DOZENS of Ipswich youngsters displayed their feel good dance moves in the town centre square in their answer to the London Liverpool Street T-Mobile advert.

The effect of the impromptu mass public dance used by the mobile phone giant has swept across the nation and now Ipswich teenagers have got in on the action.

Their efforts of taking over the Cornhill and wowing shoppers with a vast array of choreographed moves have made it onto YouTube where the video is currently receiving rave reviews.

With feel good tunes such as Walking on Sunshine and Toploader's Dancing in the Moonlight belting out, the youngsters get their groove on with the Corn Exchange in the background.

The dancers were recruited from schools in the area, with the final product, which is two and a half minutes long, being used for a student's media project.

As the copy of the London Liverpool Street telly ad progresses, a disco theme takes over with classic tunes Freak Out and Staying Alive setting the beat.

In all Peter Hazelwood, the student behind the production, used more than 50 people, including five camera people.

And the mass dance seemed to get the thumbs up from Ipswich shoppers, who give a rapturous applause at its conclusion.

The recreation of the advert was shot on March 15 at 2.30pm.

Mr Hazelwood comments on his YouTube posting that he wishes to thank everyone who got involved to pull off the project, which some had thought was too ambitious for him to pull off.
