Amir Johnson, Toronto Raptors make Harlem Shake video. We bring it to you anyway.

I’m not sure what the official rule is for when a meme jumps the shark, but when a professional sports team mascot is in on it you are already past that point.

But here it is anyway. I like Amir Johnson taking charge here, and that Dwane Casey took part.

If this were the Lakers locker room and Metta World Peace just did this during an actual film session, would it shock you?

By the way, some people from Harlem are trying to take the Harlem Shake back — the meme dance is nothing like the real thing.

    lol something tells me new york native and new teammate sebastian telfair had a little something to do with idea of making a harlem shake vid.

      I seriously doubt it. New Yorkers would never disrespect the original Harlem Shake with this crap and call it the Harlem shake. Telfair would have called this the Raptor Shake, but never the Harlem shake.

        It’s only called the Harlem Shake cause of the song by DJ Baauer called “Harlem Shake.”

        New Yorkers are super sensitive if they get upset about something as trivial as this.
