GW men’s basketball does the Harlem Shake

The original Harlem Shake has been around for a while — longer than some of you. But when an electronica track called “Harlem Shake” went viral on YouTube, so did videos of folks dancing to the first 30 seconds of it. Uproxx explains it best:

The key to a “good” Harlem Shake video is for one person, and one person only, to dance to the music, and then when the beat drops, to quick cut to everyone else in the dorm, locker room, or office going absolutely nuts.

So, offices are doing it, military members are doing it (seriously, go watch those), and now our local college athletes are joining in. Here’s is GW men’s basketball with their attempt.
