A Farcebook organised flash mob outside London's Tate Modern art gallery ended in tears yesterday.
The flas hmob was to celebrate the life and works of Children's TV presenter and artist, Tony Hart who died earlier this year, with every Morph in the country descending on London to take part.
Some of the Morphs had set off from as far away as Piccadilly Circus on the day of his death, heading for the location, a journey that took weeks of painstaking walking, one frame at a time. That so many Morphs had made it was testament to the esteem they held for their creator.
"It was very [slow] moving," said one passer-by. "So many little orange people massing towards the one spot. Some had black armbands, others had brought floral tributes, also made from plasticine."
Not all the Morphs made it. There have been unsubstantiated rumours circulating that a group of Morph's setting off from the London eye, over a hundred metres away, never made it, as they were flattened by a taxi.
For those that did make it though, slow moving blue plasticine tears could be seen rolling down orange faces over the course of an hour, as they listened to a eulogy read out by Chas.
"Mnrm, mnrm," said Chas afterwards. "Mnrrrm-er-nrm."
The flash mob is set to disband over the course of the next several days.
