Following a mail of Swatch the club 10
days ago, collectors were invited to attempt a Flash Mob in
Paris. During the last months, several Flas Mobs have been
organised by independant organiser in Paris (at the Louvre pyramid for
example). But today, it was an Eurosport - Swatch event
oraganised at the same time in various cities all over Europe.
Meeting time with Swatch France staff was 12:00 with a scheduled event
for 13:06. Collectors were offered to enjoy a drink at Saint
Severin Bar while last minute Xmas gifts tips were shared.... as
well as news regarding Swatch scheduled release. Expecting rainy
weather, Swatch umbrellas were a pre-Xmas gift for collectors ... but
no in use today due to only cloudy weather :) The
Chinese special in packaging might be available worldwide... and the
next Valentine looks very nice.
Few minutes before, flyers were given away, and at 13:06 blue balloons
(as we say in France "Allez les bleus" which stands for the national
team as well as our shirt color in official competition) were
distributed to everyone.
During few minutes we (around 80 people at Place Saint Michel) have to
exercise with the balls while press and Video broadcast the
event. It seems that the videos will be available on the website
of Eurosport. A maxi Swatch was also "in person" during the event
on the Place.
Nice fast event in Paris and .... good luck to national team for the
drawing later on today....
