ODA Does the Harlem Shake


Stephani Spindel, Editor-in-Chief

As many of you may heard, there is a new trend going viral called the “Harlem Shake.” For those of you who have never seen it, it is essentially a short video, usually under a minute long, in which one person dances in an unsuspecting place (i.e. an office building, the library, etc.) without anyone noticing and then about half way through the video, when the beat “drops”, everyone joins in.

Recently, during Advisory period, a group of Out-of-Door students attempted the Harlem Shake. The video is hilarious, but could be considered provocative, so we highly recommend parental supervision before watching the video.

“I thought it was hilarious,” said junior Drew Fineberg, who was working the camera when the group of students got together.

In tribute to this new trend, we have selected the following few links to different funny versions of the Harlem Shake:

The Harlem Shake also hit the big screens on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

Several university students also gathered together to dance the Harlem Shake, this video shows just a few of the craziest ones.
