The Harlem Shake has come to Goodyear

In case you haven’t heard, Nick Swisher is excited to be in Cleveland and a member of the Indians.

On Monday, that excitement manifested off the field: as the organizer of an Indians Harlem Shake video. The video will be released on in the next day or so, so stay tuned to TribeVibe and our social media channels. In the meantime, this photo gallery will have to do. A partial roster:

  • Green man: Jason Giambi
  • Camo man: Mark Reynolds
  • Human bear: Justin Masterson
  • Lloyd Christmas/Harry Dunne (from “Dumb and Dumber”): Chris Perez, David Huff
  • Mario with a diaper on: Lonnie Chisenhall
  • Reno 911! cop: Ubaldo Jimenez
  • Hot dog: Nick Hagadone
  • Disco man: Carlos Carrasco
  • Penguin: Zach McAllister
  • Parrot: Jason Kipnis
  • Ohio State football star: Nick Swisher

Cleveland media were on hand, too, and had these dispatches from Goodyear:

Paul Hoynes, Plain Dealer: “Told that bear costume he wore for Harlem Shake video looked like real bear, Masterson said: “It was a real bear. . .at one time.”

Jordan Bastian, Giambi on this morning’s Harlem Shake antics: “It was fun. That’s the stuff you need to build team unity.”

The Reno 911 sexy cop costume? Can confirm that Ubaldo Jimenez picked it out himself. Told Big U that I can’t un-see that. He laughed.

FOTFLOL I thought Nick Hagadone was dressed as Brian Wilson!

I was in Goodyear that day and can tell you they all seemed to be in a great mood when then came out for batting practice. Didn’t know they had made the video until the following day, but they sure look like a team – not just a bunch of guys playing ball. Can’t wait for this season!!
