Snoopy flash mob: Full costume mob in Christmas dance, Peanuts song a major hit

A Snoopy flash mob that appeared in the middle of New York City this week has people across the U.S. watching and laughing. A full costume mob participated in a now viral Christmas dance video, quite literally going “Peanuts” with the holiday song from the perennial classic, “It’s a Charlie Brown Christmas.” The Inquisitr shares this Saturday, Dec. 22, 2013, this now widespread hit that is dancing its way across the Web.

The Snoopy flash mob demonstrates the ways in which people know how social media can be used to share a cute video idea (like the Peanuts theme music) with millions of people in a very short amount of time. Flash mobs have become a more recent successful hit online, usually with a group of various people coming together to participate in an organized act of fun like a song or dance. The Snoopy supporters show here how to spread the Christmas spirit through their voices and dance moves, much like “It’s a Charlie Brown Christmas” does so every year for people of all ages.

As seen in the viral video here, all those in the Snoopy flash mob could be seen decked up in full costume. Fans can see the classic characters being brought to life in the humorous clip, with Schroeder playing away at his piano, Linus swaying with his blanket, and Snoopy of course being the center of attention doing the “beagle boogie.”

Of course, not all flash mobs are as light and cheery as this one with the Peanuts Christmas song and cast. As cited by one professor of criminal justice at John Jay College:

“They assemble, they do whatever it is that they’re going to do, and then they disassemble in a matter of minutes. By the time somebody recognizes what is happening or is injured, if the police are able to respond, it’s slow.

Fortunately, there was nothing malicious surrounding the lightheartedness of the Snoopy flash mob. If anything, it’ll just be another fond Christmas memory to add to the one created in 1964 by Vince Guaraldi.”
