Flashmob Wages Largest Public Lightsaber Battle Ever

Add another item to the list of why England is cool.  On Saturday, at precisely 12:59 Greenwich Mean Time, more than one hundred people took the central court of Cabot Circus in Bristol by shiny, buzzing, laser storm.  The mob was organized by Tom Merchant-Locke, Daniel Morgan Jones and Liam Penn, using Facebook.  The clock ticked over, a whistle was blown, and the mayhem began.

/Film has no less than four videos of the event, but our favorite is below.  Is it because of the music?  Yes.  Yes it is.

May the force be with all of you, Bristol battlers, and with your bruised knuckles as well.
