The Lifemark Flash Mob Surprises Shoppers!

The Lifemark Flash Mob Surprises Shoppers!

The Lifemark Flash Mob: The World’s Oldest Flash Mob surprised shoppers and office workers today with their debut performance outside the Westfield Shopping Centre in downtown Auckland.

The Lifemark Flash Mob featured 80 senior citizens aged between 65 and 96 years old dancing to a hip hop song. The Lifemark Flash Mob was established to raise awareness of the Lifemark brand and the aging population.

Many members of the Lifemark Flash Mob are deaf and quite a few are either blind, partially sighted and/or use some form of mobility aid such as a zimmer-frame, wheelchair or walking stick. The average age is 79 years old and the gender mix includes 13 men and 67 women. All Flash Mob members are from Waiheke Island.
