A Spanish Flash Mob and the Best Coin Ever Spent



This is a slick commercial for Banco De Sabadell that builds on the highly popular flash-mob, or "random acts of culture" phenomenon.  But because of the obvious joy it gave those present, along with its viral popularity on the Internet, the commercial source in no way diminishes this wonderful performance that took place in the Pla├ža de Sant Roc in Sabadell, Spain.  More than 100 musicians and singers performed "Ode to Joy," the Fourth Movement of Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 in D minor, Op. 125.

Oh for more commercialism like this!  It's a gem you can enjoy again and again.
