Feb. 28 Mission: Keep Austin Clean

Imagine this scene: you are in a park and you see a woman dusting a tree. You glance over your shoulder and spot a man vacuuming a pile of leaves. What the heck is going on?!

Flash Mob Austin is what's going on!

Huge apologies for the delay in posting details about our February mission. We had a great planning meeting and decided on our mission: Keep Austin Clean.

We want this to unfold on February 28th at 12 noon at Waterloo Park (403 E. 15th between Trinity and Red River). We need YOU to be a part of it. It's an easy mission and it's for a good cause.

Here are the deets:
-Dress however you'd like, but the following outfit options would be HILARIOUS:
Mr. Clean

Also bring one cleaning prop of any variety-- the more ridiculous the better:
Rubber gloves
Swiffer, etc

We'll supply the REAL cleaning supplies after the mission so we can really clean that place up afterwards.

Just a note: during Thrill the World, the APD told Alamo Drafthouse that they were wary of us because we're a flash mob group. As a group we had decided back in October to do a charity project to get in Austin's good graces. This is IT. Please join us. It should be hysterical.

Whole Foods hidden camera video

Agent Adams hid a video camera in her bag and attempted to film the freeze at Whole Foods. The quality is a little jacked due to a down conversion, but we hope you can enjoy it anyway!

Give it up for Whole Foods!

Can we just do a quick shout-out to Whole Foods and their Lamar/ Flagship crew? They were such good sports! They could have very easily gotten annoyed and angry and demanded that we leave, but they were super cool with it.

Huge kudos goes out to Whole Foods security, managers, and food staff on the salad bar side of the store. Thanks for not calling the police!

Oh, and thanks so much to those who grabbed some lunch there or bought some groceries after you unfroze!
