Kissing City Flashmob

Dozens of couples will gather in one place at a time and start kissing by signal =) This is going to be twice as romantic, as the flashmob is to take place on February 14 known worldwide as St Valentine’s Day! 

The rocket fired into the sky at 8 pm will be the signal for everybody to start kissing. An “experienced” kissing couple should last from three to five minutes, lungs permitting =)

No Pants Subway Ride 2012

A new trend around the world, people in 59 different cities have been riding the subway without pants on! The NO PANTS flash mob movement is gaining momentum, as 28 countries around the world have people participating in this movement. Unfortunatelly, Russia is currently not on this list. A flash mob typically consists of a group of people who travel together to a place, then perform some action together when it is not expected by people everyday. Perhaps it is time for something new in St. Petersburg too? And the No Pants flash mob movement maybe a good start? Though imagine the reaction of the older generation when you pull down your pants in the ST-PETERSBURG METRO =) This will probably give Russian babushkas a heart attack! =)
