Pokemon Ad from 2015 and the recent Central Park Pokemon Go crowd

A Pokemon Go ad from 2015 shows a crowd gathering in Time’s square to battle for a Myutwo.

In real life hundreds (perhaps a thousand) gathered when a Vaporeon spawned in Central Park. Life imitating a commercial.

Other real life Pokemon Go crowds.

500 people gathered in downtown Bellevue. People spread out all around the park and would shout out if a rare pokemon spawned. In the beginning of the video you can hear everyone shouting SQUIRTLE!!

Note – the 1958 Disney video of lemmings committing mass suicide was in fact entirely staged.
