Choral Flashmob At UBE In Greenville

Shoppers at the University Book Exchange in Greenville got a pirate themed surprise Saturday morning.

As students shopped a choral flash mob broke out right in the middle of the store.

Members of the Greenville Choral Society burst into song. They sang the Pirate Anthem.

The owner of the UBE, Don Edwards, says, "We just had a random act of culture. People are so full of pirate pride they just can't help but burst out and sing a song."

    I was one of the lucky ones who got to sing- it was great fun. Thanks to Don Edwards neat idea it was a joyeous experience for those who were there. For those people unhappy with their "lot in life" try a little music.

    exactly WHAT is it that these ecu pirates are so proud of? so far as i can tell, colleges are where you pay loads of money, cant even park near them--ECU of all places is the least helpful, least friendly school ive ever worked with. but if someone gives me a true reason to be proud of this school, do let me know.

    A flash mob with sheet music? That's laughable. It'sd riduculous to call it a random act of culture. Flash mobs aren't random, someone plans them.

    I thought a "flashmob" usually had more than 3 people? Kinda lame.

      The rest of the chorus was scattered through out the store. difficult to video under those conditions but the music was great.
