FAMW: Can This “Be” Mongolia?

Mongolia is the most sparsely populated independent country in the world, and those who do live there don't all live in yurts, as this will show. Anyway, it seems the "flash mob" phenomenon has reached them. Of course, rock and roll was introduced in the 1960s, despite the Communist government's efforts to prevent it. The 90s brought hip-hop, rap, and techno, and the "boy band" and "girl band" phenomenon has been seen this past decade.

It was only a matter of time ...

This episode happened just last week, to celebrate the 2nd birthday of a company or product called “Be.” The best information that we can get, is that it's either a wireless service provider. Either that or they're just imitating the T-Mobile ads by BE-ing on their cellphones. It doesn't exactly look as though the crowd was caught off-guard, but we gotta hand it to these kids for working so hard to spread joy in their part of world -- and for this week's Friday Afternoon Moment of Whimsy.
