Harlem Shake Planned for the HUB Lawn

Want to be a part of Penn State’s Harlem Shake? Well, here’s your chance. The Harlem Shake has blown up all over YouTube and is now making its appearance right here on campus with nearly 3,000 people RSVP’d to attend a filming on the HUB lawn.

Released for retail to iTunes on January 8, 2013, the “Harlem Shake” remained on the down-low until this month when a YouTube video for the song was created. Recorded by American DJ and producer Baauer, the song morphed into widespread Internet dance, parodied by over 3,000 YouTube users.

You can check out a compilation of Harlem Shake videos here to get a clear understanding of the Internet phenomenon. Clearly, you can see the pattern of odd dance moves unravel with each skit.

So, bring your crazy props and costumes to the HUB lawn tomorrow at 3:00 p.m. to be filmed in hopefully what will be known as a record-breaking “Harlem Shake.” Word on the streets is that Boombox Guy, the Nittany Lion, and the State College Storm Trooper are all showing up to participate.

Make sure to share the event with your friends so that we can beat out our competitors at UT. You can also check out an alternative version of the Harlem Shake led by Go Go Gadjet at THON.
