FRESNO, Calif. - Fresno State Bulldog student-athletes joined TimeOut to create it's own Harlem Shake on Monday afternoon in the strengh and conditioning center on campus, and the fun 30-second video has already received over 3,000 views on YouTube in less than 24 hours since being posted.

"We wanted to be the first athletics department in the nation to produce a remake of the viral hit video and we knew we had a chance with this one because the original was release late last week," Senior Associate Athletics Director Paul Ladwig said.

The video features TimeOut dancing by himself before being joined by student-athletes from baseball, football, lacrosse, softball, equestrian and track and field, as well as two cheerleaders and a tuba player from the Bulldogs' marching band.

In order ensure a quick taping and set the standard for all other Harlem Shake remakes to be compared against in the coming days, Fresno State staff coordinated the taping and both shots used in the final piece were original takes.

"We know our Bulldogs have fun every day," Ladwig said. "Once we showed all the student athletes the video, their eyes lit up and rallied together to make this another memorable Fresno State moment."
