Harlem Shake dance craze hits UAB

Gangnam Style is so 2012. It's time for the Harlem Shake!

If you have yet to witness the new dance absurdity that's lighting up YouTube, watch this brief video.

The dance has sparked an internet meme, and there are plenty more examples of others joining the fun.  You know you want to be a part of it, so Gang Green invites everyone join in a mass exhibition of the Harlem Shake dance as the UAB men's basketball team takes on Rice Saturday, Feb. 16 at 7 p.m. in Bartow Arena.

The Harlem Shake will take place during the 2nd half of the game, during the 8-minute media time out.

And if you thought the original videos were funny, watch as Gang Green president Dustin Welborn gives his own demonstration of the dance.
