I’ve just been sent a link to what I believe is an almost undiscovered land within YouTube, well, by undiscovered I mean I’ve never seen it (have you guys??) and for an official YouTube run channel, it’s clearly almost non existent with only 60,000 views since going live back in December 2009.

Take a good look at this Flash Mob created by Malibu in NYC and then pause for a moment of silence, because that might just be the last promotional flash mob you’ll ever see! Don’t get me wrong, I think flash mobs were pretty cool in 2008 and even early 2009, the 10 or so [...]
