Flash mobs can be fun and entertaining, but they can also serve a greater purpose.

Gustavo Iglezia, a freshman studying communication, is hosting an event as part of a class assignment and decided to use the potential of flash mobs.

Iglezia recruited students from social dance courses to help him put on flash mob in the crossroads. The performance was designed to help promote the upcoming event he is hosting, the Brazilian Harvest Festival.

Iglezia said he felt the flash mob was a success and that students enjoyed the entertainment. Next time a flash mob occurs, it may be more than meets the eye.
