Mad props to these kids - it's so great to see so many elementary and high school kids from 17 different schools participating in an anti-bullying event (thus the pink shirts and skate laces). I love the song too, lol. This is at a Vancouver Giants (minor league) hockey game, and was covered on the national news.

Acceptance Flash Mob

ETA: for those who don't want to click on a youtube link, the entire upper section of one side of the arena participated. It started with two girls with pink anti-bullying tshirts on dancing to the tune of You Don't Know You're Beautiful by One Drection. All the other kids had jackets on, then threw them off to reveal their pink shirts and do coreographed actions for the entire song. They rocked it!!

Very cool. I love how more and more kids kept joining in. And the adults in the stands who joined in.

i love a good 'flash mob' and that so many kids can get behind an anti-bullying event.

i do find it ironic that it's for 'acceptance' and they are all dressed the same and doing the same dance...!?

The only problem with this video is that after I watched it I was then sucked into the YouTube Vortex... you know, all those suggestions over on the right side. I love the Hallelujah Chorus in the shopping mall.

How have I not heard about this?!!! A hockey flashmob in my own city and I missed it!

Fantastic job by all those kids!

Awesome to see the Giants get behind it too!

Mostly it's just a silly message board. Except when it isn't.
