flashmobbed

verb; zero derivation and derivation
the act of having done a flashmob in the past
 
The noun flashmob was made a verb in this case through zero derivation, and then the -bed ending is added to form a past tense verb. The extra b is added in a way very similar to the past tense formation of the verb "to mob."
Etymology : From flash (an element of suddenness), and mob (a group of people doing something all together).
