Life Video

By Federico Cornetto and Alyce Collins


An amazing viral video captured the moment some blocks of flats lighted up their windows during a quarantine disco flash mob.

On March 28, photographer Billy Bone, from Newcastle, UK, filmed from his house as flats on the opposite side of the river Tyne flashed their lights together at the sound of music as people were locked in their houses amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The event was dubbed #isolationdisco and brought some solace to people spending time in isolation.

Billy said: “I am not sure how many people participated, but we have 40 apartments on our side, so there should be roughly the same amount on the other.

“It was an amazing lockdown party!”
