"Do, Re, Mi" in Antwerp Central Station, Belgium

I usually write about serious issues, which is not surprising since my blog is about social issues and human rights. But once in a while, I like to plunge into something light, joyful and inspirational. So here is a video from my native Belgium. It was made in the Antwerp Central (Train) Station on the 23rd of March 2009. Makes me smile every time I watch it.

At 8am, with no warning to the passengers passing through the station, a recording of Julie Andrews singing 'Do, Re, Mi' begins to play on the public address system. As the bemused passengers watch in amazement, some 200 dancers begin to appear from the crowd and the station doors. They created this cheery stunt with just two rehearsals.

  1. Thanks for that, I love it! Wish I'd been there. My favourite characters were the teenaged girl plugging herself into her ipod and the business man shaking his booty at the ATM.
