when the video was shot- wished I was, of course].

If you ever see a crowd scene from York, PA --- and see a guy munching on a peppermint pattie, that might be me.

The Antwerpen Belgium video is cool too.

I was disappointed Al, thought everyone would be eating pp's. Maybe it was too hot?

Some Yorkers eat another home town favorite candy called "Dorks".
I don't eat them of course. Not my persona

Loved the dancing marketing. Great idea.

Wish occasionally there would be spontaneous singing and dancing in the middle of downtowns. Don't know how it would affect traffic, though.

This video- [an exclusive on Sploofus ] has generated a lot of interest. Tonight's York Dispatch newspaper article says that about 35000 views on You Tube over the past two weeks! You Sploofusers sure are great promoters of York, PA.
About 2000 hits per day!

Here is a video that goes behind the scenes of this flash mob phenomenon [they credit the AntwerpenBelgium video for the inspiration].

Here is the newspaper article.
