The Miami Heat found a very productive use for an off-day.
The Heat posted a Harlem Shake video on its YouTube page Thursday evening that might just be the best version of the hugely popular internet meme.
The video follows the standard Harlem Shake format: 15 seconds of one person dancing (center Chris "Birdman" Andersen in this case) while the rest of the team goes about its business, followed by a cut to the entire team dancing in costume. The Heat added an extra thirty seconds of dancing, all the more time to show off their elaborate costumes.
Watch the video below:
This easily bests the Miami Dolphins cheerleaders' Call Me Maybe video for the title of greatest viral video ever.
It is hard to tell what the best part of the video is, as there is so much to love, particularly the costumes. LeBron James wears a crown and cape, while Chris Bosh (a native Texan) pairs a ten-gallon hat with a vintage boombox.
Mario Chalmers sports a Super Mario costume.
Between the team's twelve-game winning streak, impressive pre-game dunk contests, and now this, there really has never been a better time to be a Miami Heat fan.
