Everyone has seen or heard about the Harlem Shake videos that are exploding on the internet. WMU has been a part of that craze in various videos. The newest video of the WMU coaching staff doing the dance has gained national attention.
Three days ago, this coaches only version of the Harlem Shake was featured on Yahoo! Sports.
Earlier in the week Virginia Tech had been mocked by the website for their coaches’ participation in the football team’s rendition of the Harlem Shake.
Coach P.J. Fleck redeemed coaches everywhere with his video featuring coaches only.
The video begins with Fleck writing the team’s new motto “Row Your Boat” on the dry erase board. Then Buster Bronco comes galloping around the room with patriotic balloons.
Everyone on the staff gets involved in the wacky dancing. It concludes with offensive coach Kirk Ciarrocca dancing solo for about 20 seconds.
The staff gets credit for not taking itself too seriously and for the youthful exuberance that Fleck has.
