Harlem Shake – Phoenix Suns Edition (VIDEO)

The Suns and Mercury created their version of the Harlem Shake—the Internet’s newest meme—and may just be the first pro teams to do so. What is the Harlem Shake, you ask? A dance in which Bane beats up the Spurs mascot, natch.

    I love this meme! It really gets people to come out of their shell
    and be silly for 30 seconds, so much fun. There is a huge collection you
    can watch at http://harlemshakevideos.com

    Its basically a meme from the song Harlem Shake by Baauer. The guy who started it is youtuber filthy frank.

  • bedotwater

    I dont know about you guys, but from what I recall this is not the harlem shake.

  • stu

    filthy frank didn’t start it, it was some bored aussie kids.

    There must be more than one Harlem Shake cuz this is just a bunch of rhythm-less ppl flopping around.

    No but whoever it is I wish SLAM would bring them back. Man this mag has maintained but it has fallen so far from when it started. Now all you have is videos all over the webpage and advertisements all in the magazine. Sad, used to be a great magazine back in the day. Now it has become what it used to despise. *Sigh
