Watch Shaquille O'Neal ‘Harlem Shake’ Video With ‘Inside The NBA’ Crew

Shaquille O'Neal has joined his "Inside the NBA" crew members in a version of "Harlem Shake."

As Pro Basketball Talk noted, the hosts, including Charlie Barkley, Ernie Johnson and Kenny "The Jet" Smith, released their own version of the Internet meme last night. Like the others, the footage begins with one person (in this case, Shaq) dancing like a maniac while others sit and ignore him. Once the beat kicks up, the others join in, often with crazy costumes.

According to, the final scenes of the "Harlem Shake" video include one staff member performing stomach crunches wile Smith dribbles a ball and twirls an umbrella on top of the "Inside the NBA" set.

While many people have released their versions of "Harlem Shake" for fun, for Shaq the video was a bit more personal. The former Los Angeles Laker tweeted on Thursday night that the clip was in response to the Miami Heat's version that was released a few hours earlier.

The Los Angeles Times noted that the Heat's video begins with Chris "Birdman" Andersen flapping his arms around the Heat locker room, while his other teammates sit around and stretch. When then craziness ensues, LeBron James wears a crown, Dwyane Wade sports a giant bear head, and Mario Chalmers dons an homage to his video-game namesake.

They are not alone. Per ESPN Stats and Info, there are over 208,000 "Harlem Shake" videos currently on the web. Still, this is less than half the number of "Gangnam Style" videos on YouTube, which tops 435,000.

Indeed, the Toronto Raptors released their own version of "Harlem Shake," which, like the Heat's video, takes place inside the locker room. Coach Dwane Casey starts talking to his squad about defense when one player gets up and shakes about while wearing a mask. By the end of the clip, Amir Johnson is dressed like a giant chicken, while the masked man has added a Superman costume. A final remix includes a solo from a large dancing bunny.

Also last month, the Arizona Diamondbacks became the first Major League Baseball team to get in on the fun. As Yahoo Sports noted, the clip ends with Arizona manager Kirk Gibson running across the screen, fist-pumping like he did after his famous home run in the 1988 World Series.

You can watch Shaquille O'Neal and the rest of the "Inside the NBA" crew perform the "Harlem Shake" in the video below.
