Riot police join labourers in huge flashmob to welcome Dubai Shopping Week
Hundreds take to the streets to mark launch of inaugural 7-day event
Several hundred foreign migrant workers were joined by a large group of riot police on the streets of Dubai yesterday for an enormous flashmob to mark the launch of the inaugural Dubai Shopping Week. Traffic was held up momentarily around the Downtown Dubai district as the troupe – dressed in full costume – welcomed the arrival of the seven-day event, which will include major sales on top electronics and fashion items across the city’s malls. “It was great to see so many people get involved to celebrate this fantastic event,” said one unnamed resident.

Come to think of it, it does resemble a flash mob but without the sound.

Most of these migrant shoppers are probably on the way to their home countries with bags full of iPads purchased with their recent pay rise.

I even heard that the flash mob were offered lifts home in especially chartered Dubai police Nissan’s.
