Just when you thought you couldn’t be more excited about the new Lion King movie.

Over the past weekend, commuters, tourists, and families around Vancouver were treated to several epic flash mobs.

The performances were part of a special campaign between the YVR Pop Choir and Walt Disney Studios Canada and saw members take to the Expo Line, the Olympic Cauldron, and Granville Island, amongst other locations.

Once there, they broke into two of the movie’s most iconic songs — “Circle of Life” and “I Just Can’t Wait to be King.”

Needless to say, the results brought chills to unsuspecting audience members.
