The Long Island Aquarium & Exhibition Center is the latest group to get in on the Harlem Shake — a dance craze that has gone viral.
The center now joins numerous other area groups to get in on the shake, including the Southampton Historical Museum, Suffolk Community College, Southampton High School, the Ross School and the Rocky Point and Hampton Bays Fire Departments.
On its Facebook Page, the Aquarium said it couldn't resist getting in on the latest dance craze. The Aquarium's verson was filmed in the aquarium and posted on YouTube on March 6.
The meme starts with one dancer rocking to the music all on his lonesome — in this case, a person dressed in a shark costume— while the people around him are seemingly oblivious. About 15 seconds in, the videos cut to an entire room filled with people in fish costumes jamming in a frenzy.
Silly costumes, risqué dance moves, and a lot of props, the Harlem Shake videos are prime to watch over and over because you'll usually spot something different each time.
Some videos are bringing in serious hits. Members of the Rocky Point Fire Department did one that has over 5.3 million views.
