The Harlem Shake Pink Slip

My fear of LSCB being left out of the Harlem Shake craze has finally been alleviated thanks to Barminco, an Australian mining company.  According to news reports, Barminco fired 15 mine workers for filming and posting a video of the employees performing the Harlem Shake at a mining site.  Several of those fired, merely watched the performance. The workers have allegedly been banned from working at any Barminco site, worldwide. No one has ever suggested that corporate managers possess a sense of humor (except, maybe, for Andrew Mason). If you ask me, I think Barminco should have embraced the video as evidence of how much fun it can be to work in a dark dank hole thousands of feet below the surface of the planet.  But then, no one ever asks me.

What is the Harlem Shake? Read here.  WARNING! Many of the Harlem Shake videos can be risque.  Always preview anything that you show in class.

Watch here (not risque):
