  1. I would suggest Scotty research this Harlle Shake. It was started by gang bangers and mimicked crippled people being shot.

  4. This is what Wikipedia says about the Harlem Shake:
    History

    The Harlem shake is a dance that originally began in Harlem, New York, in 1981.[1] Since its beginnings it has spread to other urban areas and became popular in music videos. The self-purported inventor of the dance was "Al B", a Harlem resident.[2] Because of its founder, the dance was originally called the "albee" in Rucker and Harlem, but then later became known as the Harlem shake.[3]

    Al B is quoted saying that the dance is "a drunken shake anyway, it's an alcoholic shake, but it's fantastic, everybody appreciates it." He said it comes from the ancient Egyptians and describes it as what the mummies used to do.[3] Because they were all wrapped up they couldn’t really move, all they could do was shake.[4][5] Al B states that he has been doing the Harlem shake since 1981. The dance first caught on at the Entertainer's Basketball Classic or EBC and spread from there to other areas.[3]
    In popular culture

    Though it started in 1981, the Harlem shake became mainstream in 2001 when G. Dep featured the dance in his music video "Let's Get It".[4][6]

    The Harlem shake is commonly associated with a similar dance move called 'The Chicken Noodle Soup'. The "Chicken Noodle Soup" evolved from the Harlem shake and exploded into popularity in the summer of 2006 when DJ Webstar and Young B brought it to the mainstream.[4] The dance is referred to in the CunninLynguists song, "Old School", in Mac Dre's song, "Thizzle Dance," and in Nelly's song, "Dilemma". A band from New York City took the name of the dance and dubbed themselves Harlem Shakes.

    In February 2013, an unrelated song named "Harlem Shake" originally uploaded to YouTube on May 10, 2012, went viral and became an Internet meme (see Harlem Shake meme). The "dance" being done in the Internet meme is not the Harlem shake.[7]

  6. Scotty and his band members did a fantastic job of making the concert fun. There was a great review on Fanbuff from a person that attended the concert who said Scotty's concert is the best concert she ever saw. Obviously from the videos shared to us I have to agree with her.

  8. Scotty did such a great job to get that crowd motivated for the skit,they had a blast.So much fun watching Scotty,the band,and the fans having so much fun.They all probably needed to take a rest after that,and no where to sit down .I love Scotty to pieces but there is no way I could stand thru a whole concert.I would be just like Schrick,and have to lay down,and rest.awhile.I seen where the man gives lessons for rhe dance moves to this ,and it's cute it's mostly moving the shoulders,and the feet a little.Scotty,did good
