During Tennessee’s win over Kentucky yesterday the “Rocky Top Rowdies”, which is the student section for Tennessee, did their part in a trend sweeping the nation. The student section put together a “Harlem Shake” video. They took to Twitter the day before the game to encourage participation.
Tomorrow’s 1 pm game vs. Kentucky on CBS. Student section doing Harlem Shake video during the first half. Dressing up is encouraged.

In case you’ve been living under a rock the “Harlem Shake” is where once person stands alone dancing, usually with a helmet, for about 15 seconds, in front of seemingly unknowing people. At the 15 second mark, it becomes a huge group dance usually involving some bizarre costumes.
In the Volunteer student section’s version of the video, former Vol great and current Milwaukee Bucks forward Tobias Harris, led the dance. The video has over 40,00 views so far.

A video likely made even sweeter by the Vols 30 point 88-58 win over the Wildcats.
