Shakes On A Plane: FAA probes college student's' 'Harlem Shake' on a plane

1 min read
The FAA is investigating an incident on a flight from Denver to San Diego when an entire plane load of passengers took part in a mid-air flash mob. Video shot on the Frontier flight shows passengers jumping up and down mid-flight to the latest viral dance craze - the Harlem Shake. While the video has gone viral with more than 450,000 views on YouTube, safety experts have voiced concerns that the prank unnecessarily put the entire plane in jeopardy. The flash mob was organized by members of the Colorado College Ultimate Frisbee Team who were on their way to a tournament in San Diego over President's Day weekend. Somehow they managed to convince fellow passengers of all ages to get up and pump their fists to the dance tune by DJ Baauer. I don't see there being any reason why this should cause any trouble. We asked the staff and they said it was safe, he told Colorado College student newspaper The Catalyst. A Frontier Airlines spokeswoman has said that all safety measures were followed and the seat belt sign was off at the time that the dance was recorded.
