Viral Video: Wisconsin flash mob protesters sing song from "Les Miserables"

(CBS) - How very meta! A flash mob group of protesters who feel they are being trodden upon in Madison, Wis. sing a song from the musical "Les Miserables" - which is a musical based on the Victor Hugo book based on the popular French protests and uprising of people being trodden upon in 19th century France. I dare you to say that ten times.

The group was part of a protest flash mob - reportedly organized in less than 24 hours - who chose to sing, "Do You Hear The People Sing?"

The ongoing protests in Wisconsin have been in reaction to proposed legislation taking on public workers' collective bargaining rights.
