Twelve Days of Christmas Flash Mobs: Love actually [Updated]

December 19, 2010 |  9:00 am

Remember "Love Actually," the 2003 film starring Colin Firth, Hugh Grant and Emma Thompson? (The romantic comedy is one of the most popular Christmas movies, according to a recent Entertainment Weekly online poll.)

Remember how Bill Nighy's aging rocker character was changing the words to "Love Is All Around" to "Christmas Is All Around," so he could release the track and get a Christmas No.1?

That's the general direction we're heading with today's flash-mob video, which was shot (actually in honor of Valentine's Day) at Brussels South Charleroi Airport in Belgium.

Charleroi serves RyanAir in a terminal that popular opinion tends to charcterize as hell on earth. For these few minutes, though, it all looks rather lovely, especially since the staff and passengers appear to be dancing instead of professionals.

 

We'll be back Monday with another video.

[For the record, 8:15 a.m. Monday: An earlier version of this post incorrectly referred to the release date of "Love, Actually" as 2006.]
