Twelve Days of Christmas Flash Mobs: Natal Feliz de Lisboa

December 20, 2010 |  9:00 am

Last Christmas, employees of the Portuguese airline TAP and the airport authority ANA organized a monster holiday flash mob for passengers at the Lisbon airport.

In true mob style, they encouraged passengers to join in, announcing:

Passengers on flight 00-00 flying to Lapland*: TAP and ANA would like to inform you that no sad children or adults are permitted to this flight. This is a flight where only happiness is allowed on board.

That's why it is with great joy that TAP and ANA wish you a great Christmas and a happy 2010.

Does anyone know the name of the song that starts at 4:46?

Also, next time you are cursing your recalcitrant luggage cart, remember that even Santa can't manage it. (5:27).

*Lapland is the region in northern Scandinavia where European children think Santa lives. (I once nearly ruined Christmas for a whole class full of English first graders when I started going on about Santa's workshop at North Pole, above Canada. A lot of "just kidding, children, sometimes adults gets mixed up, of course Santa lives in Lapland" saved the day. Phew.)

the music at 4:46 is "A Minha Casinha" in a cover by Xutos & Pontapes ( a portuguese rock band from the 80's)

the original song is from a 40's movie called "o costa do castelo"

Nice work, Eumesmo. I had a look on Youtube - the original sure is different to the cover!
