Transcript for Flash Mob in PEI National Park

Parks Canada's Youth Ambassador Logo is displayed.

The video begins with a close up view of a person's feet walking across a beach carrying a portable audio speaker. Title screen reads: "Cavendish Beach, Prince Edward Island"

Video cuts to reveal that the people carrying the audio speaker are George Woodhouse and Lindsay Little, the Parks Canada Youth Ambassadors. George lifts his sunglasses and gives a wink to the camera.

Video cuts to title screen that reads "PEI National Park FLASH MOB" as the song "My Friend" by the band Paper Lions begins to play.

Video then cuts to a view of Cavendish Beach as George, by himself, begins to dance to the music. Lyrics to the music follow:

"We're pushing out the door"

"The winner isn't last"

"We rise up through the floor"

"You jump the hatch and then come crashing down"

"The best show off of all"

"You call out and your arm is pulp"

"I know you are my friend"

"And if I never met you"

"I would be different"

Video cuts to scenes of George and Lindsay exploring PEI National Park: riding along Greenwich Beach in a truck, lipsyncing along to the song while driving in a car, paddleboarding in the ocean, and talking to Anne of Green Gables.The video cuts to George dancing in a group which has grown considerably in size. The lyrics to the music follow:

"I know you are my friend"

"And if I never met you"

"I would be different"

"If I never met you"

"I know you are my friend"

"I would be different"

"I know you are my friend"

"I would be"

"I know you are my friend"

"I would be different"

"I know you are my friend"

"I would be different"

The video ends with George dancing in unison with more than 100 people to the song. They all celebrate at the end of the music and loud applause are heard. Lindsay looks at the camera and gives a thumbs up gesture as the hashtag #parkslife title apears on screen.
