Friends of the Charter Amendments,
Your help is needed this Thursday, Oct. 23. The educational campaign for the charter amendments is well under way. Most of our campaign thus far has taken on traditional forms like newspaper, billboard, fliers, etc... Now, we will begin the non-traditional forms of disseminating the message to Vote Yes. This is where you can help.
On Thursday, Oct. 23 at 12:15 PM in Market Square we will do a public stunt called a Freeze Mob, and it is going to be fun. This has never been done before in Knoxville. Below is a link to a youtube video demonstrating what this is. Essentially, I need as many volunteers as possible to fill market square at lunch time. We will all appear to be walking and going about our days when at the same moment, we will freeze. This will last for 5 minutes. If you watch the video below, you will be able to tell that people notice this. All of the sudden, those dining in Market Square call back to their friends who decided to stay back at work. People come out of the restaurants to see what all the hubub is about. During the last 30 seconds, someone will yell out our message and then everyone will depart. The primary purpose for this event is to film it and youtube it. Then the viral process begins. We will send the video out to everyone we know. It will be on facebook, myspace, youtube, google, knoxify, news sentinel, etc... The success of this event depends entirely on whether or not enough of you can participate.
If you are able to help, I will only need you for 20 minutes on your lunch break. 15 minutes early to setup and 5 minutes for the actual freeze. We will meet at 12:00 PM at the Federal Courtyard two blocks South of Market Square.
FREEZE MOB EXAMPLE
If you are available to help, just email stating you will be there. THANKS!
