♪♫ Sound of Music in a train station

Crowd-sourced, surprise dance-offs took the Internet by storm last year thanks in large part to the renegade troupe of Improv Everywhere. Train stations would suddenly be overcome by regular-looking passersby dropping their bags and breaking into song. There's nothing quite as feel-good as a mass participation protest of banal commutes set to a jazzy tune. A Belgium marketing campaign added the final cherry to top off the dance craze: Julie Andrews. Over 200 people joined in for a train station rendition of Do-Re-Me in Antwerp. The best part about these clips is the surprise on the faces of the non-dancing commuters. Check for the uninhibited older lady at 1:58.

(Thanks Mimi!)
