T-Mobile Trafalgar Square Karaoke 'Flash Mob'

T-Mobile have been making their latest 'Life's For Sharing' ad in Trafalgar Square in central London. Hot on the heels of the dancing flash mob at Liverpool St station, thousands of people attended Trafalgar Square tonight to take part in the filming of the new T-Mobile ad - Flash mob karaoke.

The event was basically a giant karaoke hosted by Vernon Kaye and including a mass crowd in 'the making of' video is a great way of creating buzz and anticipation for a TV commercial before it airs.

And a bit of 'Amarillo' too:
