Suffolk Shakes it Up Harlem Style

Suffolk University produced its own version of the viral “Harlem Shake” last week with great results. Students participated in the event wearing bizarre costumes and dancing to the song over loudspeakers.

The event was held in front of the Donahue building on Valentine’s Day, and roughly 50 students showed up to join in. A wide variety of costumes were present, from simple things like Batman or a banana, to things like a horse mask and a Finding Nemo hat. Joe Cesaro, a sophomore studying global business and marketing at Suffolk, was one such student to participate.

“I became aware of the Harlem Shake videos through YouTube, and was pretty much a fan right away. Once I saw that Suffolk was doing one, I really wanted to be a part of it,” said Cesaro, who was dancing in the front line for the video, wearing a costume that is supposed to resemble a Chinese Take Out Box.

“I got this for Halloween from iParty.com, and thought it would be great for the video,” Cesaro said.

The video has over 14,000 views.
