Right before the Christmas hiatus, Community fans are trying to get NBC‘s attention in a big way. On Sunday, the @OccupyNBC Twitter retweeted a call to fans to participate in a flashmob this Thursday, December 22, at New York City’s Rockefeller Plaza. The Craigslist posting instructs fans to show up at 1 p.m. with tiny Christmas trees and black felt/paper goatees — a reference to the “Remedial Chaos Theory” episode from this past season — and to sing “O Christmas Tree” for a half hour.
The intent is to chat with NBC folks (since the network’s shows and offices are in 30 Rock) and show how much Community deserves to come back after its current hiatus. There’s been no word yet from NBC if they’ll bring the show back.
There’s also a Facebook group for the flashmob; one commenter asks, Shouldn’t we be singing “Oh Christmas Troy”? Very true.
