Top Five Bay Area Harlem Shake Videos

A.K.A. the best 150 seconds of your day. How locals are getting down with the latest Internet phenomenon.

1. Harlem Shake at Crissy Fields
The classic one-man-dancing-with-his-head-down explodes into an orgy of banana suits, sleeping bag worms, and raving construction workers.

2. Harlem Shake West Oakland
A big tip of the hat to the East Bay, mainly because their costumes are outrageous, they are seriously shaking it, and obviously someone gave it some love in the editing process.

3. Harlem Shake at Berkeley
Even drones can get in on the action! Though do beware of flying/falling objects.

4. Harlem Shake with Stanford Gymnastics
Complete with Spiderman, a priest, fun noodles, and—surprise!—some acrobatics.

5. Harlem Shake with SalesForce
Because HR totally “made them do it.”

Bonus Video: 

6. Harlem Shake with Rice Paper Scissors
Nothing says San Francisco like shaking it while wearing a dragon head in Dolores Park.
