The Story Behind Gangnam Style Flash Mob at Knotts Scary Farm
A flash mob is a group of people who assemble seemingly suddenly in a place and perform a dance, an act, or some kind of number and then disperse. Though our mob numbers were low, the spontaneity of the event at Knotts Scary Farm one night captured the flash mob spirit – Gangnam Style.
