Adventist Universities do the Harlem Shake

Students at Walla Walla University joined the latest online craze when they danced the Harlem Shake at the library Tuesday, Feb. 11.




Students were asked to follow two ground rules before participating in the video: don't break anything and keep the dance moves silly and appropriate.


Students at other Adventist universities have also been doing their own versions of the Harlem Shake.


Unfortunately, students at Union College, Andrews University, and Pacific Union College did not keep their dances non-suggestive and made versions which were inappropriate for this website.


But there are still plenty of other versions out there that are both silly and age-appropriate. Here's one from students at Southern Adventist University.




Oakwood University:




Harlem Shake is an online dance meme where one person (usually wearing a helmet or hat) begins dancing (usually suggestively). After the bass drops, the video does a jump cut to several people shaking/dancing/being random at the same time. The whole thing generally lasts about 30 seconds.


The meme is only a few weeks old, but it's already gotten really old, really fast. Here's to hoping the meme has a quick death so this blog moves on and returns to posting more news-worthy things. ;)




Update: Some Adventist universities have been asking its students to either not do the Harlem Shake or to take down videos of them doing the Harlem Shake.


According to Southern Adventist University's student newspaper, a larger version of the Harlem Shake had been planned with over 200 people planning to attend. According the newspaper, the event was cancelled after administrators requested it not happen.



In Jamaica, students at Northern Caribbean University did the Harlem Shake on Feb. 20.


Hours after uploading the video, one of the school administrators asked for the video to be taken down, according to an NCU student who asked not to be named.


The student provided A Sabbath Blog with a screenshot of the video, which you can see below.
