A company called "Soul Electronics" wants people from Jacksonville who will be attending the Jets vs. Jaguars game at EverBank Field to participate in a flash mob, because Tim Tebow is in town.
I was alerted to the embedded video above on Twitter, which is apparently a routine for a planned "flash mob" outside of EverBank Field near Touchdown, the Jacksonville Jaguars statue. I was under the impression that flash mobs stopped being a "thing" about two years ago, but I guess a company called Soul Electronics didn't get that memo.
For those who are unfamiliar with a flash mob, it is as follows, defined by Wikipedia:
A flash mob (or flashmob) is a group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual and seemingly pointless act for a brief time, then quickly disperse, often for the purposes of entertainment, satire, and artistic expression. Flash mobs are organized via telecommunications, social media, or viral emails
So, why does Soul Electronics want you to participate in a flash mob? Well, according to the about section of their YouTube video, the New York Jets will be playing and Tim Tebow is the quarterback. Tebow is affiliated with Soul Electronics.
So there you have it. A company wants to organize people in Jacksonville to form a flash mob for the opposing team's quarterback outside the stadium at noon before kickoff. Not only is this going to be incredibly obnoxious trying to get into the stadium, but it's also kind of a slap in the face.
