Imagine you are walking through Leicester Square in London. You see two workmen pull out a piano and leave it on the sidewalk. They walk away and another random person walks over and sits down to play it. Quickly, you realize the music he is playing is from Mary Poppins and is in fact Let’s Go Fly a Kite. Of course, the guy starting to sing along with the piano helps with this realization. Within seconds, people are joining in to sing along with this merry tune. A flash mob is in progress. This is what a group of people did in London to celebrate the opening of Saving Mr. Banks. This Saving Mr. Banks Flash Mob is now on youtube for all to see, or you can just watch it here:

Saving Mr. Banks:
Two-time Academy Award®–winner Emma Thompson and fellow double Oscar®-winner Tom Hanks star Disney’s “Saving Mr. Banks,” inspired by the extraordinary, untold story of how Disney’s classic “Mary Poppins” made it to the screen—and the testy relationship between Walt Disney and author P.L. Travers that almost derailed it.
