The Hampton Bays Fire Department is the latest group to get in on the Harlem Shake — a dance craze that has gone viral.
The department 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 Fire Department.
The Hampton Bays Fire Department made the video with the blessing of their fire chief at their annual dinner on Saturday, posting the video on YouTube on Sunday. It has already Yielded 1,059 hits.
The meme starts with one dancer rocking to the music all on his lonesome — in this case, a firefighter — while the people around him are seemingly oblivious. About 15 seconds in, the videos cut to the entire room jamming in a frenzy with department members holding chairs in the air, some have no shirts on.
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.
