Philadelphia flash mob reported on Facebook

    A Facebook user reported a flash mob at the corner of Broad and Fitzwater in Center City Philadephia at about 12:30 this morning:

    “Just witnesses [sic] a flash mob at the gas station at broad and fitz. 8 cars sped down broad, squealed into the gas station and tons of kids in costumes and face masks jumped out and started dancing. I was on a bike and the masks freaked me out, so I rode quickly away.”

    Sounds like it was one of the more garden-variety coordinated flash mobs destined for YouTube, but there is no word yet on the result of the event.
