Station departs from normal routine (this is so cool!)

London, January 16, 2009

(Story from

The bustling but humdrum concourse of Liverpool Street station was brightened up as people who had appeared to be travellers and station staff began to dance. A group of about 400 performed a mix of hip-hop, disco and ballroom moves.

The dancing, part of an advertising campaign for the telecommunications company T-Mobile, was filmed on cameras hidden around the station.

The full sequence will be shown in an advertising break on Channel 4 during Celebrity Big Brother tomorrow evening.

A T-Mobile spokeswoman said: “Dance brings to life the fact that there are often unexpected, wonderful, exciting things that happen that you want to be able to share with your friends and family.”

The best part of it all is if you search for this on YouTube, you get all of the videos from people filming on their phones... the whole point of T-Mobile's ad. Pretty clever.
