Never too old… our kind of flash mob!

OWN member Kate Chung sends this in:

“Finally a flash mob I can relate to. Filmed in Auckland, New Zealand, the participants are between the ages of 65 and 95, making this the world’s oldest flash mob. This was done as a promotion to improve adaptable and accessible housing for the aging population. I admire their youthful approach and their having so much fun promoting the cause.
