Flash mobs are pretty popular in Berlin and every time, they get stranger. Peter Pink, an artist living in Berlin, organized a potato-flash-mob in front of a Mc Donald’s branch in Berlin Neukölln.
People were asked to make their own Potatoes (download the images for pink glasses, arms, signs and building instructions) and to set them free on the sidewalk in front of Mc Donalds.
Today was international pillow fights day and cities around the world celebrated this day with a massive pillow fight flashmobs on famous places and landmarks.
As you can see, in Berlin, the flashmob was held right in front of the Brandenburg Gate and about one thousand people of all ages fought a merciless war with their pillows, big and small, even though the weather was pretty cold and rainy.
Oberbaum-Bridge 2011, a war between two districts, a war between Kreuzberg (Xberg) and Friedrichshain (Fhain), a war with everything you can throw but won’t hurt people. Since 1998, each summer, people of all kinds and all ages meet up at Oberbaum-Bridge Berlin to fight an anarchic battle with rotten fruits, water-bombs and similar harmless objects.
This year’s winner and therefore the new champion of the bridge is Kreuzberg.
