Trying to figure out who started the college flash mob. And who does the best “Gangham Style”
After years of pep rallies and cheerleading, colleges have found a new way to pump up the volume in their cheer sections thanks to a new streak of entertainment: flash mobs.
The trend took off after Ohio State University students decided to take the floor following months of practice to the tune of Glee’s Don’t Stop Believin’ in 2010. The recorded stint soon went viral with over 4 million views. The event was organized by a variety of students and faculty including 2011 alumi Luc Nutter and Jordan Davis, and assistant vice president for student life, Tracy Stuck.
