9:30pm Friday, April 13 on TV2

Hosted by comedian Howie Mandel, TV2’s brand new show Mobbed premieres tonight on TV2.

Imagine if you were going about your daily life, and hundreds of people in a choreographed routine ran up and started dancing around you? Then imagine this seemingly spontaneous event culminated in a marriage proposal – to you?

Flash mobs have been appearing all around the world since about 2003. From large groups suddenly converging on department stores, to private dance parties taking over major train stations, these flash mobs are only getting bigger and bigger with the co-ordinated use of text messages, emails, and social networking sites. This new television series, however, takes it to the next level. From reuniting family members who’ve been apart for almost four decades, to telling parents you secretly have a six-year-old son, to attempting to say sorry to the wife and daughter you walked out on, these flash mobs are huge, and have more meaning than the traditional flash mob aim of merely enjoying the look of confusion on bystanders’ faces.

In the first episode of Mobbed, model Nikki’s dreams come true when a flash mob converges on her, and her boyfriend Justin proposes. However, that’s only the beginning of the surprise, when it turns out Nikki’s whole family has been flown out to the event, and Justin is expecting this to turn into a spur-of-the-moment, flash-mob wedding…
