Add the Miami Heat to the “Harlem Shake” craze.
With LeBron James in a king’s costume, Mario Chalmers dressed as Super Mario, and Chris “Birdman” Andersen — what else? — a bird, the Heat version of the dance craze was released Thursday.
It was filmed in Miami’s locker room, with James saying it was a “King James and DwyaneWade” production. “In life u gotta figure out how to have fun and enjoy it. Hope y’all enjoy,” Chalmers wrote on Twitter.
The dance is to the song of the same name, and countless videos have popped up where one person starts dancing, then the camera cuts to a large group of people dancing, many in costume.
The Heat have also gotten widespread attention lately for their pregame warmup dunk contests, videos of which have also gone viral. Oh, by the way, the reigning NBA champions also have the league’s longest current winning streak — 12 straight going into Friday’s game with Memphis.
