Mall Santa Musical

You know how around Christmas time, Santa shows up at the mall and kids get to sit on his lap and tell him what they'd like for Christmas?
Well us adults want to sit on Santa's lap too, you know.

So for our latest Improv Everywhere mission, we broke out into a spontaneous musical at the mall about adults sitting on santa's lap!




We also collaborated with Michael,

The song is so fun that I've been singing it non stop all morning!

( Pssst...my family happened to be at the mall that day and bumped into the musical. You can see my little brother get excited and run into the frame at 3:33 to snap a picture, ha! )

I love your blog! it just gets me inspired and happy, and your ideas are soo brilliant :) I would like to know did the Santa knew about your musical what you made, because Santa started also sing, or was he just artistic Santa Claus? :D sorry if my english isn´t so perfect.. I don't live in English speaking country

That was so much fun! I was surprised when Santa got involved too! Very cool!

Elina said...

(The moment of shock when you see someone else who's Finnish comment here... Also, a present in the first picture looks like the Finnish flag!)

Hey but thanks, this is the Christmas spirit I've been looking for this year! Were you participating too somewhere in front of the camera or just taking sweet photographs? (I'm such a miserable face-recognizer so I wouldn't notice even myself on a video)

Chris said...

That was flippin' awesome. Getting Santa himself involved takes the cake!

On a technical note - I've done these flashmob kind of events in the past and they NEVER sound that good, but I don't have any real organized groups nearby. Did you have mics on all the singers? Speakers set up in the mall? Or was it overdubbed later for the video?

Great stuff!
On a related note I was at a shopping mall here in Halifax Canada, and there were no kids in the line up for Santa - only teenagers/young adults getting their pictures with him. Made me think of your video right away.
