Harlem Shake

Western Washington University made their very own “Harlem Shake” video in the infamous Red Square today.

It was exciting to see so many people letting go of their inhibitions to get dressed up and get funky for the video! And of course, in stereotypical Pacific Northwest style, it drizzled a little on the dancing crowd.

Here are some highlights from the event:
