Carlson School’s holiday ‘flash mob’

Kyle Potter

Impromptu flash mob? Not quite, but University of Minnesota music students brought some holiday cheer to the Carlson School of Management. 


My first thought? High School Musical has come to the University of Minnesota campus.

The video was posted Wednesday, and, as of 12:30 p.m. Friday, had about 8,300 views. So it hasn’t spread like wildfire quite yet, but Christmas is coming – there is time.

The video is making its way around the Internet and social media. Here’s a sample of some reactions from Twitter:

Like @k_karlin tweeted, this isn’t the first time Carlson students have broke out into song and dance on the West Bank. A group of students did the electric slide in the Carlson atrium in April. As you can imagine, significantly less holiday cheer in that particular song and dance. Also, less saxophone.
