Video Taken Down: Toronto Law Firm Performed a Flash Mob Dance

Well it was fun while it lasted. On December 15, 2010 at 1:30 p.m., a group made primarily of Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLP (Blakes) articling students, and a few partners, associates and staff, performed a Flash Mob dance at the Commerce Court food court in Toronto, to the song "I've Got a Feeling" by the Black Eyed Peas.

Now the YouTube video has been removed at the request of Cherry River Music and Will.I.Am Music for using the song "I've got a feeling" by Black Eyed Peas without permission.  "Thanks for ruining Christmas," as Adrian Dayton wrote in his blog. 

Blakes is a 150-year old law firm with more than 550 lawyers in offices in Montréal, Ottawa, Toronto, Calgary, Vancouver, New York, Chicago, London, Bahrain, Beijing, Al-Khobar and Shanghai.

Wearing red baseball caps and office garb, the dancers started choreographed arm-swinging, and then cell phone cameras came out from the crowd, and shoppers started moving to the beat. By last week the video had been viewed nearly 9,000 times.
