Julie Andrews and Dancers at the Antwerp Train Station

With all the terrible news filling the airways, here's a real pick-me-up.

It was an apparently normal commuting day at the Central Railway Station in Antwerp, Belgium, when Julie Andrews’ “Do-Re-Mi” began playing over the public address system and "passengers" suddenly broke into a dance. It was a stunt apparently produced for VTM which was producing a Flemish version of "The Sound of Music" with another reality TV show to cast a stage musical. Watch the reactions of the actual passengers.

This is reminiscent (and perhaps modeled after?) the T-Mobile ad of January 15, 2009, when at 11am, hundreds of people who had trained for eight weeks showed up at London’s Liverpool Street train station and unexpectedly broke out into dance. The event was organized by T-Mobile as part of its “Life’s For Sharing” campaign.
