Costco outlet in California’s Santa Cruz saw a celebration atmosphere when a flash mob broke into the shop dancing to a Bollywood number.
The popularity of Bollywood songs are not just confined to India but they are immensely popular in the US, Asia, and Europe as well.
The mob group performed on the song London Thumakda from Kangana Ranaut starrer Queen. The dance group was a part of “Around the world in 80 dances series” and the dance was choreographed by Australian-origin Francesca McMillan.
The performance was so contagious that the shop owners couldn’t hold themselves and joined the dance group. The member of the group danced on the song so enthusiastically that the video was so much loved by the people on social media and went viral.
Another interesting fact about the dance was that the performance was done for a noble cause. It was dedicated to someone who had fully recovered from leukemia.
“The idea to do this began to fulfill a wish of someone celebrating being one year out of leukemia, a parent and friend who loves all things Bollywood. Some drawn by that mission and others purely by the great energy of the song and dance, it grew among friends and beyond, all levels of dancers or non-dancers welcome,” Around the World in 80 Dance wrote in a Facebook post.
“People shared with us more stories of how cancer impacted their lives and how this dance, with the intention behind it, brought them hope and comfort. We all were reminded of the wonder and magic of a true flash mob: that within the mundane and the hard, there still exists ecstatic joy and celebration everywhere, in everyone. Dance and music, from any part of the world, can unite us all in joy,” they added.
The video was first shared on the group’s official YouTube channel. It currently has over 5.67 lakh views. And later, it went viral on the social media platforms.
