Harlem Shakers take over Hernando County commission chambers

A frog, a banana and Superman walked into the Hernando County Commissioners chambers. In support of the county's safe house for victims of domestic violence, the three joined a group of about a dozen participants in producing a Harlem Shake video.

Organizers of Tuesday's version of the Internet video trend sought to raise awareness for the Dawn Center, a Hernando County organization that both houses and provides counseling and other assistance to women who have suffered domestic violence or sexual abuse. April is National Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month.

Following the bi-monthly county commission meeting, the group of costumed dancers crowded the chamber and displayed an array of moves to be set to New York producer Baauer's "Harlem Shake." Local multimedia producer Chris Fiffie was on hand to shoot the video, which joins a growing number of Harlem Shake videos created since the craze began sweeping the Internet earlier this year.
