Video of the Week: Flash mob on Copenhagen's Metro.

Posted by Emily O'Dowd on Feb 10, 2017

Copenhagen's metro consists of a 20.4kcopenhagen.jpgm underground network which first opened in 2004. The driverless metro carried 55 million passengers in 2013 and this is expected to grow once the next part of the metro development - CityRingen has been built. The project is due to open in July 2019 with a further 17 underground stations. 15.5km of new railway will integrate the city from downtown Copenhagen, the "bridge quarters" and Frederiksberg. This large and growing ridership is the perfect advertising opportunity for many businesses and organisations. It was an ordinary day for the commuters on Copenhagen's Metro until the Copenhagen Phil orchestra decided to celebrate their new season's programme by playing Grieg's 'Morning Mood' from Peer Gynt Suite to an unexpecting audience. The video has had over 10 million views on YouTube.
