Updated With 81 Flashmob Photos: What's With the Dancing at the Getty?

Something unusual happened at the Getty Saturday afternoon. We asked our readers to help us understand. (UPDATED with photos.)

Sunday evening update: Thanks to Brentwood Patch reader Dan Cooke for uploading 81 photos of Saturday's "Gettipede" flashmob at the Getty Center.

"I love the mayhem I go out and take part of," he wrote on his site. "Yesterday was another GLA mission, the Gettipede, where a line of people start working around the Getty Center here in LA and do the same thing as the person in front, say the same thing and [make] same kind of movements. It's fun to watch all of this."


Undulating lines of dancers instigated by a "guerilla" group have infiltrated the . Disguised as ordinary art lovers, the guerillas are snaking around the museum's Brentwood campus.

If you were there, please upload your photos and videos and share your thoughts using the comments box below.

This may not be the first time for this flashmob—one video indicates it may have happened before.

Thanks to Dan Cooke for uploading 81 photos. Some of them made me literally LOL. I'm going get reaction from the Getty people tomorrow. They seemed amused and "re-Tweeted" our news about the fun on Saturday. And we'd love more video and photo uploads from you guys out there if you've got 'em!

Getty media relations exec Julie Jaskol said Monday afternoon she was "delighted" by Saturday's shenanigans. "It's great," she said, "when young audiences find their way to the Museum like this. We think it encourages new audiences to discover and enjoy the Getty and its collections."
