According to what we’re hearing from the Facebook’s chatterings, the city’s hubristic chamber of commerce fell victim not to the Ghost of Jobsmas past, but to a well-choreographed flash mob at its annual self-congratulatory meeting of the minds held at the KFC Yum! Center earlier today.
We’ll update as soon as the Internet coughs up some video.
UPDATE: Judging from this video footage, the term “flash mob” is being co-opted by GLI to mean “random people start dancing in a non-threatening, arrhythmic manner.”
(Note to prospective Louisville-area investors: We’re led to believe that this is definitive proof that if you really want to get into GLI President Joe Reagan’s headspace, either put on a white beard or force him to start dancing. Oh, and in case you were wondering, tickets to the event were $135 per individual. (note: GLI meeting-ticket costs are not factored into Louisville’s cost-of-living index, which is considerably larger than it appears) )
