Yahoo celebrated its 17th birthday last Friday and — in spite of some seriously troubling changes going on at the Silicon Valley Internet giant — the fantastic employees got together for a flash mob of dancing.

(Thanks to Yahoo Chief Product Officer Blake Irving for the tip on the video via Twitter.)
