FAA Looking At CC Students Mid-Air Harlem Shake


From: Colorado Springs Gazette

On a Frontier Airlines flight from Colorado Springs to San Diego, the Harlem Shake strikes again. 

Colorado College students enroute to San Diego for an Ultimate Frisbee tournament filmed their version of the wild dance in the aisle of Flight 157, according to a story in The Catalyst, CC's student newspaper.

After more than 400,000 hits online, now comes an investigation by the Federal Aviation Administration.

“They are still looking into it, it’s still open,” Tony Molinaro, a spokesman for the FAA told the newspaper. “…I don’t know where the [investigators] were told about it, but when they saw the video they just decided to look into it because it is better to be safe than sorry.”

According to The Catalyst, in the video, one student starts dancing in the center aisle near the front of the aircraft. After about 15 seconds of music, everyone on board starts dancing in what one passenger called “a riot on a plane.”

I hope that this whole situation is solved with the FAA…,” Matt Zelin, the sophomore who filmed the dance and member of CC’s Frisbee team, told the newspaper. “I don’t see there being any reason why this should cause any trouble. We asked the staff and they said it was safe.”

DG were you picked on as a kid? You are always trying to get other schools in trouble. CC, Cornell. Did your mommy not love you enough?

I agree. It's not that long ago and I remember reading something about " no more anonymous posts.... decesion is final..... We're moving on.....bla, bla, bla"

I guess the fat man's ego is so enormous he couldn't tolerate how pathetic this blog has become. Crappy Boone articles that his three friends comment on, tired of listening to old pio's rambling about Nazi's, you get idea.

Time to get back to crapping on DU. Ps.... Your hockey team sucks sh@@.

Cornell? I don't hate Cornell.

I had to turn off the "Anonymous Block" today to edit the "DU Senate Resolution Post," which I had accidentally deleted. Forgot to switch it back.

Only took the trolls eight hours to discover the loophole. Amazing. Do you clowns have software that alerts you?

If you'd like I'll turn off "anonymous block" for 30 minutes once a month and the trolls can come in and get everything off their chests.

A million thanks for shutting out the pathetics. 30 minutes a month sound like a good amount of time for them. Though I wonder what they do with their lives when they can't post here.
