David Blaine is to be flash-mobbed tonight as he enters his final week in a perspex box at Tower Bridge.

Organisers of the Flashblaine event, which is due to run for just three minutes, say they hope to create the biggest flash-mob in the world.

They want people to sound their mobile phone ringtones together at exactly 7.44pm and then chant "what goes up, must come down" at Blaine.

The flash-mobbers are then being asked to laugh manically and hold an item of food in the air.

Flash-mobbing is a US-born phenomena in which hundreds of people spontaneously arrive at a designated area and carry out short, random acts.

Details of the London event were posted on a website over the weekend.

Organiser Peter Bowles hopes Flashblaine will break all previous records.

He said: "The coverage has been huge - our flash mob has already generated a huge amount of interest - I've had to do interviews from Dublin to Illinois, with press in Brazil to Russia covering our event."

They did a stunt in Dublin some months ago, the mob suddenly arrived at a small shoe shop. This is one of the smallest shops in the city and the poor lady owner had a nervous breakdown.

Yes, unfortunately, these guys will only be happy if they cause someone discomfort by their actions, I don't particularly give a stuff about David Blaine, but quite often innocent people are made to suffer.
