Les Miles, LSU throw hats into ‘Harlem Shake’ mix

Look out, Frank Beamer.  You have some competition.

Last Monday, Virginia Tech released its foray into the ‘Harlem Shake” meme craze, which featured an absolutely spectacular and glorious solo number by their long-time head coach.  A week later, LSU has done the same and followed a similar script, with head coach Les Miles getting his groove on (or something) before all shaking hell breaks loose.

The video appears below, and, yes, the Mad Hatter’s appearance is as amazing as the concept sounds:


Well done, Coach Miles.  It’s not quite Beamer-level good, but it’s not bad at all on the unintentional comedy scale.

Now, Nick Saban, the ball’s in your court.  Please, for the love of all that’s good in the world, take it and run like hell with it.

    So that’s where those running backs get their moves at down there in bayou country. Awesome moves Les i bet that Nick Saban can’t move like that.

    Wasn’t that gangnam-style crap enough? Why are otherwise intelligent people always jumping on the bad-taste bandwagon?

    Saban did have a video back when he was a Bayou Bengal and he did not have the moves of Miles…ha. Spring practice has begun, maybe we can get to football again soon….not soon enough!ha.

    Apparently the Harlem Shake craze started about the time I took an Internet break. Thanks to LSU for the introduction. Beamer’s was good but too crowded. Loved that you could still see Les through all the chaos!

    It would take a lot of Little Debbies to get Nick to do that dance.

    Now we know what Miles and Beamer are doing while Saban is teaching his men to play football. What ever floats your boat. Looks more like something the Ole Ball Coach would do. I sure hope Coach Saban declines. ROOOL TIDE

    @henryjones- you don’t have to watch the videos to complain about them. You see one you seen them all. Now go find ur nutsack wherever you lost it.

    Les Miles probably doesn’t think Nick Saban “has the chest” to Harlem shake

    Focus on punctuation, not Internet memes. It explains a lot.

    He did that when became so excited that two of his football players actually got a C+ on a midterm exam…..without help and without cheating!
