Best Coin Ever Spent

Music Videos

This is a flashmob video sponsored and arranged by the fifth largest bank of Spain called Banco Sabadell, on the occasion of the celebration of their 130th anniversary. The video is shot amidst the hustle-bustle of a small ally in Sabadell. People are doing what they generally do—some of them are strolling, enjoying a sunny day with their family, shopping and some of them are just passing by. A musician stands in the corner with a cello and just when a little girl puts a coin into his bowl, he starts to play the music. Another women with cello joins him and people start to gather up with curiosity, to watch them play and in just a short while other musicians with violins and instruments of all sorts come together to play Beethoven’s ‘Ode To Joy’. More than hundred musicians join together from musical institutes like, the Vallès Symphony Orchestra, the Lieder, Amics de l’Òpera and Coral Belles Arts choirs. A conductor in a stripped t-shirt starts to manage the group and more and more people are drawn towards this synchronized musical orchestra. Everybody drops whatever they were doing and starts to enjoy the beautiful symphony. Amazed with the event, they capture it in their cameras and phones and children are dancing with excitement. People are swaying to the music, singing along as if they are being seduced by the unexpectedness of the event and harmony of the melody. It ends with all the musicians taking a bow and audience applauding with joy.

A little girl donates some coins to a street musician and gets the best surprise in return. Well, that's certainly money well spent.
