Thousands in Germany, Switzerland and Austria Organize International Flash Mob in Support of New Bellamy Brothers, D.J. Ötzi Release
Last week while media blitzing Europe in support of their new release with German pop star D.J. Ötzi, country music’s legendary duo, the Bellamy Brothers, made history when they were simultaneously flash mobbed in three separate cities in Germany, Switzerland and Austria.
European fans and dance clubs organized the massive flash mob, set to the tune of the new Bellamy, Ötzi tune, “Like A Star.” The flash mob was heavily promoted internationally throughout Europe via Facebook and Twitter.
The end result was thousands upon thousands of Bellamy Brothers and D.J. Ötzi fans (all stationed in public locations in Berlin, Zurich and Vienna), boot scootin’ in perfect sequence to the new hit song featured on the recently released, D.J. Ötzi & the Bellamy Brothers: Simply The Best (Universal Music Germany).
“We were in Berlin rehearsing for a television performance when we heard about the mob,” says David Bellamy. “We drove over and were in complete awe of how many people were singing and dancing to ‘Like A Star’ in perfect sequence.”
Howard Bellamy notes, “The coolest part of the flash mob was that it was happening not only where we were in Berlin but also in Switzerland and Austria at the exact same time. We were told we set some sort of world record but we’re still waiting on specifics.”

D.J. Ötzi & the Bellamy Brothers: Simply The Best features Ötzi and the Bellamys singing together on some of their biggest hits, as well as several American classics. Tracks include, “Crossfire,” “The Gambler,” “Islands In The Stream” and “Sweet Caroline,” among others. The album is currently available for purchase throughout Europe.
Since releasing the album last month, several tracks, as well as the album itself, have consistently remained in the Top 20 downloads of the national German Download Chart.
