Viral Video Thursday: Star Wars Flashmob

As an SEO I always love Flash mobs, especially these ones that play out like the video above, since they remind me of scenes that play out in site traffic.

In this flash mob, 2 people start off playing a great version of the Star Wars main theme, which builds into a gigantic orchestra attended by hundreds of onlookers, whose numbers increase exponentially as the concert continues.This type of viral activity reminds me of the behavior and trends you can see in the Google Analytics traffic of a website that has released a popular piece of content. A few initial sources send traffic, and then boom, it takes off with viewers pouring in exponentially.

Anyway, an awesome video that brightened my day, and reminds me to go out and buy that Boba Fett costume that I want to wear daily for Halloween.
