According to Merriam-Webster, the term flash mob was coined in 2003 when the first such gathering occurred in Manhattan, NY. Flash mobs appear seemingly out of nowhere and most often incorporate some kind of dance or performance. Flash mobs mark a variety of events including celebrations, proposals and other announcements.
