‘Harlem Shake’ Takes Over at Wedding Ceremony

The "Harlem Shake" craze is pretty much over. So chalk up this buzzy video of the dance making its appearance at a wedding ceremony as the necessary "something old," maybe?

The video taken at at the First Friends Church in Salem, Ohio, shows the happy couple being pronounced husband and wife and sharing a first kiss, with the groom even making a victorious fist pump.

Then … queue music and one very flexible groomsman. Suddenly, the wedding party is doing the "Harlem Shake," including, by the way, a game pastor who gets his groove on.

As suddenly as it starts, it stops, and the wedding ceremony introducing Nate and Abby as "Mr. and Mrs. Netti" continues.

We may have thought that the "Harlem Shake" was dead, but don't tell that to the Web. The video which was posted on Sunday, has already received over 53,000 views, and counting.

David Seymour, an usher seated at the back of the room, was filming the ceremony and put his video on the Web.

"I placed my camera on a small tripod back on the ledge of the sound system to just get some video to share with our friends," he told Yahoo! in an email.

"I didn't know that they were going to do the 'Harlem Shake' at all. They are truly some of the nicest people in the world, so I am glad a lot of people are celebrating their marriage with them," he added.

So are we.
