The Harlem Shake – Rugby Style

The Harlem Shake has gone viral.

Originally a dance craze in the 1980s, it has now had a resurgence after New York DJ Baauer released the song last year and a few crazy kids from Australia uploaded a video to YouTube.

Luckily for us a few Rugby teams (Blues, Cardiff Blues and Crusaders so far) have gotten involved with the trend and put together a few videos of their own.

  1. I love seeing the more relaxed side of teams – reminds you they are humans like the rest of us! I’m a Crusaders fan and can’t tell if their video disturbs me, OR if I love it.
