Flashmob recreate The Night Watch

This flashmob stunt in a shopping center reconstructed Rembrandt’s painting, The Night Watch. Performers in period dress gallop in on horses, arrive by swinging from balconies and abseiling down ropes to recreate a particular moment.

I think this is the best flash mob video I have ever seen and a really good way to promote the re-opening of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.

      Hi Annet I watched it but since it is in Dutch I could the enthusiasm for the project but that is all I could understand unfortunately. I loved the way they make the painting accessible to people.
