Con Los Adventistas: Higher Ed. Does the Harlem Shake

While the Harlem Shake dance has been around for over a decade, a new social media meme blew up on YouTube this month. Now thousands of videos of people dancing to a recent song by the American DJ Baauer have been viewed over 44 million times. Students at several Adventist colleges and universities have joined the shaking. Which school does it the best? Vote in the comments. These videos were not endorsed, supported, and/or encouraged by the institutions where the students attend. 

Walla Walla University (best dancing dog)

Andrews University (best dancing in the snow)

Southern Adventist University (best adult baby costume)

Oakwood University (best crowd)

Southwestern Adventist University (best use of school property)

La Sierra University (best gaming)

Pacific Union College (best detail: a shake weight)

Union College (best use of flashing colors)

And finally, one video has a clear message for Adventists thinking of getting in on the fun of this shaking. 

I have posted each of the school names in the comments below. Click "like" for the students you think made the best overall Harlem Shake video and Spectrum will give its Adventist academy award for best academic dancing to the school with the most "likes".
