I dare you

Would you could you? "Not I" said the fly. I would rather sit on the wall and watch something like this go down.
I showed this series of spontaneous musicals to my girls yesterday and they begged me to help them do this. begged. me. Me of the, very self conscience when it comes to singing, to spontaneously, stand up in a crowded space and belt out a show tune about, lunch, napkins, fruit, whatever suits. They swore to me that they'd joined in. Knowing them, they'd chicken out and I'd be rushed off to the nearest hospital for observation.

it's easy - you just need to hang out with choristers and opera singers like I do - this kinda stuff happens ALL the time. lol.

I need more madrigal friends. I swear I'd do it if I knew you wouldn't leave me hanging. I'm easily influenced in situations like this!

Well, you gotta have a soundtrack to go with... and yes, friends. I was certain the woman at the end in the ballcap was Ann Curry, but maybe not. She couldn't sing, so I thought it would be funny if they threw in a "celeb". I have done things like this (not quite as big) and it's pretty funny to watch people's reactions.

you know what's interesting. I thought of BOTH of you when I saw these. If you guys ever do this...count me in. I'm an ex theater kid- so it's lying dormant ready to belt out a tune or two. plus who doesn't love a prank?

I'm way too shy to get involved in anything like this, but I know plenty of dancing/singing types who wouldn't hesitate for a moment!

Love it, it's so great to see smiles on strangers faces.

Megan...that was toooo funny! Those guys were obviously professional actors/singers. What a treat for the diners! :-)

Have you seen the one one a train station in Austria where they sing a song from the Sound of Music--Do Rae Me? It is so great.
This would be so fun to do. But I wonder if I'd chicken out?
I am going to have to watch the rest of these now.
