Harlem Shake craze springs FAA investigation

Posted: Updated:

During a flight from Colorado Springs to San Diego, a group of students made a Harlem Shake dance video.

An FAA spokesman said they are trying to figure out what phase the flight was in during the dance in the aisles.

Frontier Airlines says the seatbelt sign was off and safety measures were followed.

Usually in the Harlem shake video one person, often masked, is dancing in the beginning.

Anyone else in the video simply doesn't pay attention to the masked dancing.

When the bass drops, everyone else joins in on the dancing. Most people are wearing costumes and using props.

In the video the Colorado students made, one person is wearing a helmet dancing in the aisles wearing neon shorts.

Then other passengers decided to join in. There was even a person dressed as a banana on the flight.

This wasn't the only Harlem Shake video shot on a plane. You can find others simply by searching YouTube.

CNN reporter Tory Dunnan spoke to former airline pilot Jim Tilmon.

Tilmon said an airplane is not a place for fun and games. What do you think? Share with us on Facebook.
