The Harlem Shake at Megacon 2013

SO!!

I was watching some of those Harlem Shake videos that have been catching fire on the internet and as ridiculous as they are I can't help myself but crack up at the end of each video. Tonight a question popped in my head that had me compelled to ask all of you guys here in the coscom community and that question is

Who would be down on making a giant cosplayer Harlem Shake video at Megacon?

Now Im pretty sure there are groups already planning on doing this but I thought it would be cool if we all worked together to make a giant one and planned a time to do so. Now my idea didn't stop just there. I wanted to ask and see if all the Organizers of each individual photoshoot/cosplay group thread would be in on recording a Harlem Shake for each group that's planned on meeting throughout the weekend. Maybe we can get a compilation of videos up online to remember Megacon by this year ^_^

I know this may be kinda silly for some but I'm sure it would be a blast to do and after its said and done we'll all have something great to look back on for Megacon 2013!

WHO'S WITH ME?

-UPDATE-

So it appears that the general consensus between multiple groups is that we are meeting up on Friday at 6:00 pm in between the main escalators by Hall D. I'm spreading the word here so we can get as many people to join us. Here is the link to the main Facebook event page for this giant meetup https://www.facebook.com/events/141886729309534/ . If you can't see the event feel free to add me on Facebook so you can join (my info is in my profile =D)

He starts shooting at the bastard.

He starts shooting.

Be like Han.

Lauren I'm already in the group haha
Also in between the escalators right by Hall D is the PERFECT spot to do it. I was going to get a camera and record from the second floor granted we get enough people to show. The group on Facebook wants to do it Friday at 6 which all good by me. I know there will be some that can't do that time so I'm going to suggest we do another big one Saturday as well.

Also don't forget I want to do smaller individual group theme related Harlem shakes if each of the cosplay groups that are meeting up are interested
