Watch: 'Harlem Shake' Polar Plunge for Special Olympics
It's not a secret that the "Harlem Shake" has taken the internet by storm. But it's doubtful that many of the previous versions had their main dancer be their Vice President. Or, that their effort resulted in a good cause.
That's exactly what the Colorado Rapids did.
On Sat. Feb. 23 several members of the Rapids front office staff and season ticket holders took the Polar Plunge by running into the frigid waters of the Aurora Reservoir to raise money for Special Olympics Colorado.
But before they got started, the club's Vice President of Commercial Operations, Jeff Jacobson, began the "Shake." Soon, the rest of the staff, fans, and mascots got in on the show.
Now the Rapids are taking this version of the Harlem Shake to another level.
For every view the video above gets, Dick's Sporting Goods and the Colorado Rapids will donate $0.10 up to 100,000 views for a donation of $10,000. For every view over 100,000 Dick's Sporting Goods and the Colorado Rapids will donate an additional $.01. SHARE THE LINK
