Karme Choling Staff do the Harlem Shake

Karme Choling Harlem Shakearticle by Kim Robinson and Aaron Delong

It all started when Evan Silverman sent me a g-chat to come up to his office. He had something for me to see. It was called the Harlem Shake, and it was sweeping the internet nation. We watched one of the compilation videos on Youtube and I realized immediately that, ‘Oh yes, we must do this.’ After gathering interested parties, having a number of impromptu meetings, and poring over the Harlem Shake oeuvre on-line, we finally decided to just film it already. As if by magic, people gathered with their props and a lot of excitement in the Shambhala Shrine Room. Then we did the Harlem Shake, a number of times. That night, Jesse Walter and I edited the footage and the very next day we got the thumbs up on having it posted. Needless to say, it went viral. At least at Karme Choling.
