Glee-ful "Safety Dance" flash mob on the 16th Street Mall

Don't know if the pranksters who congregated on the 16th Street Mall over the weekend constitute a flash mob. "Flash large grouping" is more like it. Still, they managed to take shoppers by storm with a routine for "Safety Dance," a tune originally performed by '80s staples Men Without Hats but recently remade for a flash-mob segment of Glee. Life imitates art once again. Look below to see a clip of the entire flashy moment.
