FlashForward fans plan to fall over and act unconscious

FlashForward's fiercest fans are not giving up on their favorite show. Not only are they shipping 20,000 friendship bracelets—similar to the one Joseph Fiennes' character, Mark Benford, was given by his daughter on the series—to ABC Entertainment chairman Steve McPherson, but three days from now they're planning to stage a blackout of their own.

According to Variety, fans of the show will assemble in front of ABC network and affilate offices in New York, L.A., Chicago, Detroit and Atlanta on June 10 and for 2 minutes and 17 seconds are going to pretend to be passed out—just like the 2-minute-17-second blackouts on FlashForward.

While we wish FlashForward's fans luck, unfortunately, given the history of previous "save the show" campaigns, we doubt this one will be successful. (We suspect that the only thing the participants will be seeing in their flash-forwards is a canceled TV show.)

But it should be fun—and it will certainly make for an interesting morning as ABC employees try to get to their offices on Thursday!
