Hundreds of people have signed up to appear in a massive UCF recreation of the new viral craze, the Harlem Shake.

A Facebook group was created to publicize the event and over 900 people have said they will be “going” to be in the filming of the video. According to posts within the Facebook group, UCF’s mascot, Knightro, will be kicking off the dance.


The group lists the following message as the plan:

“At 4:00PM [Friday], we will be shooting KNIGHTRO dancing by himself with only a few extra people walking around in the middle of the student union. After we have shot this, we will get everyone in position to do the drop. We are still finding the best angle, but we are planning on getting the entire floor of the union, the stairs, and at least the second floor, if not the third floor as well,” the description says.

For those unaware of this new viral video sensation, the Harlem Shake involves people creating videos, about 30 seconds long, that are set to “Harlem Shake” by New York deejay Baauer. The first 15 seconds contain just one person dancing while everyone else in the room acts normal. When the beat drops is when the tone changes a bit. Check out the video below to see how it works.
