'Supernatural' Harlem Shake video: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles and more in behind-the-scenes memeAdd to Favorites | Supernatural
While filming episode 819, "Taxi Driver," directed by Guy Bee, the "Supernatural" guys took a time-out from the on-screen angst for a behind the scenes to participate in the rampant internet meme created by Baauer's song "Harlem Shake." Teasing, Padalecki tweeted, "Well, doin' a Harlem Shake.... And, yes, there is a camera rolling... Great..." and once the bosses signed off, he posted the vid.
Though Padalecki is known for his on-set antics, word is that this particular video was actually Ackles' idea.
The song went viral this year thanks to a whole lot of people posting 30-second videos of themselves in various odd costumes, dancing to the first part of Baauer's song. Unfortunately, the "Supernatural" crew may be a little too late with this one. The meme has, apparently, been declared dead... it seems that once Al Roker puts on a cupid costume, the cool factor is murdered.
That said, a lot of things come back from the dead on "Supernatural."
