Just when you thought everyone and their mother had done a Harlem Shake video (I implored my own mother, who turned 80 just last week, NOT to make one), the boys from Supernatural (and their crew) have decided to take on the formidable, world-shaking fad.
In fact, not to sound too much like a fan, but I’d even say Jared and Jensen have infused it with a new dose of cool.
The latest YouTube fad has made its way across the border to Vancouver, Canada, to the set of the CW’s Supernatural. A video with the cast and crew’s take on the viral video phenomenon is now on the Interwebs for your viewing pleasure (or displeasure, depending on how sick you are of Harlem Shake videos).
The Supernatural gang is rather late to the Harlem Shake party, but they may have the distinction of being the first to make a Harlem Shake vid with a crane shot. Yes, we get a bird’s eye view of the proceedings — crossroads, demon trap, Impala and all. Kicking things off in the solo dance of the first 15 seconds is, naturally, Mr. Eye of the Tiger himself, Jensen Ackles. See if you can pick out Jared Padalecki, Osric Chau, director Guy Norman Bee and other cast and crew members in the video.
