Chicago Blackhawks fans are so excited about single-game tickets going on sale, they're dancing in the streets.

As seen in a video promoted by the Blackhawks, a large group of jersey-wearing dancers formed a flash mob in Daley Plaza on Monday, when the tickets went on sale.

The song for the number? What else but "Chelsea Dagger" by The Fratellis, the song the Blackhawks play after every goal they score at home games.

It started simply enough in the plaza, with three dancers and the Blackhawks mascot, Tommy Hawk. But things escalated quickly after that as groups of dancers kept joining in until there was a crowd of more than 100.

Tommy Hawk, who reemerged near the end of the video, took part in the choreographed number, doing some impressive acrobatics.

The Blackhawks got their message out and unsuspecting onlookers were treated to a free dance party. A good time had by all.
