We sort of knew that once the Harlem Shake hit the Internets, it wouldn't be long before a legion of Bears would take to the streets and replicate it the way we desired. Thankfully, the streets were not taken, but instead one of our beautiful libraries got occupied.
Indeed, the setting of Doe Library is pretty hard to top. That, plus the Batman suit and the totally chill dude doing absolutely nothing ("Sup.") definitely vaults this into the top five of "Harlem Shake videos I've watched." But you don't get to know how many I've watched, so joke's on you!
This isn't the only Cal Harlem Shake video that's been circulating. Here's a bunch of kids in the Stacks with two of them still studying right through the video, which is the most Berkeley thing.
Then there's the Alpha Tau Omega version, which takes place on the Round Table where King Arthur and his knights drank goblets of wine and regalled themselves with tales of pillaging.
Then there's this sorority one. I want to join this sorority now. I feel like I'll fit right in, except for all those chores I'd have to end up doing.

UPDATE: Here's the Cal Band version.
Assess what you've just watched. Still trying to process myself.
