Laurier Brantford students got crazy on the steps of the Carnegie Building on Thursday afternoon.
About 300 students helped film their own version of the "Harlem Shake."
"The Harlem Shake is a popular style of hip hop dance and the title of a 2012 heavy bass instrumental track produced by Baauer," says the website www.knowyourmeme.com. "The song recently spawned a series of dance videos that begin with a masked individual doing the Harlem Shake alone among a group, before suddenly cutting to a wild dance party featuring the entire group."
Several versions of the dance uploaded to www.youtube.com have attracted millions of views since the beginning of February.
Laurier Brantford joins numerous college and university campuses in filming their own version of the viral dance video as a display of school spirit.
