Rep. Joe Farias Does Harlem Shake For Public Education

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

It's pretty clear that some Democrats will stop at nothing to prevent further cuts to public education. Most House Democrats showed their support by attending the Save Texas Schools Rally, but San Antonio Representative Joe Farias instead did the Harlem Shake. Joined by some enthusiastic staffers he broke it down for his colleagues who are feeling the pressure to restore education funding from their own districts' parents and educators.

If you're not familiar with the copycat-inspiring viral video, Know Your Meme does an excellent breakdown. Urban Dictionary defines the dance itself as an 'An eccentric upper body dance move that involves the shaking of the upper torso and shoulders'.  Sure in internet years it's past its prime, but when 1/3 of the #txlege isn't even on twitter, I'll shake to that.
