English National Ballet's Harlem Shake video

Hey there,

So you've probably heard of it by now, the internet video meme that's been running rampant, the Harlem Shake.
The Harlem Shake is an Internet meme in the form of a video of various groups of people performing a comedy sketch accompanied by a short excerpt from the song "Harlem Shake". As a meme, the video was replicated by many people, using the same concept, and this rapidly led to it becoming viral in early February 2013,[1] with thousands of "Harlem Shake" videos being made and uploaded to YouTube every day at the height of its popularity.
And the English National Ballet has joined the memetic band wagon.

I think this is awesome. Good for them for letting their proverbial hair down.

Curious to see what others think.

And have you seen other examples of artists or arts organization being inspired to join this or any other internet memes?
