“Gangnam Style” is out and the “Harlem Shake” is in. The newest YouTube buzz is creating all the rage from teenagers to celebs, but a group of college students may have taken the meme-turned-dance craze to the next level when they took the “Harlem Shake” 35,000 feet above the Earth and are now under investigation by the FAA.
The video, which begins with one dancer and eventually cuts to full-on aviation dance party, was taken on Flight 157 from Colorado Springs to San Diego and is currently under investigation by the Federal Aviation Administration after the video hit the Internet, The Denver Channel reports.
According to the report, the organizer of the video did not wish to comment on the video but notes that it was planned the night before the flight. At first, the dancer appears to be ignored by the passengers before everyone joins in. Odd additions to the video include a man in a banana costume as well as someone wearing a mask of President Lincoln.
Huffington Post reports that Frontier Airline spokeswoman Kate O’Malley insisted that “[a]ll safety measures were followed and the seat belt sign was off" when the video was filmed.
This isn’t the first time a group has taken to the skies to perform. The USA Swim Team took to the air to perform their version of Carly Rae Jepsen’s hit song “Call Me Maybe.”
