The #BostonShake: Having Fun at Work

No, this is not a post about the Harlem Shake. It's a post about how much fun I get to have at work.

We are a creative bunch. We pay attention to online trends. Lately, the Harlem Shake has been one of those trends we've been following.

We've been yapping about potentially doing one of our own Harlem Shakes. After a quick brainstorm -- and I mean like :30 seconds quick -- we decided to mash up the Harlem Shake with a flashmob.

I introduce you to the #BostonSHAKE:

I know, I know...it's not nearly as funny as some of the others out there. It's downright silly. I know this and that's ok. It's ok, because one, I'm on the clock while doing this. Two, we totally threw this together and it came out pretty decent, considering. Three, it showed that we have a big enough reach on social media that we could not only get a bunch of random people to participate, but also have three news crews and one online media outlet show up. Four, did I mention that I get paid to do this stuff? 

Haters are going to hate and that's ok. We had fun doing it and that's all that matters.
