The Day We All Stood Still

More details here: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=40294613371

If you haven’t seen a “freeze” performed before, check this out first:

To celebrate the release of the film “The Day the Earth Stood Still” We are going to freeze in place at the exact same moment in the lobby of the movie theater located here: http://tinyurl.com/554xuj (Edwards Imax).

We will meet in the small parking lot behind Cafe Adobe and next to Todai at 7:15. To get there, park in the parking garage and go to the first floor. You’ll see Todai. Look for the small parking lot by it.

So again:

Where: http://tinyurl.com/554xuj (Edwards Imax) at the Todai parking lot by the parking garage behind Cafe Adobe.

When: December 20th, 7:15pm

Invite your friends and we’ll see you there!!

UPDATE:

 I was hoping someone would be willing and able to make a sign or two for the event. Here are the signs:

“The Day We All Stood Still”

“Starring: Keanu Freeze”

“www.RiotHouston.com
Google Houston Flashmob”

Sign details:
Black marker on white posterboard or poster sized card stock

Design:
It’s up to you! Just make sure it’s legible, not confusing, and goes with the event.
My .02: I think it would be great to incorporate the old school robot from the original film in the first sign somehow. I’m thinkin’ the laser beam coming out of his visor on a huge group or something.

Purpose: 
Three people will stand in the middle of the freeze side by side holding the signs for all to see.

That’s it! Three signs. No more, no less. Feel free to contact me:

Look forward to seeing you Saturday!

Zombies VS Humans photos and more!

We had a GREAT time at the Zombies VS Humans event on August 30th. We had approximately 30 people come to event in full zombie and defending human gear. The zombie makeup that some of the flashmobbers showed up was amazing. This is how the zombie attack went down:

We started about halfway between the Sam Houston statue and water fountains. There were two groups, one on each side. Each group was chased by the zombies and defended themselves with their fierce water guns. We all ended up at the fountains at the end of the pond. The zombies surrounded the humans and almost over took us. After a brief truce was called and the humans realized the zombies just wanted hugs, we all hugged than sang “Why Can’t We Be Friends”. At which time the zombies quickly turned upon the singing humans and tore them to shreds in an act of total backstabbery.

All in all we had a really good time and the people hanging out in the parked seemed really confused and enamored at the same time. It was fantastic.

I hope you enjoy the pictures. I want to thank James (Http://www.Twitter.com/crossmage) for taking photos. We’ll be editing a video as well and have it up soon. Be sure to check out the t-shirts that were inspired by the event below as well.

See you at the next event!!

I’d also like to answer some reoccurring questions:
1: No, people will not being having their clothing “totally torn off”.

Beta: Only people who wish to become a zombie during the event will be converted

Three: Zombies don’t need to have any particular make-up or special clothing. Just look funky and act like a zombie ;).

Finally, when everyone arrives there will be the full set of instructions before the event beings. Plus, a super secret surprise ending!

New Event – August 30th, 2008 “Zombies Vs. Humans”

This is going to be a really fun and exciting Flashmob!

Where: We will meet at the Sam Houston Statue in Herman Park: http://tinyurl.com/6ayv4q

When: 2:00pm – 3:00pm
What:

We’ll be filling everyone in when we all arrive.

If you are going to be a “human” for this event you need to know this up front: Put a strip of duct tape on the front and back of your shirt if you are ok with the Zombies tearing your clothing apart. Oh yes, I said tearing your clothing apart. We do not mess around here, folks. Also, humans should bring one or two squirt guns. The longer the squirt gun lasts, the better. Your life may depend on it!

We also encourage those of you who are going to be “Zombies” to do your makeup, hair, clothes etc to become as zombie like as you can!
