In this paper we demonstrate that radiation patterns could cause flow-like behaviour without any reference to hydrodynamic description. For that purpose we use a statistical ensemble of radiating dipoles, motivated by the investigation of the equivalent photon yield produced by decelerating charges. For the elliptic asymmetry factor, v2, we find a reasonable agreement with experimental data.
