A Little Fun at #HIMSS13 – The Harlem Shake Meme

A lot of business gets done at HIMSS. Although, I think that most would agree that one of the biggest values of going to HIMSS is the relationships you build which lead to business in the future. HIMSS often just lays the groundwork of relationships that can make future things happen.

With that in mind, it’s not surprising that there’s a lot of craziness that happens at HIMSS as well. Turns out a lot of people agreed that doing the Harlem Shake would be a great way to bond with people at HIMSS. Plus, I have to admit that I enjoy the break from the sometimes straight laced HIMSS event.

With that in mind, I’ve aggregated the Harlem Shake videos that were done at HIMSS 2013. They are all pretty entertaining to watch.

First up is a Harlem Shake at the Metro booth. This might be my favorite, because it includes a robot, a couple Healthcare Scene bloggers, and a number of #HITsm friends. I think you’ll enjoy it too. (Watch for the behind the scenes footage to be posted later).

Next up is the Emdeon Harlem Shake video. I love the girl in the chair that’s shaking while spinning. Too funny.

Finally, check out the CDW Harlem Shake. Nice job on the costumes for this one.

Nice work by all involved. I love seeing stuff like this since I think many take things a little bit too seriously. Nothing wrong with having a little fun in the process.
