Denny's Daily Zinger: You Gotta See This Rembrandt Flash Mob!

Get the Flash Player to see this rotator.

In 2012, Peggy and I were in Amsterdam. As a pair of culture vultures, we of course had to visit the fabled Rijksmuseum.

The museum was undergoing a vast renovation and most of it was walled off. As a result, the major attractions were collected and exhibited in a few rooms. Among them: three tiny Vermeers, Rembrandt's enormous heart-stopping The Night Watch and works by Franz Hals and Jan Steen.

We had a miserable time fighting through crowds of visitors, many of them taking photographs and disrupting the flow of traffic.

This past year, the renovation was completed the doors thrown open in a blizzard of hype and fanfare.

Correspondent Will Ezell sent me a link to the most fun P.R. stunt I have ever seen—Rembrandt's The Night Watch flash mob in the Breda shopping mall.
