On June 10, 2010, fans staged a world-wide blackout for 2 minutes and 17 seconds. You have to watch this compiled video!
“FlashForward’s” central premise, fans of the show will gather in front of ABC network and affiliate offices in New York, L.A., Chicago, Detroit and Atlanta on June 10 and stage a blackout of their own.
For two minutes and 17 seconds, fans of the show are going to pretend to be passed out in front of ABC offices (and other places around the globe).
Supporters of the cancelled TV show converged on London’s leafy Wandsworth Common last night to stage a mass “blackout.” Pretend blackouts, lasting for 2 minutes and 17 seconds, mimicking the opening of the show, also took place simultaneously in Edinburgh, Dublin, Pisa, Italy. European fans linked up with US campaigners trying to save the show. Mini-blackouts were staged in New York, Atlanta, Seattle, Toronto, Detroit, Chicago and Los Angeles, where protestors fainted in front of ABC’s offices in Burbank. I’m not sure that a lot of people falling over will move the Mouse House to pity though.
