Potential Dance Idea

PayneTraynePayneTrayne CanuckRegistered User regular
So, I was thinking while I was at work and I stumbled upon an interesting idea. What if the entire pre-PAX queue were to do the Harlem Shake?

What's the Harlem shake you ask? Well here's some videos to explain it:

Basically, we'd need one costumed person to do an awkward little dance followed by the entire crowd busting out into an incredibly random 'dance', the more awkward the dancing, the better.

Just throwing this out there, I'd like to see it filmed (as there would have to be a jump cut for it to be a true Harlem Shake) and I think it could be pretty lulzworthy.

    I think this would be awesome.

    Considering the queue room is packed tight at almost all times, the logistics of this would be nigh impossible. Maybe talk to @Vapok about including it in his /dance. http://forums.penny-arcade.com/discussion/169495/2013-dance-party

    If this isn't at /dance, I will be a very very sad Cybrid.

    Now that I know about it... I don't know how it can possibly NOT be at /dance. That said, I have some more ideas on how to make it more fun!

    Honestly I'd love to see the Protomen do this. That or the cosplayers in their regular clothes at the start, then in full costume after the bass drops. ^_^

    If this were to go down when would it all happen and where? I would love to be the masked man in the beginning of the video.

    I imagine some iteration of it will be happening at /dance, and I also imagine that many people will want to be the masked man. We shall see as we get closer to PAX and I hear more from Vapok.
