Flash "Harlem Shake" Mob Surrounds Evangelist On UA Campus, Penguin Pays the Price

Posted By on Thu, Feb 14, 2013 at 2:41 PM

Now, I have nothing against Brother Jed, the traveling evangelist who routinely rolls up to the University of Arizona campus to shout at students about how their sinful ways are leading them to Hell — I mean, you've gotta follow your heart's passions, right? — but watching students protest his speech by countering with their take on the Harlem Shake is some damn good viewing.

For the uninitiated, the Harlem Shake meme (as it has apparently become a thing that will hopefully die soon) involves one person dancing to some EDM tune, followed by a large group of people dancing to the song after the beat drops. None of them are doing the actual Harlem Shake, but that's neither here nor there.

My concern, at this point, has to be for the poor person in the penguin outfit that Jed knocks the f—k out. Jed was well within his rights, as I feel a man that's surrounded in enemy territory should do everything possible to avoid getting humped by hundreds of people at once, but man. Poor penguin.
