    Mystery Flashmob Targets Apple Store in Sydney


    iMore reports today on a flashmob protest that was launched at one of Apple’s Retail Stores in Sydney, Australia. The bus-load of flashmobbers (flashers?!) arrived at the store all dressed identically in black, carrying placards emblazoned with the instruction “Wake Up,” which they held up at the store’s nice big window (just perfect for flashmobbing!) Apparently the flashmob also chanted “Wake Up” at the staff and customers inside the store. The whole riotous event was captured by an Australian blogger called Blunty, who videod it all for posterity. As iMore notes, this is only the latest in a long line of instances of Samsung being a bit stalkerish with Apple, including those TV adverts that mock Apple fans for queuing up at product launches outside Apple stores. Although no official statement has been made by Samsung about the Sydney flashmob, but iMore notes that Samsung’s latest Android phone, the Galaxy S III, is due to be announced very soon, so this is doubtless something to do with that.

    UPDATE: According to SlashGear, Samsung Australia has now said that it had nothing to do with the flashmob, so just who or what was behind it remains a mystery.
