MSU Harlem Shake invades mall

Let’s be honest, we all occasionally get the urge to be wild, ridiculous and spontaneous and dance like nobody’s watching.

A new viral craze has been sweeping the nation where acting absurd is highly encouraged — it’s called the Harlem Shake. Last Friday, MSU students joined the masses and made their own Harlem Shake video in front of Montana Hall.

In the video, students cross the mall in front of Montana Hall as if on their way to class, while Champ the Bobcat dances solo above the swarm. If you’re familiar with the craze then you know what happens next: the song drops and all hell breaks loose. A dude in a dress, a banana getting manhandled by a gorilla and saucer boy are just a few of the wild moments in the video, which you can view at http://youtu.be/tW3gH9lOti4.
