US: Harlem Shake on board a flight lands students in trouble, FAA launches probe

Colorado Springs: The latest craze to sweep the Internet is bringing college students the wrong kind of attention - from the Federal Aviation Administration. During a flight from Colorado Springs to San Diego, a group of students started the Harlem Shake, a dance to a song of the same name.

In the suddenly popular YouTube videos, one person starts dancing, then the video cuts to a large group of people dancing, many in costume. Matt Zelin, a sophomore, told the Colorado College newspaper, The Catalyst, he asked a flight attendant for permission beforehand.

FAA spokesman Allen Kenitzer said on Thursday they're looking at what phase the flight was in during the dance in the aisles.
