The Harlem Shake. It's the newest dance craze sweeping the nation.
"I was on the internet on Facebook and someone had shared a Saint Leo version, and I just thought it would be awesome to bring it to Shenandoah," said Sophomore Corbin Lucas and Garrett Wooddell.
And that's what they did, they brought it to Shenandoah University. About 30 guys from the baseball team got together and shot their version of the "Harlem Shake."
"One of the players asked me what is the Harlem Shake, and I informed them of an older dance that originated in the 80s and I was oblivious to the whole little phenomena that was taking place on YouTube," said Senior Steven Walker.
It didn't take long before the whole team knew about the new dance craze. Sophomore Garrett Wooddell sent out an e-mail telling all the players to get crazy with costumes. It only took them about a half an hour to put this together.
"We used the first scene that we did," said Sophomore Daniel Freshley.
For these guys, it ended up being more than a goofy dance.
"Pretty much brought out the whole team in a summary right there," Garrett.
"Even the shy kids were participating," said Lucas.
"It was the greatest bonding experience I've had here and the way that we came together as a team, which makes it a lot better when we're on the field," said Walker.
Other SU teams are planning on throwing in some competition with their own renditions.
"It's going to be pretty hard to top us," said Walker. "We're pretty original and brought in some good ideas so but I'm down for the challenge."
"It's going to be hard to top ours, but go for it," said Freshley.
