That's the food-court in a mall in downtown Montreal. I pass through there often! Cool!

I think they are Canadian and not French. Could be wrong. I took 7th grade conversational Spanish.

Awesome! That girl handled it very nicely too :P

On a seperate note: the video in the "why everything sucks" link on the side there <-- has been taken down :(

Translation of the French text:

0:18 - Every year, 671 million kilograms of plastic are produced in the world.

0:33 - Every year, 400 million refundable containers are not recycled in Quebec.

0:49 - There are 18,000 pieces of plastic floating on each square km of ocean.

1:50 - 91% of Quebecers care about the environment. What about you?

*For what it's worth, I'm pretty sure this was filmed in the food court of the Eaton Centre in Montreal.

Wow, I was not expecting that! your title is a bit misleading though, since I would call it a Canadian flash mob :D

Yay! Montreal. Go Canada! I love this video.

Educational flashmobs, oh thank you internet! :)
And yes, there are people in Canada - Canadians then - who speak French. Yet they don't like to be referred to as French - as they're Canadian -, you might want to check that twice before doing so. (also true for the Belgians and the Swiss)
