The “Harlem Shake” craze is taking the Internet by storm, and at a staff meeting yesterday, the Admission Office joined in the fun. Watch the video above.

Since early February, more than 12,000 “Harlem Shake” videos have been uploaded to YouTube. The internet meme involves a 30-second excerpt from the song “Harlem Shake” by electronic musician Baauer. The video begins with one person dancing to the song alone for 15 seconds, surrounded others who appear to be unaware of the dancing individual. Halfway through the song, the video switches to the entire crowd, dressed in costumes, hats or masks, doing a crazy convulsive dance for the next 15 seconds.
