Impromptu

Passengers wait at Bulgarian train station, then flash mob appears to play ‘Mission Impossible’

December 26th, 2019

Flash mob performances are usually funny, entertaining and interesting.

They are mostly well choreographed and artistic. Still, flash mobs are also a nice way to cheer people up, since human connection plays a huge role in our mental health.

No matter what the performance is, they are simply amusing and inspiring, because nothing can bond us like singing, dancing and enjoying ourselves. One can feel happier just by watching a flash mob video and sharing it with friends.

In particular, this flash mob performance played out in the Bulgarian Metro Station in Serdica in 2012.

The video was sponsored by the America for Bulgaria Foundation, an it all happens in a subway station.

People are passing by, standing on the sides or sitting on benches. Some are nervously waiting for the metro, not expecting the performance they’re about to see. Before long, performers bring out their instruments and began tuning up. People start approaching them curiously—and then the magic happens.

The melody begins and it’s obvious from the very first note that they are about to play! It’s the very popular and catchy “Mission: Impossible” theme song. As the show unfolds, more performers come to the stage, carrying their instruments and smiling.

They’re all ready to give an amazing performance—and they enjoy every second of it.

This flash mob brought together an impressive number of musicians.

Trumpeters, violinists, flutists, cellists, drummers—all of them take the stage, dedicating themselves selflessly to warming up people’s nervous emotions. The audience enjoys this performance a lot and everybody seems to love their orchestral music.

The camera shows people in the audience as they all move to the rhythm of the music. In one moment, the camera even focuses on a young girl wearing a Cannibal Corpse T-shirt (who seems to be having a lot of fun)!

It only proves that music has no boundaries and knows no differences. It brings us together and makes us happy.

As one YouTube commenter said, everyone in the train station must’ve felt like a secret agent that day!

Although the comment is funny, it’s completely accurate at the same time. This performance truly spread Mission: Impossible vibes all around—and it definitely provides much-needed optimism and lifts you up.

It would be great if there were more performances like this, because they bring so much joy!

The performers are all smiling, proud to be able to take that subway to a totally different dimension with their music.

Although the performance seemed spontaneous, a lot of effort and hard work went into the execution! This excellent performance required a lot of practice, but in the end, it was definitely worth it. The clip was originally uploaded to YouTube in 2012—and it was also the first orchestral flash mob in Bulgaria! Since it was posted, the video has been viewed more than three million times—and it’s still among the best versions of the”Mission Impossible” song.

Congratulations to these skilled performers! Be sure to check out the performance in the link below:
