THE HARLEM Shake stormed into the city last weekend when hundreds of students took part in their very own version of the popular viral phenomenon.

The global sensation has took the internet by storm in recent months, with groups of people ranging from rugby clubs to snooker audiences uploading their videos which have been watched by millions worldwide.

The videos last between 30-40 seconds and begin with one person dancing on their own with others around seemingly oblivious.

But when the bass on the song Harlem Shake by Baauer kicks in, everyone who before seemed as though they were not paying attention joins in.

Around 300 people joined in outside the Cathedral steps, many of which wore crazy outfits for the stunt.

Organiser and Coventry University student, Mihai Savin, said: “We wanted to do a Coventry edition of the Harlem Shake because the University, the city and the youngsters of this city deserve to be a part of it.”
